Foreword

Looking back a short space of years, to that period immediately after the war, Arusha was scarce a hamlet. Shops were few; garages and motor cars not at all. Ox-drawn waggons lumbered along the road to the railhead at Moshi, the journey occupying sometimes more than a week. Arusha was 'in the blue' almost unheard of, but not unsung, for those who had the opportunity of seeing the fertile slopes, the running streams, then unbridged, never tired of praising the scenery and the climate. Thus it was that a few intending settlers came and saw, and having seen staked their claims and are to-day the happy owners of beautiful homesteads and flourishing plantations. Those who see it to-day, with its railway just completed, its up-to-date hotel and its stores, see but the half completed dream of the early settlers. Floreat Arusha !

Geographical and other features

Arusha is situate approximately 3' South Lat. and 37' East Long. It is exactly midway between Cairo and Cape Town and is territorially the centre of Tanganyika, Kenya and Uganda.

The altitude of the township is 4,613 feet above sea level and the surrounding country varies between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. As a background to the township Mount Meru towers its 14,960 feet into-azure skies and-along its slopes are dotted plantations and the huts and. groves of the Warusha and Wameru tribes.

The maximum temperature ranges between 70 and 80 degrees fh. and the minimum between 50 and 60 degrees fh. The hotest months are January and February, and heat is dissipated by the monsoon or " bigrains" commencing about 25th of March. The coldest Weather is experienced from June to August, then follows a spell of mildly warm Weather which continue through the "small rains."

The rainfall is approximately 45 inches for the year, 75 per cent. of which fall during the " big rains."

Arusha as a Coffee-growing District

Existing Plantations ars mainly situated on the Southern slopes of Mount Meru (14,960 ft.), but excellent plantations have also been established on the Western, Northsrn and Eastern Slopes where, on account of soil differences, it was at one time thought Coffee would not thrive. This fallacy has been disproved by the very fine plantations now existing, and with it has been exploded the belief that Coffee would only grow in what was at one time known as the " Coffee Belt." This belt is perhaps still the best producing area on account of the rainfall it enjoys and also on account of its very generous water supply from many permanent rivers.

From the Eastern end of the mountain, the base of which is approximately twenty miles wide, there are the Maji ya Chai, the Usa, the Magadorisho, the Tengeru, the Malala, the Magameru, the Nduruma, the Kidjenji, the Themi [Temi], the Naru, the Narok, the Burka and the Engare OI'motonyi, which cross the main road from Moshi. Higher up in the mountain there are tributaries feeding these main streams, making this area the best watered in East Africa.

This "belt" is, however, not now the exclusive Coffee-growing area that it was. Plantations having been established as far afield as Mbugwe (near Lake Manyara), Babati, Ndereda and near Mbulu; Eighty to One Hundred and Fifty miles west of Arusha, while on the southern slopes of the Mondul range, about twenty-five miles west of Arusha, there is an excellent plantation.

The type of Coffee grown is Arabica; Mocha, and Blue Mountain varieties predominating, but a comparitively new variety known as "Kent's Hybrid" is finding favour and many planters are now planting this variety for its disease resisting qualities.

One great advantage to the young planter is that Coffee in this district bears its first fly-crop at about 2 1/2 years and at 3 1/2 years a crop which in cases have reached as high as 3/4 of a ton of parchment to the acre, while subsequent crops have reached the high-water mark of 1 1/4 tons of parchment to the acre. Such heavy bearing, however, it is advocated should be discouraged, as the trees in after years may suffer, but good soil, altitude and rainfall, or the lack of it, are factors which are largely responsible for differences of opinion in matters concerning Coffee-growing. It is well-known, however, that given the necessary plant food, good rains, etc., the Coffee tree is a most prolific bearer.

It is not intended here to go into the capital necessary to establish a Coffee Plantation, as so much depends on the land to be cleared and indeed on the individual himself, that it is only possible to say that a general figure of 5,000 is quoted as being sufficient in ordinary circumstances to acquire land and to plant up and bring to the bearing stage an area which should bring the investor a good return on the capital outlay, plus a good living, and there is, of course, also the appreciation of land values.

It will be readily understood that a District so prolific for Coffee-growing is also suited to Fruit, and indeed to any plant life. Citrus may be said to almost grow wild, while Tomatoes once planted reappear after the first rains as a weed. With Coffee as the main crop and with transport difficulties in the past, perhaps insufficient attention has been given in the past to Fruit Culture, but where the settler has had an eye on the future, there are fine orchards containing Orange, Lemon, Fig, Guava, Avocado Pear, Apple, Plum, Peach, Lauquat, Paw-paw, Mulberries, Grapes, etc., in flourishing condition, while Strawberries are equal to the best. The Banana is even more prolific than Coffee and forms the chief diet of the local indigenous population.

Roses are generally in bloom the year round and horticulturists will find a veritable Eden in Arusha.

Hitherto planters and settlers have expended all their energies in establishing their plantations and farms, but as these are brought to fruition, fine homesteads are being erected; green lawns appear and a 'little piece of England' is transplanted under tropic skies.

