We moved from the Outpost Lodge to La Jacaranda for our last night in Arusha, as the Outpost was booked out for this night. Despite the cost being similar, the Jacaranda was nothing like the Outpost. Our room was dingy, dark, gloomy and the whole place had a very poor ambiance. It was clean, but pretty basic. The reception area,... More
