We stayed at Aihadi Lodge at the end of of Tanzanian holiday before our road trip back to Nairobi. This little oasis in a residential area of Arusha is lovely. If you are looking for somewhere to lay your head on a comfy pillow in Arusha with great food and real people this is the place you should stop.
As you may have read below about the few problems with water and electricity, but this is Africa, if you are expecting everything to work all the time, you are holidaying on the wrong continent.
This is a wonderful place with clean, comfortable lodges and the staff make you feel very welcome, especially the owner Erica. We wish we had stayed longer than one night, but we will return and spend longer there, because its worth it.
It has a lovely, clean swimming pool that we didn't use but did sit by the side for a spot of lunch.
Well worth a visit.
