This lodge is a little out of the way and is adjacent to a church with loud speakers broadcasting sermons. The grounds are pleasant. The food reasonably good. The rooms are neat and clean. It is very serviceable.

This lodge has been here for quite a few years, and is frequently used as a starting point for group tours/safaris. We were here as part of an Overseas Adventure Travel safari trip in July 2014. The rooms are fine, the service pretty good, and the grounds are beautiful! The food service is typical - basically good, with lots of...

The Olasiti Lodge is situation in a compound on the outskirts of Arusha, Tanzania. My first impressions of this place were positive. Nice grounds, large, clean rooms, and main lodge which includes a bar, restaurant and huge lobby area. They also have decent wifi for a $10 charge. The facility also has a nice swimming pool but I did not...

A great mid range, well priced lodge, with attentive staff, good service, comfortable, clean rooms, good shower, lush and lovely gardens. Ideal for a well deserved rest and Arusha overnight for birders and budget travellers. I really enjoyed the bed endowed with a mosquito net, clean perfumed sheets, great pillow and the perfect matress hardness for me…had a great sleep....

With its pool and garden setting, the lodge is only 10 steps from a heavy dose of local life. A huge non-denominational gospel church with loud speakers is next door,but begins at 6 a.m. some mornings. To venture in is an amazing experience especially when the cross is borne thru the hall.A few steps from the church is a teeming...

Arrived early Sat afternoon to hear raucous noise from next door (sounded like football riot). We were told it was a church service - on a Saturday? Noise did not abate the entire time we were there. Took us to rooms out the back - 2nd floor, room covered in dust, bathrooms had chipped/cracked/missing tiles, heat was unbearable but no...

The property itself is very pretty, rooms lack some basic amenities, no where to put toiletries in bathroom, no outlets in some room for hairdryer, so bring extension cord. One of the first rooms we stayed in was unacceptable, towels damp. sheets stained and pillow lumpy. Just not clean. Second room 9, next to the church where the music goes...

We stayed in this delightful setting in December as part of a group. The staff was professional, friendly and accommodating. The pool was beautiful although nearly freezing by comparison to the tropical heat. Monkeys play next to the pool and they are wonderful to watch. Here's the rub - there is a megachurch next door that begins broadcasting loudly through...

A very lovely lodge in a tranquil setting, It is hard to believe that just outside the gates there are drivers careening around corners and driving like there is no tomorrow! The welcome was warm and genuine and our accommodations large, airy with a netted king sized bed. We walk down a path through Acacia trees, spotting a beautiful swimming...

My wife and I were on an OAT trip to Tanzania. We arrived 2 days before our Safari trip began. I made my own reservations with Kibo Guides, the owners of Olasiti Lodge. Every thing went very smooth, they met us at Kilimanjaro Airport and drove us to Olasiti Lodge. We ate 3 meals a day at the lodge, and...
