Nicely hidden away, this large property is the best place to get aclimatized to the area before starting the big climb. The hotel staff is very attentive and the bar has decent prices. Food was so-so, but their celebration dinner after the climb was awesome.

Stayed at the Dik Dik while traveling to Tanzania to climb Mt Kilimanjaro and then go on safari nearby. The grounds are well kept and pleasant, the rooms more than adequate, the food good, and the staff friendly and helpful. A nice bonus was monkeys frolicking in the trees outside of our room. The Dik Dik serves as an excellent... More

Stayed here on a family safari trip and it was wonderful. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Our rooms were adorable, and we had our own hammocks right out front. Showers were hot, everything was clean, and the food was great. The grounds are kept immaculate. I would love to go back someday!

The Dik Dik is run and staffed by friendly helpful folks. The food is good. The rooms are named after animals but are all the same inside. The beds are quite hard but the rooms are clean and spacious and the grounds are lovely. There's a minibar with free water and drinks for purchase. Plenty of hot water and pressure... More

We climbed Mt. Kilamanjaro with Nat Geo/Mountain Travel. After a week without bathing and 2 days of descending the Mt, we arrived at the DikDik to stay overnight before departing on the Safari portion of the trip. Needless to say, the hotel - with its comfy beds and hot hot showers - was a welcome respite. Good service, our New... More

The only issue is its distance from Arusha airport. Nevertheless it is the best place to stay after a grueling hike up mount Kilimanjaro. It has a nice pool to unwind. The service is very good. I had to skip the breakfast as I had an early morning flight. But the receptionist was kind enough to prepare a hot black... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that the food in the restaurant comes from the garden of the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food is great and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. They also have a viewing towers which in a good cloud-free day can give you access to nice views of Meru and Kilimanjaro.
