"Great first day safari in Arusha"

Based at Rivertrees Country Inn on 8 Sep 2019
"We were lightly unlucky with the weather on the first morning as it was low cloud, cold and rainy, which wasn't expected! Sadly we weren't able to get a view of Kilimanjaro and visibility for photos wasn't great. The cloud lifted by late morning as we travelled through the park.

Fabulous sightings of many towers of giraffes, elephants, zebra and other mammals, including Colobus monkeys. Good bird spots included the Silver-cheeked Hornbills, Coucals, Sunbirds and Little Bee-Eaters along with lots of water birds.

The picnic location for lunch was stunning, with a view over the park and lakes.

In the afternoon we had a canoe boat trip experience,( trying to avoid potential hippo sightings!). A very peaceful, way to see the many water birds at eye level and to appreciate the location. The boat guys were experienced and good fun, as well as being very knowledgable.

A good first day in Tanzania." Read more about this whole safari

"Safari in Arusha National Park review"

Based at Rivertrees Country Inn on 2 Sep 2019
"See previous page. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity to walk in the bush rather than be driven, and were disappointed that for some reason this had been cut from five hours to two. The ranger and young trainee guide were excellent, and I am sure that a longer walk as planned would have been a very special experience. The afternoon drive was in retrospect a little tame, compared with drives later in the week. This is not a reflection on our driver/guide." Read more about this whole safari

"A good introduction to a 'typical day' on safari.

"Arusha National Park Nomad tour"

Based at Rivertrees Country Inn on 27 Sep 2009
"Excellent. Roland was a knowledge guide. We saw a great many birds, wildlife (the black & white Collobus monkeys are absolutely stunning) and wonderful views of Kilimanjaro!

On hind site, it was a good place to start, as the accommodations and wildlife just kept getting better & better as our trip progressed. The only rescheduling of our trip would be to visit Zanzibar first, then Arusha." Read more about this whole safari
