Most of our travelers doing a safari in northern Tanzania live for one or a few nights at Arusha Planet Lodge or Summit Safari Lodge before and/or after the safari.

If you are staying for a few nights at Planet Lodge without a program, you can take a taxi into central Arusha and visit, for example, Arusha Cultural Center or Masai Market. If you want to do a little longer excursion, Arusha National Park is a great day trip. In Arusha National Park you can do a game drive in jeep or a walking safari guided by an armed ranger.
