Description: A nice and relaxing place near Lake Manyara National Park where to stop and eat a delicious pizza, cooked in a wood fired oven.
Reviewed April 21, 2014

This place is actually located in the town outside the gate of Lake Manyara National Park, not Arusha (although it's Arusha region). They serve genuine wood fired brick oven pizza and it's EXCELLENT. The bathrooms are very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. You can "take away" or sit at the outdoor seating provided.

It's a small, family owned business that is struggling a bit at the moment for lack of customers which is real shame. If you're passing through or staying at one of the campsites in Mto wa Mbu you should definitely patronize them. You won't be sorry because the pizza is among the best in northern Tanzania.

The owner is lovely and his pizzas are better! options from veggie to meat lovers and other more east-africa style pizza options. the dough is amazing- thin crust and cheesy! Worth a stop on your way to Lake Manyara or Ngorongoro if you're coming from Arusha

Blue Turaco is the best place for a pizza outside of Arusha...great thin crust dishes with excellent toppings. The calzone was great too! Located on the main road to Lake Manyara National Park, its an excellent stop off before or after the park, or for dinner out if you're overnighting in Mutu wa Umbu.

I have already been at the Blue Turaco Pizza Point three times in the last two years and I have always appreciated the good Italian pizza you can eat there...
The place is nice and clean and people are very friendly, so I warmly suggest a stop there.
It is very easy to be found: it is on the way to National Parks, in the village of Mto Wa Mbu, just near Njake petrol station. I was there with my Italian family and also with the children of Malaika who live in Arusha: everybody liked the good quality food that Said can prepare!
