After more than sixteen hours of flight time, we arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport, exhausted and ready to collapse. We were met by our safari guide, who transported us to the Arusha Coffee Lodge for a night of rest. Despite it being late (10:00 PM), we were greeted warmly by a full reception staff, porters to carry our bags and the owner. We were offered fresh juice and the restaurant offered to stay open to serve us dinner. We were too tired and virtually collapsed into bed after a nice hot shower. (Each room has its own "as needed" water heater...so hot water was handy in minutes.) We slept soundly in the luxurious king size bed, wrapped safely in mosquito netting. I did hear buzzing in the night from the little critters...but no bites. The next morning, we had a great full breakfast (bacon, sausages, eggs, pastries, cheese, breads) and our safari briefing and were ready to head out for our nine day safari. After many dusty miles and adventures later....we were pleased to return to the Arusha Coffe Lodge (with a day room) prior to our flight back to the US. Stayed in cabin 16 on the way in and cabin 11 on the way out. Both were identical and so comfortable. Plenty of space, wonderful linens, good hot water, food was quite good and the coffee lodge has everything one could need (gift shop, pool, private porches, beautiful grounds). We will always remember the Coffee Lodge. Perfect start and end to our safari.
