          This place is a great hotel to relax at before and after your safari (or before or after climbing Kilimanjaro). The staff is fabulous and the pool is refreshing. Very good place to relax at while in Arusha.

          I spent 2 nights at Ilboru between safari and climbing Kilimanjaro. I found it very comfortable, with good food and friendly, helpful staff. Lovely self contained bungalows in lovely grounds. I would recommend it.
