We started our Tanzania experience here. It was the perfect spot to acclimate to Africa - we loved everything about it. The grounds were beautiful, the rooms comfortable, staff gracious and welcoming. Food was good. Pool freezing but the kids still enjoyed it! The animal...More
Arumeru River Lodge was a nice lodge. The room was clean and the gardens well maintained and full of little animals. Great bed for sleeping. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was great but dinner wasn’t that great. I would stay again.
This was our fifth northern circuit Tanzanian safari, and on each previous occasion we had stayed the first night in a different lodge. Arumeru had proved our favorite -- we'll likely return on our next visit!
The rooms are clean, cozy, and very comfortable, with...More
We stayed here on the first and last night of our safari. On the first night it was almost midnight by the time we got to the lodge due to a delayed flight and the staff of the hotel were waiting for us for dinner...More
Stayed here for our first night in Tanzania. Beds were comfortable, and the grounds and buildings are well maintained. Lots of wildlife wandering around the property. Everything was beautiful and relaxing. Restaurant is reasonably priced and the food is great!

Hi, there is lots of options in the area - check out local markets, learn something about coffee, you can go horse riding, there is even a golf course close by. Sure that the lodge will help you to organize. Arusha from my point of view isn't that pretty, typical African though!

If you were with a Safari company, they would pick you up and drop you at the lodge. If you're traveling on your own, you'll probably need to find transportation to the lodge from the airport. You might want to ask someone at the airport to help you with this so as to get a reliable driver. It's about a 30 to 45 minute ride, most of it on roads through the woods.
