Travelling Information

This is possible, and can take about 13 hours solid driving.

The banks in town are Standard, Barclays, Exim, CRDB, NBC, NMB.

There is a clinic. Hospitals are the Selian Hospital, AAR clinic, and Aga Khan hospital.

You may want to spend a morning in Arusha gathering information and completing the formalities to enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You have to pass through this area if you wish to enter the Serengeti from the east, and you have to pay separate entry fees in each area per person and per vehicle.

It’s possible to pay using a credit card at the entrance gate for the Serengeti, but not so for Ngorongoro, where you have to deposit the required fees into their bank account, which details you get at the Ngorongoro office in Arusha. Then upon presenting the deposit slip at the Ngorongoro office in Karatu, the last village before Ngorongoro, one is issued with a Ngorongoro Card to be presented at the entrance gate.

There are many internet café's and tour services in town.

The Shoprite is very well stocked. Friendly and efficient staff. Driving through the centre of town along the main road, can take very long. Use the bypass instead, it will be much quicker.

50km in town and there are usually police everywhere.

There are bus Terminal/s.

“Arusha is a large and very busy city. Using the bypass will take less time than driving through the centre of town along the main road.” - Mietsie Visser, 2013/03/04
