The people here are so nice. The room is comfortable and clean and the price is reasonable. I have been using this place as a base while I travel around Tanzania. I have lived in Arusha and travelled here often. Have not found a better deal.
A group of us stayed at Safariland before and after our journey west to Ngorongoro and beyond. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are attentive and thoughtful. The food (breakfast especially) was amazing. It is within a walk (1.5 miles) to a grocery store, cafe, and cinema. I highly recommend safariland. Wifi was available in a central location where there is cold beer and coffee (but not in the rooms).
This was a lovely place to stay! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous - it feels like you're in your own little jungle in the best way! The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the staff were so friendly and accommodating! Breakfast was included, with flexible meal times which was great. I would definitely recommend staying at Safariland!
The lodge management and girls who work there were so nice and accommodating! They were able to give us different breakfast times and were very sweet. The rooms all have their own bathrooms and the entire lodge looks like it’s surrounded by a lush jungle.
It was like being in a jungle hideaway. The garden surrounding the cottages is beautiful. Very comfortable beds, clean room. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. They went the extra mile to help us. We had excellent breakfast with them with good conversations. I am sure we will come back here. It is not in the city centre, but not far from it either. Very nice, calm rural area.
I spent a whole week at Safariland Cottages for a business trip. I never had such a good experience in Arusha : everything is clean, organized, the food is amazing and - most of all - Rehema and her mother do everything in their control to make you feel at home. I highly recommend this place for business trips, holidays, family trips, etc.
It is just amazing, great service;with a beautiful garden that brings you close to the nature, quiet and restful. I was at work during the day but always felt like am on holidays every single evening.
The first time I stayed in Safariland Cottages was in 2015. Since then my work brought me back to Arusha multiple times. And whenever I am in Arusha, I don't consider any better place for me to stay than Safariland. This is the 2nd review I write for this place (first in 2015), but that one review is not enough after all the times I came back to it since then. Nowadays I recommend the place to all friends and colleagues who are going to Arusha for a while. None of those who took my recommendation regretted it, and even they became frequent guests at Safariland if they travel to Arusha again. That must speak for something. I recently had a long stay in Arusha, so I thought it's time to right another review. What I said earlier "pleasant place, very pleasant people" is still the best summary. One thing I will emphasize however: this is a cottage environment, not a regular hotel. It is a peaceful, comfortable atmosphere with minimum hi-tech. Wifi is available in common areas and arrangements can be made for guests who want constant wifi at their rooms. There is a lounge area with a bar and TV, but the most beautiful thing about this place is the green and serene atmosphere with all the main amenities needed: nice rooms, hot water, nice food and drinks, electricity, accessibility, and friendly service.…
Poor Customer Service. we had to leave the place earlier because of it. The host does not respond to complaints sent on phone. the experience was not as I had expected it to be. the host is rude and treats guests as if she is doing them a favor yet we paid for the service. the amount we paid was not worth it.
Guest relations is poor. Unless you want to spend afew extra dollars on tips and addon's. For their price point I found better accomodation in the area. I would recomend you window shop before you settle here.
