Where to eat in Arusha? Arusha Town, historically is Northern Tanzania’s trading, and also its cultural centre. With Tanzania having a huge range of cultural influences, from traditional Bantu through Arabesque Swahili and more recent British and German cultural imports it’s no wonder that the variety of food available in Arusha town is so wide. Safariland Cottages does offer fully catered accommodation but we also encourage guests to explore the town and the dining available with the local businesses.
