Following the long flights from London, this lodge was only a short drive from the airport and a great place to relax and unwind for a night before heading off to Tarangire on safari the next day. The lodge was great, food good with very friendly staff, shame we had to leave straight away but it set us up ready...

Great place to stay pre & post Kilimanjaro climb. Staff was extremely attentive, meals were good and it has a lovely "personal feel". Several of the rooms are great for families, with large common/shared space. Electricity can be spotty, but that is true anywhere in this area. - thumbs up!

This is a lovely and quiet venue close to Kilimanjaro Airport . We stayed here to recharge after our long flight before we embarked on safari. Guest accommodations are in spacious bungalows. The open air dining room served delicious food, and the staff was pleasant, efficient and accommodating. A lovely touch are the buckets of fresh cut roses everywhere.

We stayed here one night before leaving Tanzania, and it was a great place to recharge after a couple of intense safari days. The hotel was set in a beautiful botanical garden with all sorts of plants and birds, and our room was very comfortable and private. Although it's half the cost of Arusha Coffee Lodge and twice the ambiance....

Rivertrees is a beautiful oasis set among a lovely tree-shrouded landscape next to the Usa River. The setting provided us for a wonderful 2-night respite after a long journey and before embarking on our safari. The food was delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly. Walking around the grounds was a great introduction to the wonders of this special land...

We stayed here for one night following an afternoon flight into Arusha/Kilimanjairo. It is convenient for the airport (about 30 minute drive) and in peaceful situation with rooms set amongst gardens with a small stream and monkeys and baboons roaming around. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. Unlike other guest reviews, I thought the packed lunch...

This inn is close to Kilimanjaro airport and perfect for our overnight stay prior to travelling to Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro national parks.
