Safariland Cottages is a small family-run bed & breakfast where pride of ownership is paramount. Your every concern is meticulously addressed by Csilla or members of her staff. The lodging is within a secure compound surrounding comfortable ensuite cottages furnished with a single and a bunk bed. In addition to breakfasts, other meals are available upon request and all are... More

I couldn't believe that I was in Africa when my airplane landed. For as long as I could remember, I wanted to go to Africa. So, when I planned a volunteer trip through Africa School Assistance Project, I was given the name of Safariland Cottages and Safariland Adventures and the owners planned my entire trip for me, and it was...

I've spent the better part of the last couple of years in living and working in Arusha. I'm not based there anymore but still come regularly on business. Safariland is a new discovery for me, I stayed for the first time last week. I spent 4 nights but left wishing I could stay longer. The facilities are very comfortable and... More

I joined my daughter at Safariland during her volunteer stint in Tanzania. What a wonderful experience. It was like being at home, and Sheila, the owner, takes such good care of everyone. This little place has everything you need and nothing you don't, as they say. Mosquito nets, good showers, comfortable beds, access to kitchen to cook, or ask for... More

I stayed at Safariland Cottages for over 2 months, for academic field research in Tanzania, and I am no stranger to Arusha (second visit for an extended stay of a few months). First, the place itself is beautiful with majestic simplicity and good care (the landscape and the rooms). I left family members and friends in awe when I sent... More

I loved my stay here! They offer short term and longer term stays if you are here working or volunteering. It is very clean and well kept, and you can do laundry if needed. It is cosy and friendly and the family owners and staff are so nice! It is a little outside of town so it is quiet, but... More

The cottages are in a tropical garden, comfortable and clean, run by the owner and her family. Csilla and her daughter, Rehema made us feel being at home. They were organizing our safari as well in a perfect and professional way. GREAT PLACE !

I stayed there for a couple of weeks and both Csilla and Rehama were wonderful. They really made me feel like family. Great location, just a short bus ride to the centre. I preferred this neighbourhood because it is quite safe compared to the others. The cottages are very comfortable and clean. Great hot showers! Miss you guys!

I came to Arusha as a guest of Farm Radio, they organised my stay at Safariland Cottages. But what a great choice they made at that, you are a true guest of the family while staying there. Mama (Csilla) is the most caring motherly figure I've had as a host. Rehema (her daughter) showed us the Arusha night life. And... More

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
