We started and ended our safari here, and could not have been more pleased. The managers, Torsten and Marin are personable, charming and very helpful. They wisely insisted that we accept their offer of a light early dinner on the night we flew out, as they pointed out that dinner on the KLM flight would not be served until after...

Great place to start to our holiday in Tanzania. The owners are Germanwhich was great as we were a British/German couple. Not too impressed with the Dutch manager either so totally agree with one of the reviewers. However, the place is very nice and to be recommended. Esp as we organised a safary with Stanley at Arusha National Park. Not...

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Arusha, 2 in late February before a Kili climb, and 2 in early March after our climb. The grounds were lovely, the staff was friendly and the food was adequate. Our first room was clean and nice, as was our second room, but our second room was larger and more modern with...

We stayed at the Arumeru River Lodge 2 nights before our safari and 1 night at the end of our safari. Our room (Bamboo 1) for the first 2 nights was much more spacious and overall much nicer than the room we received on our last night. Some rooms are newer than others, so I'm assuming Bamboo 1 was one...

The room we had was the farthest away from the main rooms. It was hard to find without proper signage, especially at night. It could use some updating a everything was old & worn out. The bathroom was just basic, a couple of lights were burnt out and having 4 extra locks on the door wasn't the most comforting feeling!...

A short drive out of Arusha, nothing to see outside of the lodge. One of only a couple lodges I've been to in Africa that DIDN'T have insects in the room. There is a swimming pool and a souvenir shop. Lots of greenery on the hotel grounds, along with guinea fowl and dikdiks. The chalets are quite roomy and clean,...

Great location - outside Arusha so quiet and safe. The food was great, the staff friendly but they suffered from the country's 'power-outs' (which they can do nothing about) and there was no internet connection. The rooms were lovely.

My husband and I stayed at this lodge for four nights before our safari to get over jet lag. We had originally selected the Rivertrees Inn but there was no availability on one night of our stay so our safari organizer suggested this lodge. This lodge was perfect for our purposes. We spent most of our time sleeping, reading, at...
