"Rivertrees Country Inn review"

1 night Arrived 27 Sep 2022
"This is our second safari with Expert Africa and we stayed at Rivertrees last time. It has proved on both occasions to be a perfect spot to recover from the flights before we set off on the Safari proper.

The grounds are pretty and plenty of opportunity to watch the local monkeys in the trees. Accommodation is comfortable and well appointed. Bar facilities and food are great with a varied menu.

Staff are uniformly good. We couldnt really fault the place. Would certainly use them again should we fly into Kilimanjaro" See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar

"What a fun place to stay "

1 night Arrived 15 Sep 2022
"What a fun place to stay - our last night in Tanzania - lucked out with a happy hour and lots of locals and expats. The food and service were terrific and the rooms very comfortable. Best of all: the three different kinds of monkeys that live on the grounds of the hotel - including a very hungry one that tried to get into our room!!"

"Pleasant place to start"

1 night Arrived 11 Aug 2022
"Half an hour from the international airport, and an hour from Arusha airstrip, this is well-located. A sprawling site, perhaps with too many units now, the pleasant landscaped environment feels a little crowded. This is not a restful, peaceful setting, but more of a buzzing tourist hotel.

Our room was very comfortable, a lovely big bed, and a real treat in a nice deep, warm bath. The room was a little dark and chilly, on a cloudy, overcast, cool day.
The staff were all lovely, and the food at lunchtime and dinner was super, really fresh and tasty, and we dined outside. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, not much of a spread in a buffet, average coffee, and a rather gloomy terrace.

The much-vaunted birding walk by the river was a bit of let-down, with no birds and lots of mosquitoes. Breakfast was, however, made more fun by the cavorting vervet monkeys in the gardens." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania
