Located in the Eastern Africa, Tanzania shares its border with the Indian Ocean and the countries of Zambia, Rwanda, Kenya, Burundi, Congo, Malawi, Uganda and Mozambique. The country has a coastline of 1,424 km. Its climate varies from temperate in highlands to tropical along coast. Tanzania is home to the Mount Kilimanjaro the highest point in Africa.

The major highlight of Arusha is the Arusha National Park which is the natural habitat of giraffe, black and white colobus monkeys, zebra and buffalo. Spread over a small area of 137 sq km, Arusha National Park is 2 hours away from Tarangire National Park which is also full of game.
