This lodge is located in the southern suburbs of Arusha. It is a bit of a drive on a bumpy and dusty road but once you get to destination the garden is nice and green and features a beautiful swimming pool. Friendly French manager and wifi available at the reception and dining hall. Most people stay one night, to or...

We stayed there for two nights, fully paid in advance. When we arrived, the manager acted like we didn't have a reservation at all, even though he later admitted that he in fact had a copy of the Jovago reservation, but just had figured that we probably we weren't coming because we arrived later in the evening. When we first...

We stayed in the Safari Lodge after climbing Kilimanjaro and it was a perfect hotel for some rest and relaxation.
