Twiga lodge is owned by Paul & Erika. They are a couple from the UK that have a passion for Africa and have set up their own self drive safari company called "shawsafaris". You re made to feel very welcome and the lodge is stunning. It has a large garden beautifully planted with trees and shrubs. There is also a self contained guest house for the travelling family or the honey moon couple that want that extra bit of privacy. Its an ideal place to stay for a couple of days before you set off for you own self drive safari in one of their land rovers. The bathroom is equipped with fresh towels, bubble bath, and shampoo. At sundown you can relax on the upper balcony and listen to the night sounds with a glass of wine or a beer from the well stocked cellar. In the day time you can sit on the platform that views out onto arusha park. The animals come right up to the gate. On a clear day Mount Kilimanjaro can be seen, but you will definitely see mount Meru from the house. I would recommend this to anyone travelling to the Arusha area. If you plan to stay there Paul will even pick you up from the airport if you let them know your flight details. We took one of the landrover into Arusha park for my husbands birthday and had a great day in the park, took lots of photos of the animals and had a picnic in the park. Can’t wait to go back there, saving up my pennies now.
