I stayed here a few weeks ago - fantastic place! Not only convenient location near Arusha and very close to a great shopping center - Indian restaurants - grocery store but also owners/managers Csilla (and husband) are so welcoming, helpful and flexible with your stay. Rooms are sparkling clean, natural wood and local fabrics, spacious hot shower, lovely green plants... More

If you want to get away from the bustle of downtown then this is your place. I have stayed here probably 5-6 times while working in Njiro and have been very pleased. Rahema, who runs the place is excellent and makes sure the whole stay in comfortable. I am wrapping up a 1 month stay there right now and am... More

This place is perfect!! I stayed at Safariland Cottages for 3 weeks when I first moved to Arusha and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's a very clean and well maintained place. The breakfast was always delicious and they give you access to a kitchen where you can cook your own meals in the evening. Safariland is located in a very... More

We are so glad that we decided to stay in this place, thanks to Tripadvisor. Such a quaint, quiet place, with a lovely garden and a very friendly dog (though he's supposed to be guarding us). The food is yum and Rehema, who runs this place, is friendly and fun to talk to. Her staff, Jackie and Anna, are also... More

When we (my wife and I) were arranging our lodging for our visit to Tanzania months ago, we were a bit apprehensive about booking 2 nights at Safariland Cottages because it was considerably cheaper than comparable options, but after reading the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor we took a chance and are so happy we did. We found Safariland Cottages to... More

Stayed at the cottages for two weeks on a recent trip to Arusha for trainings. Rehema and staff Jackie, Anna, Mbise could not have been nicer, more welcoming and helpful during our stay.

It was my 4th time in Arusha (1st time as a tourist, next 3 times as a volunteer) and I can’t believe I haven’t stumbled upon this gem earlier. The accommodation itself is just gorgeous. The rooms are a good size, there’s hot water in the showers, large comfortable bed... More

Safariland Cottages is a small family-run bed & breakfast where pride of ownership is paramount. Your every concern is meticulously addressed by Csilla or members of her staff. The lodging is within a secure compound surrounding comfortable ensuite cottages furnished with a single and a bunk bed. In addition to breakfasts, other meals are available upon request and all are... More
