    Amazing staff (Helen was wonderful) beautiful scenery and low key atmosphere. Ilboru is an excellent jumping off point for Kilimanjaro and safari adventures. I will definitely return next time I visit Tanzania.

    This lodge is a great place to stay for a night or longer while in Arusha. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and even offer a lovely terrace outside each room. The pool is great and the food even better.
