We stayed here two different nights shortly after arrival in Tanzania. We were very pleased with the service and hospitality. Exactly what we wanted and needed and an excellent place to stay in transition to our safari.

The A rooms (annex) had no water the morning we left for our hike white the R (residential) rooms did have water; not sure why the difference. The A rooms have individual water heaters in each room. The R units have a central... More

I stayed at the Outpost Lodge before and after a Tanzanian safari. The hotel is set in beautiful, lush and tropical grounds and the accommodation which was part of an old house fits in well. The rooms are spacious and the shower hot which was particularly important after nights spent camping on safari. The hotel was able to cook up... More

Rooms were large clean and basic but with comfy beds after a long safari. 4 star for Africa rating compared to worldwide however it would probably only rate a 2. The shower however in room A7 electrocuted me as it had a fault in the dodgy heating wire attached to the shower head! When we returned from our second camp... More

we stayed here for a night after 8 days safari camping. A really nice oasis. Great service , nice rooms. Our only regret was that we didn't stay for 2 nights. A great place if you are returning from safari and need to stay over in Arusha or before departing on Safari .

With my travel mates we made a direct booking at Outpost Lodge via email. Reception desk was very responsive and accepted our request a few months ahead without even asking for advance payment. They also offered us an airport transfer and were flexible with last minute changes of our arrival time. There was a small misunderstanding of the number of... More

Great place! I stayed in 3 different hotels in Arusha and this lodge was the best address I have been! - The rooms are spacious with TV, van, net and hot shower with good pressure.

Our safari company booked this accommodation for us pre-safari. My partner & I were expecting the company to book something a little bit nicer. The toilet didn't flush properly, the shower area was dirty & the water wouldn't drain away quickly so I was showering in a puddle of water. We immediately reported this to the staff & someone came... More

We arrived to Kilimanjaro airport late at night and only stayed here for one night. Rooms were good, bed was comfortable and had mosquito nets. The bathroom with hot shower was also good, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was ok. The Outpost Lodge was perfect for us to get some sleep, a hot shower and some breakfast... More
