Usa River Satellite City is a planned urban settlement on the outskirts of Arusha City. The project is developed by the National Housing Corporation, the same company involved in Safari City planning, the other Arusha satellite city. Satellite towns in Tanzania represent the need to find a durable solution to the growing housing demand, the increasing population and consequent risk of unplanned urban sprawl.
