Is Arusha city Tanzania a model in the hospitality industry of Africa?

Some would argue that this is the safari capital of Africa, being close proximity to mt Meru, Mt Kilimanjaro (highest peak of Africa) and the most famous national parks in Africa ,"The Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Seronera, Manyara " . The region being rich in water and natural resources like the Tanzanite (only place it can be mined in the world) has in recent years finally got the prestige it deserves.
Home to the former United nations tribunal court, current home to the East African community, Nelson Mandela's university, Makumira university , and host of the popular East Africa travel show (Karibu) the city is legend to millions of tourists visiting Tanzania every year for Safari,mountain climbing, domestic travel etc.
The hospitality industry is also a booming business in the region with more high end hotels, lodges, restaurants and travel services like no other in Tanzania, almost everyone living in the region is somehow dependent to the hospitality industry for employment.
All this begs the question "Is Arusha city a model in the hospitality industry of Africa?" the answer may not be as simple  because the region still has it's hiccups in things like infrastructure, power outages,unreliable health services etc but as many third world countries the region is still finding itself and still has long ways to go but it's a step to the right direction and better than many other Africa cities when it comes to hospitality.
