Arusha is a town of approximately 400,000 people according to Wikitravel, or 1.2 million according to Wikipedia, so, you know, big... -ish. It's a popular stopover spot before beginning a safari, which is exactly what we're doing. There are apparently some great markets to do a little bargaining and buying of handmade area goods.

Arrived in Dar Es Salaam at 02.30, quickly off plane with already filled visa forms -so we're 2nd in queue for visa - always pays to be well prepared! Still seems to take forever for visas to be issued, but so glad we're not at the back of the queue. Straight through passport control and customs to arrivals and then back into departures - …

Great stay at the African Tulip. Large, clean rooms with a big, warm shower. Extremely welcoming, nice, friendly staff. They were the highlight of our stay! Very helpful with whatever we needed. There was wi-fi in the rooms for, I think, $10usd for a 24 hour period. The food was okay, usually there was a buffet or you could order off the menu. I'd definitely recommend if you have a stay in Arusha.
