Great overnight stay in Arusha

We stayed here one night before leaving Tanzania, and it was a great place to recharge after a couple of intense safari days.

The hotel was set in a beautiful botanical garden with all sorts of plants and birds, and our room was very comfortable and private. Although it's half the cost of Arusha Coffee Lodge, we had a much more enjoyable time here.

Would highly recommend it!

Rivertrees Country Inn review

Unfortunately we arrived in the dark and the following day was raining heavily before we left for the airport so didn't have much time to explore.

Our room was basic and in need of some repair work. The en-suite bathroom door latch was faulty and the door would not remain closed (not an issue to us but may be to others), however, the hot tap in the shower was a problem as the handle just spun round (old type of design) unless you pressed it in hard. We could not turn the water off at first and the water was dangerously hot.

The grounds are very well laid out and cared for and the two open sided dining rooms are very pleasant to eat in. The staff are very welcoming and attentive.

Rivertrees Country Inn review

Location is convenient between two airports. Furniture in rooms is a bit tired.

Staff was very accommodating. Lots of monkeys to watch.

A relaxing place to stay.

Good overnight stay

Rivertrees worked well for us as a convenient overnight stay upon our arrival in Arusha.

It was comfortable and the staff was helpful. Our room was spacious and attractive. The property is a little worn looking in areas, but fit our needs well.

Ideal Accommodation Near Arusha

Rivertrees Country Inn was our first accommodation upon arriving in Africa. The beautiful, lush grounds were perfect for settling into "Africa time". We especially enjoyed lounging on the deck overlooking the small Usa River. And we thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet pizza served around the campfire. The cottage style garden rooms were comfortably appointed and private.

The location was ideal. Close, but not too close, to Kilimanjaro Airport. Close to, but far enough from the bustle of Arusha. And very close to the Ngongongare Gate, Arusha National Park.

I highly recommend spending a day in Arusha National Park (separate booking), especially upon arriving in Tanzania. Arusha National Park does not have the reputation of its renowned neighbors, but we were pleasantly impressed. The park offers scenic views of Mt Meru, plentiful game viewing opportunities, an enjoyable walking safari, and a chance to observe the black-and-white Colobus monkey.

We stayed at three different facilities near Arusha (Rivertrees, KIA Lodge, and Mt Meru Hotel), two of which were booked through our Kilimanjaro climb guide company. Rivertrees Country Inn was by far our favorite of the three.

Pleasantly relaxing start to safari

It's a beautiful setting at Rivertrees and the grounds are delightful.

Quirky rooms full of character - and a fantastic night's sleep after the long journey! Pleasant food and helpful staff; no pool currently (not that we were wanting this) but work due to start soon apparently.

We enjoyed visiting Arusha National Park (and the canoe experience was fabulous) and would have been happy to spend more than the one night here.

Oasis of tranquility

It was such a relief to arrive in Rivertrees. Spacious rooms, warm running water, very attentive staff. Despite the fact that the pool was closed due to renovation, we enjoyed a quiet afternoon under the trees by the river.

The massage was OK but the towels and sheets used clearly not fresh.

Rivertrees Country Inn review

A nice place in grounds but the overall ambience is a little depressing if the light is not great as the grounds are rather surrounded by tall trees and schrubs.

Staff work hard to look after you.
