Arusha Coffee Lodge

The perfect place to begin your Tanzania safari adventure

Tanzania is one of the best countries in the world to experience a safari. Whether you are going on your first or fifth safari, looking for that first sighting of the iconic Big Five or searching for the rare African wild dog, Tanzania will offer you something different and exciting to see as you cross the famous plains of the Serengeti or less explored areas such as the Selous National Park.

Often before starting your safari you will require a night in Arusha due to the flights not arriving in time for the start of your safari and there is nowhere better to spend your first night in Tanzania than the Arusha Coffee Lodge, or perhaps you want a night or two to relax afterwards before flying home or on to the stunning beaches of Zanzibar. Located in northern Tanzania, set on the outskirts of Arusha town and within the rolling hills of a coffee plantation is peaceful Arusha Coffee Lodge, this welcoming lodge has just 30 cozy rooms. 

The lodge offers several activities including a 'bean-to-cup' tour of the plantation which shows you every stage of coffee production as well as a visit to Arusha National park or a day trip to the Ngorongoro National Park, while Kilimanjaro is just a couple of hours away.
