Rivertrees was the perfect place to start our Tanzania trip. After our long flight from the US, we were so happy to first rest up and adjust to the time difference at Rivertrees before heading to our safari in the Serengeti. We stayed at the River House which was an incredibly spacious and beautifully appointed lodge next to the river. It was very peaceful and secluded, yet at the same time the place has a great sense of community conveyed by the amazing staff. The staff were so friendly and attentive, always going out of their way to make sure we were very comfortable and taken care of. The food was terrific (it's so good that even locals come to the restaurant to eat). One of the highlights of our stay was when they prepared a special private dinner for us. They set a table out on a deck by the river so that we could dine by candlelight under the stars - truly magical! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer, and they even packed us a meal to go when we had to leave for the airport early the next day.
