Helpful management and amazing staff. Easy introduction to Tanzania after a long flight and after a safari. Clean and comfy rooms, lots of animals onsite, safe, great food. Stayed here twice. Has an air of aloofness.

We stayed one night at the Arumeru River Lodge and we were very impressed with the size of the chalet and the service. The food was excellent. The grounds with the animals and birds were great. It was an excellent start to our Safari.

We arrived at the Arumeru from Kilimanjaro Airport after an overnight flight from the UK with a connection via Nairobi. The lodges are spacious including a dated though perfectly adequate bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable, and had a mosquito net. We had our first sight of exotic wildlife as a couple of Dik-dik families live on the grounds....

Located in a quiet spot near Mount Meru this place was a great spot to start our Tanzanian safari. The only issue we had was getting up on the first morning to cold showers as the hot water switch hadn't been turned on. The restaurant was good however the menu was nearly identical on the two separate nights we stayed...

Rooms were clean and comfy, the gardens and facilities were well kept. Food was not that great. Overall we felt that, whilst it was nice to have some rest before starting our safari, we could have done getting closer to parks, etc

We travelled to the Arumeru from Kilimanjaro Airport. Its a short drive from the airport which is great after a long overnight journey from the uk. The room was spacious and the bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom is large, if a little dated but perfectly functioning. The lodge is very quiet during the day but we were grateful...

We stayed at Arumeru River Lodge for two nights when we first arrived in Tanzania. It was convenient to the airport, Arusha NP and Arusha town. The rooms were nice and large. The beds were large and relatively comfortable, although the mattress were a little on the hard side for us. The bathrooms were large; the shower offered sufficient hot...

I stayed here for three nights prior to my Kilimanjaro trek. The lodge was amazing: the grounds are beautiful; the rooms are lovely and very comfortable; the food was very good; and the staff was caring and delightful! I only wish I had stayed here after my climb (successful!), too. Daniel took me on a tour of the town -...

We arrived here around lunchtime after a long flight from the UK and stayed in a Junior Suite for our honeymoon. I have to say that the room was fantastic and I couldn't have asked for anything better to relax and recover in.

I stayed at this hotel through Tauck Travel. I had a relatively fine stay here but there were definitely improvements that were needed for the room. There was mildew in the bathroom and the sheets that were on my bed when I arrived had stains on them. Other than those issues, the rooms were spacious. The meals were good, not...

Or, just relax at our large solar heated pool watching the Dikdik antelopes playing in the garden. Get spoiled by our Zansibarioan Chefs with African and international dishes in our Migration's Restaurant and enjoy a drink at the open fire place in our lounge.Our entire team will try their very best to give you a very warm and personal welcome to Tanzania.Karibu!Maren & Torsten(Ownwers & Managers) ... more   less
