A great place for the final moment of luxury before climbing Kilimanjaro, and a great incentive to know this is what we were coming back to after 6 days of climbing with no facilities! Our group of 14 had the place to ourselves and marvelous dinners in the dining hall in the main house. Be prepared the electricity is intermittent... More

Stopped over for a business trip to Kilimanjaro, really nice place to stay, the food on the night I stayed was served as buffet, the meat was cooked to perfection and the breakfast in the morning was hearty and plenty of it. Would stay again as the staff are friendly and the food was good.

I have stayed at Arusha Safari Lodge a number of time over the last few years and every time I go back it gets better and better. Alex and Rebecca have really turned things around since they took over the management of this beautiful retreat on the outskirts of Arusha. My most recent visit was one of the best so... More

We stayed in Arusha Safari Lodge twice during our trip to Kili. Our choice was based on TripAdvisor reviews, which, unfortunately for us, by some reason,did not reflect the real picture. Important: when you are getting a taxi, make sure, your driver knows exactly where he's going, because the lodge is located a bit outside of town. Once you hear... More

My daughter and I stayed in the Lodge for a couple of days before climbing Mt Kibo and again for 3 days after the climb. It is a really relaxed atmosphere, with limited bungalow style rooms set in a green African oasis. The managers, Rebecca and Alex are very friendly and go out of their way to assist with any... More
