We recently stayed three nights at Rivertrees - at the beginning and end of our safari. It's absolutely lovely. It's a little oasis. Friendly staff, lovely grounds, beautiful rooms, and lots of monkeys! A great place to visit.

We stayed at this hotel and the food and especially the pizza was amazingly good. The beer was cold, the staff friendly and helpful with "specials on the menu" and just everything.

We had a delicious lunch here. Although the pizzas were delicious the green salad was the pick - with roasted vegetables & a caramelised onion relish. Will just order this next time. The staff let us have a swim and it was most refreshing.

Located between JRO and Arusha, Rivertrees is an excellent place to spend the night either when you arrive in TZ or before you depart. It's quiet, clean, and relaxing. Probably an excellent place for business conferences/meetings, too.

The Rivertrees restaurant specialises in gourmet country cuisine, using old family recipes and ingredients straight from the garden to serve tasty meals that make the most of its scenic surrounds. Dining al fresco under the shade of tall trees, by candlelight next to the fireplace, or with a view over the water on the river deck, each dining experience offers the occasion to enjoy the natural ambiance of its setting.
