Arusha City Facts
With an estimated total population of 1,288,088, including 516,000 for the Arusha District alone, this is one African city where the thriving thrills of urbanity can distinctly be appreciated. Of course, since it’s in Africa, one can’t be too surprised to see plenty of dust. It’s also quite ethnic, making Arusha a city where you can learn so much of Africa’s rich heritage. What makes this multi-cultural city so awesome is the fact that it sits surrounded by some of Africa’s infamous national parks and not to forget landscapes.
