This was a good rest stop after a long flight. It took about thirty minutes to get there from the Kilimanjaro airport. The grounds were beautiful and my husband and I ran loops around the trails in the morning to get our legs moving before going on a safari. (about 3/4 mile per loop). The staff was friendly and the breakfast was very good. The rooms (individual huts) were nice, however, the shower is not one that you step down in and the slow drain caused our room to flood. Perhaps it was just our room?
On our return, we stayed at a place called Ngare Sero (only 5 mins away, but off the main road) and I much prefer this place over Rivertrees. I am not sure the price differential since it was booked through our tour operator. Anyway, Rivertrees is still a great option.
