Discussion on Arusha

rockabillyrainbow :

my son would like to take African Drum lessons while we are in Arusha on June 17 or 18th. is this possible?

Hello, I miss you quite terribly :
"probably..."
Love Generator :
"of course, if there is a will there is a way."
Eva :

I am going to be living in Arusha Tanzania from Sept-December this year to do an internship. I don't know how to find a room/house to rent and would appreciate any help. I usually look at Craig's list, but there is no section on Tanzania. Help!!!

oldjalopy :
"I don't see any easily found accommodation in Arusha that would offer you security and be centrally situated for your needs. I would try and negotiate with one of the local hotels for a discounted price for your stay. One of them might be able to point you in the right direction? The Arusha hotel might be a starting point but their web site is not up and running properly yet. You can get the phone no. and postal address for them off it if required. Sorry I cannot help you more."
embe dodo :
"just try to get in touch with some of the hostels ,in there as for rents of couple month like your needs can be suites at hostels like YWCA,a christian hostels,but for a hotel will be a bit expensives,or moreover just check in with the site"
jamisonshuck :
"The Arusha Backpackers hotel houses a lot of long stay guests, its right downtown in central Arusha and there are a lot of rooms. I only stayed there like a week and it was like $5 US per night so a long stay rent there should not be too expensive"
Eva :

I love swimming and am moving to Arusha in September. Are there any big swimming pools there I could use?

oldjalopy :
"As there are a lot of Tourist hotels in Arusha I should think that some of them would let you use their pools, although I do not think that they would be very large swimming pools.? I have not been to Arusha for some years now but remember it being quite cold compared to Tanga where I lived for a while. The Mount Meru hotel in Arusha has a fairly good pool so I've just been told."
embe dodo :
"yes there is a lots of them in mst of the Tourist hotel in Arusha ,so do not worry about it"

Ol Doinyo Lengai is a unique and extremely fascinating volcano that is located in the African Rift valley about 120 km NW of Arusha, Tanzania. It is the only volcano in the world that erupts natrocarbonatite lava, a highly fluid lava that usually contains almost no silicon.

This news was just announced today but it’s already making the rounds in the blogosphere, and with good reason. The now worldwide phenomenon – ok, conference – TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) that was so wildly successful in Arusha earlier this year will be returning to Africa for another go.
