Arusha Coffee Lodge

overview

Safari Highlights

In the peaceful outskirts of Arusha, overlooked by the dramatic Mt Meru, lies one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations. Amongst the green bushes bursting with coffee cherries you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, the perfect base from which to start your Tanzania safari.

The bean is, not surprisingly, ever present at Arusha Coffee Lodge. The plantation is filled with coffee bushes and in harvest season, one can see the pickers hard at work. In the evenings, enjoy sundowners or bush dining in the plantation greenery; in the mornings, enjoy the aroma of your freshly brewed coffee as you gaze out at the beautiful gardens. The coffee bean itself is even incorporated into the interior design of certain rooms.

Arusha Coffee Lodge has been designed around the original plantation houses that date back to the early part of the 20th century. The lodge interiors conjure up a colonial feel, decorated as they are with relics of a bygone era. A cozy bar and lounge in the main house has open log fires to banish the cool night air of the northern highlands and the friendly and welcoming staff create a genuine warmth that lasts long after the fire's embers have been extinguished.
