Certificate of Excellence
Once an old coffee estate, Rivertrees is now a charming country inn nestled in abundant foliage with the Usa River flowing by. Set in the foothills of Mt Meru, conveniently close to Kilimanjaro International Airport and a short drive to Arusha, its location proffers a wealth of natural wonders to explore. Comprising the original Farm House, an elegant River House, luxurious River Cottages and several beautifully appointed Garden Rooms, it also serves delicious garden-fresh cuisine in its stunningly set restaurant. The swimming pool and spa are tailored for relaxation, and friendly personalised service ensures a memorable stay, whether for a one-night stopover or much longer.

We stayed just 2 nights at Rivertrees pre and post our Kilimanjaro climb. It was a lovely relaxing way to spend our first night in Tanzania. Cosy spacious rooms, great food and comfortable ambience. And good internet connection!

Excellent location to hang out after an inernational arrival. Good for a wind down before or after a safari or climbing Mt. Meru or Mt. Kilimanjaro experience. Excellent food, friendly staff, great rooms and villas.
