I stayed at the Highview coffee lodge for two nights during my 5 day Safari. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and welcoming. There is an outside area which gives you a view on the Arabica coffee plants they grow just outside the building. I recommend you staying there without any hesitation !!!

Me and my partner stayed here on our 5 day safari with Zara tours and were very impressed! We came during the corona virus pandemic so practically had it to ourselves but the service and measures taken to make us feel safe were excellent! The location is stunning and we got upgraded from a hotel room to an annex for no extra charge and we were delighted with the annex! Very clean and tidy and amazing views from the balcony. Would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed the 2 days at Highview Hotel. Our room was clean, had good bathrooms with clean views of the countryside lots of cool fresh air blowing up to our room. We were able to swim in the afternoon when we returned from our game drive. All the meals were always excellent catering perfectly to our dietary restrictions. I will definitely this hotel recommend to all my friends going on safari.

My husband and I went to Tanzania for our 20th Wedding anniversary, we stayed at several locations but it was Highview Coffee Lodge that stole our hearts. The staff spoiled us silly with attention and care; on our anniversary night they set a special candle lit dinner table for us, a bottle of wine and fresh flowers in our room. The rooms are great and very clean with plenty of hot shower water. The poolside area is awesome for relaxation with tall glass juices. We really enjoyed the personalized treatment that we would have stayed for a whole week if time and budget allowed.

When we arrived at Highview Hotel with our guide from Serengeti pleasant staff welcomed warmly and showed us to our elegant room. The hotel sits on a hill with nice views of surrounding villages. There is a great pool that we enjoyed as staff served us drinks by the poolside. All the meals were nice and very tasty. This is a great place and very reasonably priced.
