Arusha is located by the foot of Mount Meru. Yearly, the temperature ranges from 13 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius, and the seasons between wet and dry seasons. Due to Arusha's altitude, dry air is prevalent.

Arusha is also the Hindi name for the rising sun. Arusha's clock tower is supposedly situated at the midpoint between Cairo and Cape Town, therefore representing the halfway point between the two terminii of the old British Empire in Africa. The clock tower is currently adorned by the logo of the Coca-Cola Company.
