Located near the border of Kenya and a few kilometers from Kilimanjaro, this city in northern Tanzania is a great place to get organized for any safari in this part of the country. Almost all of the trips to Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park or Mount Kilimanjaro start from this place. The city itself has nothing super interesting as everything revolves around the safaris. The agencies and tourist hunters dominate the streets. In Tanzania it is quite difficult to get free safaris so you´ll most likely have to hire the services of an agency. Due to the large number of these, it is essential to compare prices and services.
