Arumeru is a good, but not exciting lodge, located between the International Airport and Arusha.
The rooms are quite nice, without being anything special. Likewise the grounds, whilst not extensive are pleasant and now well established. The food and service are fine, not the best on our trip, but nevertheless perfectly ok. The River aspect in the title may give a false impression, as there is no river views to be had!
We didn't fall in love with this lodge and would only return if it happened to be included in safari, as our focus will always be getting to the Serengeti!
There are a some Dik- Diks in the grounds and like-wise a few guinea fowl, worth a photo or two.
The Owners do take an active interest in the welfare of their guests, to their credit.
