A lovely start to our Tanzanian safari. We were made most welcome by the staff who were still waiting with towels and a cold drink after midnight when we arrived tired after problems with our connecting flight! Our lodge was very pleasant and the grounds and outdoor sitting area was lovely, especially after dark when the fires are lit. The... More

We stayed in Arusha Safari Lodge for 1 night in May 2015. The property is beautiful. On arrival we informed the manager that we do not eat beef. Also since we were travelling with 2 children we required child friendly food. We were informed that there was only beef for dinner and that the only other option was some pasta.... More

Dear Benagirl83, Thank you for taking the time to post your comment. We apologize for not providing you with the water bottles during your dinner that evening. Indeed, there was miscommunication between the new waiter and the housekeeping person, who manages the bottled water.

This lodge is in a very beautiful setting about 20-30min from city center (largely due to roads and traffic). The rooms are beautiful and spacious and the grounds are lovely.

Dear Woody59, Thank you for taking the time to post your comment. Although our lodge is located only 10 km. outside Arusha, it does feel farther removed from town. The lovely gardens and swimming pool area, offer an ideal setting to relax. The food and ambiance, apart from the impeccable rooms, make Arusha Safari Spa an all-round great option. We... More

On searching for pet friendly accommodation, Arusha Safari Lodge kept coming up. I contacted the lodge manager, and she informed me that they do not accommodate pets. I found her assistance friendly and suggested that she inform Trip advisor etc that pets cannot be accommodated.

1 night at the start & 3 nights at the end of a magical safari. Top notch food & accommodation. The restaurant is excellent but the pizzas in the bar are superb, better than any I had in Rome recently. Highly recommend the Arusha Coffee Lodge, the staff are very friendly too!