Perhaps much of the equable climatic conditions enjoyed in Arusha are due to the vast snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro (19,760 ft.), the highest mountain in Africa, which lies due East and from whose eternal snows the pravailing winds waft a delightfully cool and health-giving breeze.

Sisal and Maize find favour on Arusha Plains

Sisal-growing is a coming industry in Arusha and the vast plain lying ' directly south of Mount Meru and bounded in the north by the railway, is imminently suited for Sisal culture. Here there are vast level stretches of land which requires very little clearing and thus saves much capital expenditure. There is ample water, especially in the Kikuletwa River below the confluences of the Maji ya Chai, Usa, Magadorisho, Tengeru and Malala rivers, and there are similar facilities on the Loldiloi below the confluence of the Themi and Kidjenji rivers. Big Sisal interests are already planting up their holdings in this area.

Maize is also a prolific bearer in the district and 15 bags to the-acre may be said to be a good average crop. During 1929 an unprecedented drought was experienced in the low-lying parts of the district and the crop generally was a failure, but in the higher regions around Meru and Kilimanjaro the crop was an excellent one.

Arusha holds the Cup for the best District Coffee Exhibit at the Agricultural and Horticultural Society of Kenya Show at Nairobi in 1928.

The Hunter's Paradise

It is safe to say that Tanganyika holds a front place among our East African Colonies for the number and variety of its game animals. The belt from Tanga through to Lake Victoria is where game is most numerous. There is an abundance of the commoner antelope, and in certain parts the rarer species such as the Greater and Lesser Kudu, Gerenuk, etc., are still fairly plentiful. Big game like the Elephant, Rhinocerous, Lion and Buffalo, all of which hold for the hunter a new thrill and experience, are to be found in this area in such a variety of country and cover that the Hunting of no two animals is ever alike.

Here the hunter passes through most interesting country; Kilimanjaro with its snow-capped dome, running streams and dense forests, across the plains to the Natron Lakes and the Great Rift Wall with its volcanic formation and on to the great Crater, Ngorongoro. In his travels he will come into contact with some of the most interesting and picturesque tribes that inhabit Africa such as the Masai, Wambulu, etc., each with their own quaint customs and histories.

The Ngorongoro Crater, the greatest crater in the world, measuring approximately 12 miles in diameter, seen from the Mbulu side, is a delight to the eye with its teeming herds of game ; Wildebeest alone running into tens of thousands. This scene conveys to one the idea of a great National Park. Nature has provided the crater with a precipitous rock fence for tns most part and with lakes and streams to slake the thirst of the great game herds which inhabit it. The unalienated part of the crater is now a complete game reserve in which a great variety of game is to be found such as Rhinoceros, Hippopotamus, Lion, and all the smaller fry. The Elephant although not in the crater is to be found in the forests nearby.

The Serengetti Plains lying away to the northwest of the crater holds its full share of animal life and here the sportsman has the widest possible choice of trophies. The Lion in this area holds full sway and is still to be seen in troops of from ten to twenty. Recently, Serengetti and Lion pictures have become synonymous. The commoner species of game are here in abundance and the plains are second only to the crater for game concentration. The country lying between the Grumeti River - Orangi River and the Mbalangeti from Lake Victoria to the Mou-Kilimafetha Road has recently been declared a game reserve.

Game animals that inhabit the northern area are well protected an'd their existence is assured to posterity by the great game sanctuaries and regulations which govern the Hunting or photographing of game.

In the Northern area there are six complete reserves and two closed areas. These are as follows:

(1) Kilimanjaro.

(2) Mount Meru.

(3) Lake Natron

(4) Northern Railway.

(5) Ngorongoro.

(6). Serengetti.

The closed areas are :

Pienaar's Heights, near Babati and Sangessa Steppe in the Kondoa district. The boundaries for these are laid down in the Game Preservation Ordinance No. 41 of 1921. There are, however, vast areas open to the hunter and the abovementioned sanctuaries do not in any way detract from the available sport which the Northern Tanganyika has to offer.

The following game licences are now in force (Shillings)

:Visitor's Full Licence - 1500

Visitor's Temporary Licence (14 days) - 200

Resident's Full Licence - 300

Resident's Temporary Licence (14 days) - 60

Resident's Minor Licence - 80

Giraffe Licence - 150

Elephant Licence 1st. - 400

2nd. - 600

To hunt the Black Rhinoceros in the Northern Province it is now necessary to hold a Governor's Licence, the fee for which is 150/-. This entitles the holder to hunt one male Rhinoceros. Elephant, Giraffe, and Rhinoceros Licences may only be issued to holders of full game licences.

Now that the Railway is through to Arusha it is not too much to hope that with the assistance of a healthy public opinion the Sanya Plains may become restocked with game which would be a great source of interest and an attraction to the traveller visiting these parts.

Settlement and Projected Railways

Although the areas immediately around Kilimanjaro and Meru are fairly well settled, it is by no means closely settled and there are still areas unused and which may become available for alienation.

