Travel Tips from people who've been to Arusha
Never, ever walk alone during the night in Arusha and its surroundings. It is not sae, not even for a few meters. Get a cab (deal the price before). Stories of rapes, attacks, robberies, carjacks, murders and others are not uncommon, so don't ever walk at night (sun sets at about 7 pm by the way).

Arusha is not a good place to go without a car and a guide driving it, really dangerous, people there aren't nice and you might get robbed if you don't pay attention!

Stay at L'Oasis Lodge. Management and staff are fantastic. It's like a home away from home.
