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

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
