Twiga, the Swahili name for giraffe, is more evocative of an English country home than an African lodge. After driving on dirt roads through the outskirts of Arusha, guests enter through gates onto a property of sloping lawns, a grand two-storey Tudor style house and a matching cottage nestled at the bottom of the grounds.
Our view of Twiga Lodge
As soon as we entered Twiga Lodge we felt refreshed and relaxed. Upon meeting the very hospitable Paul and Erika we felt like old friends welcomed home. Combine these feelings with country-style cottage accommodation in a great location and you get what we think is a great pre or post accommodation to any safari in northern Tanzania.
Twiga Lodge has four rooms in the tudor style main house.
