Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 -Day 1 - Kilimanjaro International Airport - Arusha City

A staff member of Gosheni Safaris will pick you up from the Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). From here you will be driven to your hotel in Arusha and gain briefing on your upcoming safari. Enjoy a restful night before beginning your adventure tomorrow!

Arusha, also known as “A” Town by the locals, is situated at the foot of Mount Meru, Africa’s 5th highest mountain. The altitude gives the city a pleasant climate and lush green environment. Arusha is not a particularly attractive city in itself and is regarded by many visitors as little more than a necessary stopover before their safari starts in earnest. However, the natural charm of the Tanzanians and the buzz of a fast-growing city mean that Arusha has plenty to offer for those who are prepared to see beyond their air-conditioned safari trucks and satellite-TV equipped hotel rooms
