The Rivertrees provided just what we were looking for, a nice place to rest up from our long flights from the USA. It is about a 45 minute drive from Kilimanjaro Int'l to the lodge. We were greeted with a cold towel and watermelon juice before being escorted to our room. After a good night's sleep we enjoyed an excellent... More

We slept here for a night after a long flight into JRO. The rooms are clean with high ceilings. You are basically on the river so don't be surprised if there are some creepy crawlies in your room at night. The reception and kitchen staff service deserve a special mention as we arrived a little later than expected but they... More

We spent a short night here after a very long flight. We got there after dark and left in the morning before it got light so I can't speak much about the grounds. But, our cottage room was charming. It had a double bed with mosquito netting covering it from ceiling to floor. We had fresh white roses on the... More

This inn was relatively close to the Kilimanjaro Airport and convenient for the first night after our long flight . We had a separate cottage on the attractive grounds with a four-poster bed covered with mosquito netting. The bathroom had a shower stall and insufficient storage for toiletries, but otherwise functional. There was a separate room with a stone bathtub.... More

We stayed at River Trees at the start of our trip to Tanzania. It was quite a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were clean and quiet with a rustic feeling and the grounds and eating areas were quite pleasant. We also enjoyed the food. I don't think the place had a gym.

De reception was very friendly, our room spacious and nice in a separate cottage with a huge bed with mosquito net (no luxury because mosquito's are around). The grounds are lovely... More

The perfect placd to chill out And get over your jet lag when you arrive Jb Tanzania. Great food, service and setting. They made an extra effort for our honeymoon by putting rise petals all over thd baths and bed. Very sweet. No hesitation in recommending.
