This lodge was not the first choice of our travel agency. However, we found it pretty good, especially with regard to the garden, the dik dik and monkeys that were circulating freely and the very nice lobby and restaurant. Less positive notes regard the status...More
Just came from Arumeru River Lodge. We started and ended our safari there. A beautiful, comfortable place immaculately maintained. A long, bumpy driveway brings you to the lodge. The grounds are beautifully manicured with little dik-diks, gorgeous birds, beautiful butterflies and leopard tortoises roaming the...More

What a great place to start our first ever trip to Africa, and of course, Tanzania. Arumeru Lodge is a wonderfully relaxing compound, and make no mistake, it is a compound, with incredible gardens filled with Dik Diks (don't ask, just go to Tanzania) and...More
Beautiful grounds and a peaceful gate away from the main town's rush.

It ended up feeling like only in house guests were welcomed...More

Hi, there is lots of options in the area - check out local markets, learn something about coffee, you can go horse riding, there is even a golf course close by. Sure that the lodge will help you to organize. Arusha from my point of view isn't that pretty, typical African though!

If you were with a Safari company, they would pick you up and drop you at the lodge. If you're traveling on your own, you'll probably need to find transportation to the lodge from the airport. You might want to ask someone at the airport to help you with this so as to get a reliable driver. It's about a 30 to 45 minute ride, most of it on roads through the woods.
