I have met and seen poverty on many levels. I have studied poverty in books and pictures. Nothing can prepare u for the level of poverty u will experience in Arusha. Nothing will ever capture your heart as much as the warmth and heart felt compassion u will incur as u look into the eyes of the children, hug them,... More

The real Africa. The poverty is confronting but the noise and smells and atmosphere are not to be missed. Go to the local markets.

We did a one day tour to a close Massai Boma nearby Arusha with Raymond - our nice guide from the Tanzania Tourist Board in Arusha. It was a great experience, because we really had the possibility to get in touch and talk to massai people and experience their way of life. We also had the chance to see a... More

The banana plantations, children playing outside, some are carrying bananas to the market, cooking outside of the modest homes in contrast to new and very modern stone houses of the wealthier families. We "helped" cooking bananas to prepare the local... More

Prices were more expensive than other places we visited and although there was a good selection, we did not purchase anything. In and out in about 30 minutes.

I had the food fortune to visit Arusha, Tanzania for 10 days of volunteering in an orphanage and then a 10-day Safari through the Serengeti. It is not a trip for everyone but if you are adaptable and really wish to experience the beauty of Tanzania, the culture of the people, the various tribes including the Maasi, gorgeous animals, and...
