We landed at Kilimanjaro airport about 8:30. It is about an hour to Arusha and the Lodge.
Upon arrival we were greeted by staff and directed into the living room area for a cocktail. As we were tired and hungry we opted, instead, for dinner. They prepared a great dinner for the four of us. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the layout is well thought out for convenience and comfort.
In the morning they prepared a good breakfast and we left for the airport wishing we might have had more time there to see the coffee plantation and maybe some of the local points of interest. But we were off for a flight to Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.

Room Tip: The rooms are all conveniently located near the main lodge. There may be a pool but I didn't see...

If you're looking for a pre or post safari stay, in Arusha, THIS IS IT. The accommodations are splendid, small boutique, clean. The food is to die for, the staff wonderfully accommodating and genuinely friendly and welcoming. It's about an hour from Kili Airport, but well worth the short drive. As a travel agent, I've stayed at and booked most of the pre and post safari stays in the past, at most of the different properties, and without hesitation I will continue to use this property if it fits within my guest's budget. It is comparable to many other properties, but you get so much more, it is all inclusive, you have a mini-bar in your room. Want to dine in your room? Not a problem, the staff will accommodate you. Want your laundry done? No problem you'll most likely get it back the same day, weather permitting. Florida, who is the Manager and Russel who is the General Manager will assure you have the most pleasant stay at their property, they don't just check you in and forget you're there. Not at this property. Everything is informal, You're one of the family!

Room Tip: All rooms are the same so location doesn't really matter. If you can't walk distances, then...

Love staying here, from the welcome greeting, the great meals, lovely and comfortable rooms to the sad farewell. Russel and Florida get everything here sport on - and it's incredibly convenient for Arusha Airport.