There are however, definite areas open to settlers in the "Ufiome Triangle" and Mbulu, and these areas are fast becoming settled. There is little doubt that at no distant future these districts will be served by a railway connecting Arusha with the Central Line.

Arusha, there is little doubt, will not remain the railhead for any great period. Government have in view a connection with the Central Line, but whether this projected line will run via Mbugwe, Kondoa Irangi and Dodoma or via Mbugwe, Singida and Manyoni, is at present not decided on. Gen. Hammond and the General Manager of the Tanganyika Railways recently discussed the projected line with local public bodies who were in favour of the latter route.

In either case the projected line will tap the rich "Ufiome Triangle" and the highlands west of the Rift Valley escarpment. Fifty to Sixty farms have been taken up in recent years in the sub-district of Mbulu, both above and below the escarpment.

There is also under consideration a branch from the Moshi-Arusha line to Engare Nairobi on the western slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, and such line it is hoped, will later be joined with the Kenya and Uganda Railway near Kajiado, thus shortening the north and South route considerably and making direct communication with the Kenya capital.

Road Communication

The Great North Road passes through Arusha, which is the exact centre between Cape Town and Cairo in a straight line. To the East there are roads to Moshi, Voi, Mombasa and Tanga; to the West to Mbugwe, Mbulu, Babati, Singida, Mkalama, Shinyanga (the Diamond Fields) and Mwanza the southern lake port; to the North to Nairobi and Kenya; to the South to Dodoma, Iringa, Tukuyu, Fife and South Africa.

Roads in Tanganyika are on the whole excellent in dry weather and certain sections even in wet weather. The sections over lava ash which disintegrates in dry weather is especially better after rains. Swampy or low-lying sections have recently had the attention of government and the work is still proceeding. Given reasonable weather conditions all important centres can be reached by road from Arusha.

The best traditions of British sportmanship is followed in Arusha and the Northern Province. Arusha itself has two Rugby Football Clubs and a team for the dribbling code, as well as a Cricket Eleven.

Moshi is not behind Arusha in Sport, and there is always a friendly rivalry between these two towns in all forms of Sport.

Health in the Township

One is struck by the low incidence of tropical diseases prevalent in the Township. Malaria is definitely uncommon and the Town is not ringed around at close contact with a highly 'infective native population and although "Anopheline" mosquitos are not unknown, their main breeding ground is known and can consequently be dealt with. An old adage "it is better to be safe than sorry" should be remembered in connection with the use of mosquito nets. Other of the more common tropical diseases are conspicuous by their absence in the Township.

Certain persons when they first arrive in Arusha may be under the impression that the place does not suit them but I think that most people require a short time to adjust themselves to the altitude; I know that when I first went to Tabora from Dar-es-Salaam my nose bled.

The water and food supply of Arusha is good and adequate with the exception of milk but it is hoped that early next year a definite control will be put over the native milk supply.

The appointment of a European Sanitary Inspector in Arusha has done and will do much for the Sanitation of the Township. Arusha i,s a young place and before a few years are past many of its primitive featues e.g. the carriage of water in tins from the springs to the houses will be done away with and these things accomplished there is no reason why Arusha with its cool climate (blankets always required at night) should not be a resort for recuperation from the depressions of the coast and the ills of other townships.

Usa and it's Possibilities

Situated on the south-eastern slopes and at the foot of Mount Meru, approximately 14 miles from Arusha, lies Usa, perhaps, the most densely settled in the whole of Tanganyika.

From. the main road, one looks at green wooded slopes with houses nestling among the trees, while above the farms lie the banana and maize plantations of the Wameru and majestic Meru itself with its barren rocky summit, a towering sentinel over the peaceful scene below.

As brevity is essential, it would not do to dwell too long on the grandeur of the scenery with which nature has endowed Usa; suffice it to say that she has been lavish in her gifts.

A recent unofficial census shewed a total European population of 125 in the Usa area, most of the planters being engaged in the production of Coffee. Saw and flour mills form additional industries, and it is gratifying to hear from the settlers the unbounded confidence they have in their small part of the territory.

The Usa Planters Association

The Usa Planters Association which boasts a large and active membership under the Presidency of General Boyd-Moss, C.M.G., D.S.O., has formed an Angling Society, and intends to stock the Usa and Chai Rivers with Trout; its Rifle Association with Major Russell, O.B.E., M.C.,as Chairman, has built its own Range, and in Competition Shooting is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Looking down towards the Masai Reserve in the South and South-east, one sees the valley of the Kikuletwa, an area comprising roughly a quarter of a million acres, rich in possibilities and crying out for development. Approximately. 60,000 acres have already been alienated and Sisal planting has commenced by three large Companies.

It is to this fertile land of volcanic ash that many settlers are looking for the future of the whole of the Usa area, one thinks, not without justification, for Sisal can be produced more cheaply there than in heavily wooded country which requires expensive clearing.

Time will prove as to whether ones faith has been groundless, but no matter how unkind nature may prove in the future, she will have a tremendous barrier to break down, that of unbounded optimism, and the faith of the Usa Settlers in the future of their Area.
