1 Best Sight in Arusha, Tanzania

Cultural Heritage Centre

If you haven't yet picked up your gifts and curios, then stop by Arusha's Cultural Heritage Centre. Designed to resemble the Uhuru peak of Kilimanjaro, it's a monolith of a curio shop only 3 km (2 miles) out of town. You can buy carvings, jewelry (including the gemstone tanzanite), colorful African clothing, local music, and much more. It's a bit pricey so take advantage of the free museum that is part of the complex to get your money's worth. There are also detailed exhibits on various aspects of Tanzania's culture and heritage and an extensive art gallery.
