how to find a flat in Arusha? (Dar es Salaam)

dear all,
I am about to move to Arusha soon. I have never looked for a housing opportunity there or somewhere else in TZ before, so I would be happy for your advise.
how to find an apartment in Arusha? are there agencies? or is it better to ask around? I am worrying a little bit about mzungu prices..
what I have in mind, is a simple 1 bedroom apartment, furnished, with shower/toilet, small kitchen. what I don't want is to be in danger when leaving the house without company, so I would prefer some safer part of the city, but I don't need any high-class guarded complex.
do you have any experience which additional expenses do I have to count? electrity, utilities, water, ... when a rent is Protected content , how much else would I have to pay for housing...
I would be very happy about any reply of some of you experienced "tanzanians".
thank you so much.
so long,
melanie
