Sakina is a new-build area on the slopes of Mount Meru in the northern part of town. Strategically placed just north of the main Nairobi-Moshi road, the area is ideal for a quick getaway to the nearby Kilimanjaro and Arusha national parks, the Ngorongoro conservation area, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti game reserve.
There are some large and attractive houses here but the local infrastructure is poor and water and electricity supplies are a problem.
There is a good supermarket, a couple of mid-range hotels, a few guesthouses and a number of places serving the traditional “nyama choma” (roasted meat) including “Trooper”, the local favourite.
