Situated below Mount Meru in Northern Tanzania, Arusha is a burgeoning city whose economy relies on tourism and agriculture. Located 250 kilometres south of Nairobi, the city has been designated the capital of the East African Community.
With a 4% annual growth rate, Arusha is growing faster than many other parts of the region. This is due in part to the city's political importance but also its prominence as the chosen location for several notable institutions, including the United Nations War Tribunals for Rwanda and Burundi, the Aga Khan University, and Nelson Mandela's African Institute of Science and Technology, East Campus.
