Rivertrees Country Inn
At the end of a long tree-lined driveway, halfway between the town of Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport, Rivertrees Country Inn lies on the banks of the Usa River within four hectares of lush, well-tended, tropical gardens. Filled with flame trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus and banana trees, these are a haven for birdlife, and the lodge's rural location adds to its feeling of calm and tranquillity. On a clear day it is possible to see Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro from here.

Rivertrees' location makes it a good place to stay overnight at the beginning or the end of a safari, or to relax for a few days and enjoy the surrounding area. It's a comfortable lodge, often decked out with large zinc buckets of fresh roses (Tanzania is one of the largest exporters of roses to Europe!), and feels rather like visiting a homely country house for the weekend.
