I had a wonderful time and enjoyed with your meals and accomadation. Thanks Csilla and her family including your helpers. The way you all treated me like my own home. I have spent almost 6 weeks and enjoyed each days with Sri Lankan and Tanzania foods and provided place for my personal studies and officals. Thank You.

A group of us (13) just returned from almost a month in Tanzania, with Safariland Cottages and Adventures as our ‘base’. Csilla and Rehema arranged a safari to Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater, which we did as a group. When we split up into smaller groups and headed out on separate excursions to Zanzibar, Mwanza and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, they arranged internal flights, hotels, cars (drivers) and tour guides. They did an excellent job keeping us all organized.

After each outing we returned to Safariland Cottages, which felt like coming home. The grounds are well landscaped, and the cottages are clean and comfortable. Csilla and her staff provided excellent meals and treated us very well. Of course in a group that size, with assorted itineraries, there were a few ‘glitches’, but Csilla was always just a phone call away and she soon had things sorted out. (She also lent us cell phones to use, which was very nice.)

I would definitely recommend arranging your tours through, and staying at, Safariland Cottages and Adventures, and am hoping to visit again in the future.

Thanks to Csilla and her family.

My wife and my daughter have just stayed for two nights in Safariland Cottages on our Tansania journey. From here we started our safari tour to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti - and we finished it. It is located perfect for those purposes and we very múch enjoyed the hospitality and service of Cszilla. E.g. we could leave our mountain climbing bags there so we had plenty of space in our safari car. Although we were the only guests, she realises a perfect dinner on her own for my wife.

The other evening she brought us to a nice restaurant very close and picked us up when we were finished. No mobile phone ? She lend us hers.

Beautiful garden with lush flowers and plants, cozy atmosphere in the two cottages we rent and excellent price for all that.

She also works as a tour operator, maybe next time we also use this comfort. And she speaks excellent German as she studied in Germany with her husband.

Perfect.

I stayed here for two nights and I like the place. The owner and the staff are great and proffessional. Keep up with the good work. I will dfefinetely go back to this place if I happen to be in Arusha again. They have a nice clean kitchen and they prepare the meals with a great care such that nobody gets sick.

This Cottage made my 1-month experience in Tanzania one of the best ones! Managed by a lovely lady, Mrs. Koka, and her family, this hotel is nothing but another home for all visitors! I recommend it to all people visiting Arusha in particular or coming from the borders of Kenya to Tanzania (passing by Arusha). The gardens are very exotic, making you live the true African experience. Rooms are clean, safe, comfortable, and have the basic things you might need during your stay. It's close to the town and to supermarkets. If I go back again, I would definitely go to Safariland Cottages! Plus: the food is really tasty!

We stayed there after 14 days safari in Kenya and Tanzania. This home like guest house is a surprise. It located in quiet suburb of Arusha. I like its lovely and beautiful garden very much. Rooms are cozy and clean. The lady who run this small guest house, Mrs Csilla, also cooked the delicious dinner and breakfast for us. She even tried to cook the Chinese cuisine for us, how warm-hearted! Another thing to refer is they have two big dogs to guard the house at night. Usually they are chained at daytime, but once the dogs are released for mistake and it did frighten me. Mrs Csilla came to apologise then. Just a small case. Overall I'd like to recommend this hotel to those like to stay in Arusha.

What a cozy place. The 3 of us stayed here after climbing Mt.Kilimanjaro and was great to rest at. The manager Chila made great dinners and made our every need. If you want to her cottages do very professional safaris. We did not go on one but this is what Chila told us. Rooms are a good value and very nice. The cottages are not in walking distance of the main part of Arusha but this might just might be a good thing. Well overall this was a great stay and a great place to relax.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Safariland Cottages, hopefully next time you visit you will have time for a tour; Arusha national park is close enough for a day trip, and we have the shuttle van into town if you want a night out in Arusha town.

We Look forward to seeing you again,
