Arusha is a city located in Tanzania. It is the Head Quarter of the East Africa Community and the central point in Africa between Cape Town and Cairo. The city was first occupied by Maasai in 1830, who built seasonal shelters of interwoven sticks. It was later inhabited by the Arusha people who originated from the Arusha Chini area of the Kilimanjaro Region. The Arusha is distinct from but related to the Maasai. Its economy is defined by agriculture and wildlife preserve areas. The average annual temperature typically varies from 13°C to 28.3°C.

Arusha is Tanzania’s centre of tourism. It has the world’s great wildlife refuges like Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Tarangire. It also has the Arusha National Park and is surrounded by famous mountains such as Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. None the less, the city houses some top industries such as GOGO Ltd, Anicrop Services Ltd, Kingdom Group & Enterprises and KPMG.
