Discover African rituals and customs

Famous worldwide as the seat of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, this African city is an important international diplomatic centre. The Clock Tower area is its central hub and one of the most photogenic locations in the city. If you plan to visit Arusha, we recommend you start by getting to know its bustling markets. In the great Central Local Market you can taste the typical local dishes, and in the Maasai Market you can learn more about the lovely handicrafts of this iconic African tribe. The most popular souvenir is the shuka, the colourful blanket that identifies members of the tribe. Wandering around the outskirts of the city and seeing how the rural community grows potatoes, corn and coffee is also an experience you must not miss.
