Lying on the gently rolling foothills that cascade down from the ever-present Mount Meru is the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. It is here on the outskirts of this town, hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, that you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, a perfect haven for relaxation either before or after any East African safari.

This is the perfect place to start and finish your Safari. We knew we were in for a treat from the moment our driver, Nosorro, met us at the airport. The service is excellent. The plantation suites are gorgeous and it’s a great touch being assigned your own butler who looks everything while you are there. Our Butler, Neema, could not have done more to make our stay amazing. They also ensured it was Neema who welcomed us back when we returned from Safari. The coffee tour provided was really interesting and all of the food was excellent. What we also loved was the Shanga Workshop who make an array of items made from recycled glass by employing disabled people to work alongside glass blowers and weavers etc to learn a trade. All in all a great experience. Having stayed at Elewana properties for our whole Safari it is clear the have an excellent staff culture. Everyone we CW into contact with were clearly genuinely very happy in their jobs. Can not recommend this company highly enough.

We arrived at Arusha Coffee Lodge after a long flight from NYC. WE are spending two nights prior to the start of our safari at this lodge. The lodge is fantastic. Very large rooms that are actually individual cabins set amongst the coffee plantation, each with an outdoor seating area. The staff here is beyond exceptional. To a person their customer service is off the charts. We visited the shops on the property and met Bruno, a manager at one of the shops. In addition to being a big help with our purchases, we had a great conversation with him about the NBA and Premier League Soccer. We will be back to see him tomorrow. We also stopped into the rustic bar next to the Grill Room Restaurant and met Lucy, a great bartender (and our waitress for dinner). She was incredibly friendly and we loved our conversation with her. Definitely make this a pre- or post-safari stop. You won’t be disappointed.

This coffee lodge is a great place to stay and relax after a very long flight. There are a lot of monkeys, beautiful grounds, and very friendly staff. The food was good too. There are coffee bushes around the area. They also have a workshop for people with disabilities to learn a trade and earn a living.

We stayed for 2 nights to adjust to Tanzania time after our long international flight. Overall a very nice property. Rooms very nicely appointed. Outdoor private patio with fireplace was a nice touch. Coffee plants are interesting. Monkeys are in the trees The restaurant food was quite good. The service was a bit spotty - we received the wrong dish one evening at dinner. Food very reasonably priced. Staff is quite friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge for 2 nights before beginning our safari. We wanted to relax and unwind after the long flight from NYC. The staff and service were amazing, and our plantation cottage was perfect. Because we booked two nights we had time to enjoy the pool and get massages at the spa. Many people we spoke to were only there for 1 night so they couldn't enjoy this little slice of heaven. Food was great and the coffee tour should not be missed. My suggestion is book 2 nights before going on your safari.
