Arrived as party of two where we were cordially greeted by the mangers and briefed about the property, surrounds and meals. The expanse of the well maintained and manicured property was vey impressive, along with the abundance of dik-dik antelope and guinea fowls which roam freely about the lodges and its surrounds. The rooms of our accommodation were spacious and...

Before embarking on our safari trip, the guys at Naipenda safaris (awesome safari company by the way) suggested we spend a night there to take a rest from the long travel. They booked us a 2 story-suite which is outstanding to say the least. The hotel itself is so quite that I spent 2.5 hours reading in the porch only...

Coming on the tail end of my daughter's and my two week adventure in TZ where we ascended Kili during the first week and took in the amazing flora and fauna of three of the country's national parks during the second, we could not have asked for a more beautiful, serene, and inviting place than that of the Arumeru River...

We stayed her on our last night in Tanzania and it was the perfect choice, quiet, beautiful and lovely accommodations. I took the rainforest walk in the morning and got some much needed exercise before the long flight home. Diana and Yannick were so helpful and even made sure we made our flight after we misread the departure time.

We chose this lodge because it was close to the airport and the road to Arusha National Park. I'm glad we did choose this lodge because it turned out to be very nice. We arrived about 11 pm after our flight from Amsterdam. We were offered dinner but turned it down since it was so late. We had decided to...

We stayed here on our first and last night of your Tanzania holiday. We arrived at the Lodge at 4 am and they made us feel very welcome. The proximity to the airport (25mins drive) is what made us choose this lodge. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The food is pretty good. We loved the Dik-diks...

We landed late at the Kilimanjaro airport, and after waiting in various lines for our visa and clearance, we were looking forward to some rest. Arumeru River Lodge is close to the airport, so we were there in short time and able to get a good night's sleep. The grounds of the lodge are beautifully groomed and we enjoyed the...
