We arrived at the Rivertrees Inn after 30 hours of wakeful travel. Their hospitality to sit and have a refreshing drink while we were briefed on the lodge and surroundings was very comforting. Our cabin was a bit rustic (part of its charm), but super clean and a very comfy bed with the pretty netting curtain around it. We spent... More

Like many others, this was our first stop before starting our Tanzania safari. We arrived very late at night after travelling all day and were greeted by friendly staff and a much-needed welcome drink. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Food was great and staff were more than happy to adjust menu to suit my GF dietary requirements. The... More

we stayed here one night and it was the perfect place to begin our Tanzania safari adventure. Good location not too far from Kilimanjaro airport, we were tired after our flights and the hotel was very relaxing set in gardens with lots of trees and plants and river. The rooms were fine and the beds really comfortable. We had a... More

Driving through the busy streets of Arusha we did not know what to expect for our first night accommodation in Tanzania. As we pulled off the main road and down the long driveway, we were pleasantly surprised, greeted by a glass of juice a hot flannel. This inn is set in large, beautiful and peaceful gardens with a stream and... More

The best part of our stay was a canoeing trip on Lake Duluti. This was great. This hotel has closed its swimming pool which is a big negative. After a day of hiking or Safari driving a dip in the pool in the evening is a big plus. We also requested 2- 20 minute massages and got charged for two... More

Like others, we were using Rivertrees as a springboard to other activities in Tanzania. It is set in a lovely park where monkeys swing through the trees above you. Hospitable staff and extremely comfortable rooms. Well worth taking the tour of the local coffee plantation, organised through the hotel. A peaceful place, in an attractive and useful location for your... More

Rivertrees was our first experience in Tanzania - a calm oasis away from the dust and bustle of Arusha, and just 30 mins from airport. Staff very friendly and helpful, willing to chat about life in Tanzania, education, politics. French management is very efficient and helpful. Great food and outdoor fires. Good wines, too. Open kitchen with smartly attired staff... More

Was there only one night (the first night we arrived before setting off for our safari holiday). So it was nice. Little cottages type. The lights went out tho and it was hard to take a shower via torchlight. Happens I know but it was the only place throughout our trip we had to do that. There's free wifi in... More

My friend Ricardo and I started our great Tanzanian/Kenyan safari landing in Kilimanjaro airport, from where we were taken to this beautiful oasis of peace, tranquility and impeccable service. The hotel is in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. The gardens are gorgeous and there is a huge amount of wildlife to be seen there. We managed to spot some... More

We were fortunate enough to stay two nights at this wonderful lodge. It was the beginning of our Safari in Tanzania. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary, and the staff went out of their way to make it a special occasion. There were 37 roses in our room, and they made us a special anniversary cake. We enjoyed the... More
