Arusha Hotels & Lodges



The Arusha Coffee Lodge has long been held as the place to stay in and around Arusha and, until the arrival of Onsea House, it really was. Today it is still very much up there with great rooms, looking out onto the coffee plantations, superb food and an overall aura of luxury. With its location just on the edge of town it is a very popular stop over for those on the way out to the northern safari parks and, even if you are passing through, can be a great pit stop! As soon as you enter the Arusha Coffee Lodge from the dusty and dry environment of safari or the bustle of downtown Arusha you are struck by the fact that this really is an oasis of calm and relaxation.

The main entrance and communal areas are really well laid out and, regardless of the weather, offer a cozy log fire, or a quiet and picturesque garden in which to relax and eat some of their great menu. The rooms, similarly, are very well appointed featuring baths and private balconies that look out over the surrounding coffee plants. The interiors have been carefully decorated to run with the luxurious and high quality nature of the lodge and, in our view, it is all pulled of very well.


Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa is unlike any other hotel in Tanzania with authentic, bespoke experiences that stir the traveler’s soul while showcasing the breathtaking tranquility of our surroundings. Set among the woodland slopes of Mount Meru at the edge of Lake Duluti, there’s no better destination for soaking in the beauty and magnificence of the Tanzanian “Northern Safari Circuit. “Extraordinary natural beauty, sweeping Lake Duluti and garden views and the ambience of a colonial era coffee farm distinguish Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa as one of Tanzania’s most timeless and tranquil getaways. Each of its 42 meticulously crafted guest rooms has been inspired by its heritage and natural splendor, welcoming guests to experience the romance and simplicity of a 1920s lakeside retreat. Designed in the manner of a stone cottage, all accommodations are clustered around a village square adorned with beautifully tended lawns and extensive gardens. In warm hues of red and crisp shades of white, rooms feature classic country house design touches like tile floors, leaded windows and French doors giving way to garden and lake views. 

Modern amenities like complimentary Internet and flat-screen televisions with cable and satellite channels along with personalized touches like ceiling fans and comfortable robes enhance the guest experience. Each meal at Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa is a creative journey, meticulously crafted to showcase the natural beauty and abundant resources of the surrounding landscape. Fancy starting your morning with an English breakfast by Lake Duluti? Or perhaps sundowner cocktails and snacks in a safari chair by the water? Or a romantic dinner by the restaurant’s blazing wood fireplace? Whichever you choose, we welcome you to savor cuisine and scenery combined in a manner that ensures a dining experience to remember. 


A long cherished dream of Africa enthusiasts came true in September 2004: The former private homes of actor Hardy Krüger and his farm manager, Jim Mallory, are at the center of an extremely comfortable new lodge located at the edge of Arusha National Park. Close to the setting of the legendary movie "HATARI!" and overlooking the world famous Mount Kilimanjaro and its neighboring dormant volcano, Mount Meru. The Lodge is situated at the northern edge of Arusha National Park – the long forgotten secret – in the heart of Tanzania. The park measures approximately 552 square kilometers, combining within its boundaries the vast variety of many other parks in northern Tanzania: crater, lakes, savannah, plains and Africa’s 4th highest mountain! Hatari Lodge, a ‘luxury bush hotel’, consists of three buildings beautifully situated in acacia woodland allowing breathtaking views of the Momella meadow, rich with wildlife and at a close distance the majestic Kilimanjaro. Hatari Lodge offers 9 comfortably furnished rooms, each with an open fireplace and a spacious bathroom. Every room has been lovingly furnished and decorated in a modern retro style, paying tribute to the 60’s and 70’s – the era of ‘Hatari’! For Jörg, Marlies and Donyo Gabriel it is a dream come true – or simply home! By combining their professional background and unique talents, the Gabriel’s have diligently restored Hatari Lodge to its legendary glory.

They have created a unique and sophisticated luxury lodge in which every room has been individually designed and furnished to reflect the distinct style and history of Hatari. In 2004, the Gabriel’s opened the doors of Hatari Lodge, attracting visitors from around the world. Here they have combined the idyllic setting with the rich history of the place and their own ecological awareness to create a unique atmosphere that is sure to enthrall every safari enthusiast. Hatari Lodge consists of 3 buildings beautifully situated within acacia woodland allowing excellent views of the Momella meadow, rich with wildlife, at a close distance the majestic Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. The oldest building serves as a large central living and dining room where you find a comfortable relaxation and dining area. Sitting around the open fireplace, which Krüger and Mallory enjoyed so much, we entertain our guests with inside information on the flora, fauna and history of Arusha National Park. Enjoy the freshly prepared dishes of international modern cuisine which are served here. There is a long bar, which can be accessed from both inside and out, as well as a small, but informative library. The breakfast terrace, bordered by sweet smelling acacias, offers impressive views of Mt. Meru and Kilimanjaro.


Set in Northern Tanzania just outside the bustling safari town of Arusha, Rivertrees looks out toward Mt Kilimanjaro, and is perfectly situated for exploring the abundant nature reserves that this region is home to. The inn is a charming country estate that was once an old coffee farm, and still retains the nostalgic air of a well-loved homestead. Sprawling ten acres of fertile greenery, the grounds are a natural extension of Mt Meru’s sloping foothills, and offer a sanctuary for the birds and wildlife indigenous to the area. Elegantly rustic cottages are dotted along the river and in thickets of tall trees, while lush lawns and birdsong make for a peaceful and picturesque setting. Set in the heart of an area rich in nature reserves, montane forests and vibrant village culture, the scope for exploration is endless. The restaurant concocts tasty meals of garden-fresh ingredients and old family recipes, as well as oven-fired pizzas and the best of the region’s locally grown coffees. Delicious candle-lit dinners are served by the warmth of the fireplace, or under the stars and the watchful eyes of resident owls.

Rivertrees combines unpretentious comfort with subtle accents of style to create a timeless pause in a traveler’s journey, and a sense of warmth and genuine welcome. Because Rivertrees grew in stages, each cottage was designed with individual thought and care, and furnished with unique attention. The inn’s design makes the most of the riverine nooks and bends, and clearings in leafy groves, to grant each dwelling its own sense of privacy and peace. The restaurant makes for a relaxing setting for a book and a coffee, or a garden-fresh meal in the sunshine. Winding pathways weave a lazy loop through the spacious grounds, and reveal a sparkling swimming pool and a massage hut for those that enjoy surrendering to relaxation. For the more active character, Rivertrees also serves as the perfect Launch pad for myriad adventures and explorations of its surrounds. Be it a night or a week, there is plenty to do, or if you prefer – nothing at all.

Leopard, lion, and cheetah have been seen, as well as beautiful genet cats.

This is a level of African wildlife presence unrivaled.
