Once an old coffee estate, Rivertrees is now a charming country inn nestled in abundant foliage with the Usa River flowing by. Set in the foothills of Mt Meru, conveniently close to Kilimanjaro International Airport and a short drive to Arusha, its location proffers a wealth of natural wonders to explore. Comprising the original Farm House, an elegant River House, luxurious River Cottages and several beautifully appointed Garden Rooms, it also serves delicious garden-fresh cuisine in its stunningly set restaurant. The swimming pool and spa are tailored for relaxation, and friendly personalised service ensures a memorable stay, whether for a one-night stopover or much longer.

Although we enjoyed our stay there, beware! Two of our group got our credit cards stolen. One had $7,000 in charges at art shops the day after we left and my husband had $27000 in charges at art shops also a day after we left Arusha. Because we had a prepaid trip we did not

Front office was accommodating and assisted me in planning daily excursions.. The guided walking tour of the neighboring village was especially informative. My guide, Sam, lived in this community and my discussions with him were extremely informative. A great way for me to

You could only view the river. I did not see or hear of a trail to walk along.

If the restaurant is closed I am sure they will prepare some sort of boxed item for you on arrival. I would make the request with the tour company who reserved the night for you. I think this is what my situation was on my first visit. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and enjoy your safari. Don’t overpack!

Dear Sunshine557676, We offer full body Swedish massage at a cost of $60. It's a 50 minutes massage followed by a 20minutes soak in our custom fit bathtub. As for the beer it costs Tsh 5000 which is the equivalent of $2.20. Best Wishes, The GM Team.

Only drink and brush teeth from bottled water or from containers that the hotel staff says is safe to drink from. Heavenly lodging near Ngorongoro Crater is Gibbs Farm, Tanzania - surroundings and food are superb, please look them up on the web, it is an experience I could not believe. We traveled with Thomson Safari, so all these lodging and their luxury safari tents were included, we were really pampered.
