This was my first trip to Africa, and I was very pleased with our safari and the service from Safariland. As others have mentioned, the cottages are pretty basic (and the showers need a bit more water pressure) but comfortable and quiet. Rahema did a great job arranging out trips and providing transportation to and from the airport. Our guides... More

I just returned from my first trip to Africa. We were based out of Safariland Cottages, and stayed there 3 nights total. Rehema was in charge, and she did a great job. She arranged an excellent safari for us, and then sent us a guide in Zanzibar, which was awesome. I was travelling with 2 of my daughters, 15 and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Safariland Cottages for 1 night in January 2013 after our safari. The cottages are tightly packed but do not seem that way as they are in the midst of a beautiful garden. Our room was very comfortable including complementary water bottles and the shower had hot water which was exactly what we needed after... More

I originally planned to stay only for one night before leaving on safari with one of the local agencies. At the end, we stayed three nights and did our 6 days safari also with Safariland cottages. This place is run by a Hungarian lady and her two adorable daughters and they treat all guests almost like other family members. Cottages... More

Individual cottages in a lush, tropical garden setting and free wi-fi in the dining room. What more could you want? Well to boot you get amazing value for money from a family owned and operated hotel. You get an owner who is also the chef and who can create meals of any kind from traditional East African with Ugali to... More

I know Arusha quite well and I have stayed in several other hotels/lodges/guest houses but I have to say Safariland Cottages was one of the best; I stayed over a month with my girlfriend and we were welcomed as family. The Hungarian lady who owns the place together with her Tanzanian husband is always ready to help and we became... More

I stayed in Tanzania for a month doing non-profit work and had an amazing time at Safariland Cottages. The family and staff are so warm and attentive. I will miss Csilla and everyone very much and plan to return for vacation soon. The food is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone visiting in Tanzania for a long or... More

Safariland Cottages is perfect choice as value for money. They have simple but nice and clean bungalows. The staff is always smiling and willing to help you and Mama Koka will arrange safari, transports, trips or anything you need to help with for you. The guides were also perfect and wiling to answer all your questions about animals, enviroment, people... More

Staying at Safariland is like staying with your favourite relatives. Csilla and Ben Koka and their daughter Rehema treat guests like family. When I first stayed there, I arrived to find an invitation to their daughter's wedding waiting for me! Although they had never met me, they didn't want me to feel left out so they brought me along to... More
