We spent our first two nights in Tanzania at Twiga and could not have wished for a better start to our holiday. Paul and Erica made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and their enthusiasm for both Africa and the wildlife was infectious. The lodge is supremely comfortable and Erica served up delicious food - the communal dining... More

We visited Twiga Lodge for the first time last year. Paul Sweet took us on a Safari trip into Arusha National Park (which the property overlooks) and we were smitten, so this year we undertook a self-drive safari organised for us by Erika Sweet. We stayed a few days enjoying the wonderful food and warm hospitality and then took the... More

Paul and Erika Sweet have created a paradise oasis at Twiga Lodge! My husband I and stayed with them for two days before heading out on safari and returned to spend another three days, including a memorable New Year's Eve, with them after our safari.

Erica and Paul greeted four tired Canadians with warm and gracious hospitaiity and long, cool drinks on their spacious veranda, overlooking the lovely garden ,the silence broken only by the night sounds of Tanzania. It was a magical start to an exciting exploration and we all felt well rested and well fed when we set off on safari three days... More

Returned 1 week ago from our two week trip to Tanzania. Twiga Lodge was our first stay for 2 nights in order to recover from the long flight, before heading out with Paul as our guide and driver on safari (Shaw Safari, also owned by Paul and Erika). The safari portion of our trip was put together with the help... More

We spend our first 2 nights of safari at Twiga Lodge. Our tour operator suggested this lodge as our first full day was to be at Arusha National Park. We were so very happy with this suggestion. Beds were so comfortable that I did not even hear the commotion from the dogs and rangers when the elephants made their way... More

I just stayed at Twiga for one night before heading off on safari in northern Tanzania but it was a wonderfully relaxed place to begin my trip. Paul and Erika are lovely hosts who create a super homely atmosphere while giving you time and space to do your own thing. Instead of a family dog the very impressive cockrel will... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in early October 2013 at the start of our time in Tanzania. The Lodge is only 40 minutes drive from Kilimanjaro Airport. We had a warm welcome from owners Paul and Erika. It was a perfect introduction to Tanzania and gave us time to adjust from jetlag. It is home like setting with plenty... More

Excellent Service in an absolutely beautiful location, could not possibly be closer to Arusha national Park--literally a two minute drive to get in. Gorgeous views of Mt. Meru, Erica and Paul are extremely nice and accommodating.
