We stayed for 3 nights before beginning our safari. We found the rooms comfortable, clean and stylish. The grounds are beautiful with lush greenery and if you look closely, some entertaining wildlife incuding a pair of owls and colobus monkeys, We especially enjoyed sitting by the firepit at night. This estabishment grows much of their produce on site and their restaurant was reasonably priced. I commend the staff of this hotel for being welcoming and helpful throughout our stay

We stayed in River trees after a long travel before going on a safari. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The restaurant served quality food with a very reasonable price. The lush green surroundings are perfect for unwinding walks. Would stay again.

We arrived at rivertrees after a brutal hike up mount meru and it was just what we needed to relax. A tranquil environment, nestled in nature, we read books by the river and enjoyed the freshly made pizzas. The value for money was excellent compared to all of the other places we looked at - if you want a nice chill place to put your feet up, with all the luxurious you’d expect at a 5* hotel, don’t think twice.

Loved the atmosphere of the whole place, very much recommend a candle light dinner under one of the many big trees of the estate. Shout out to the staff, especially Patric, very kind and excellent service!
