The Vijiji Center Lodge & Safari
Ranked #4 of 140 Arusha B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 February 2014

I stayed here with my daughter before and after going on safari. It's hard to find a place to stay in Arusha that has a private outdoor space to enjoy. The grounds are very well kept and secure. The restaurant and bar (separate) have excellent service, the beer is cold and the food is very good.
The rooms are top notch, new, spacious, with mosquito nets and WiFi. Our rooms were on either side of a separate bungalow, we had en-suite bathrooms and they were very clean and comfortable. I enjoyed a great nights sleep and it was nice and quiet.

Reviewed 18 December 2013

Vijiji is a beautiful place to stay, with gorgeous views of nearby Mt. Meru. Only a short drive away from downtown Arusha, the location is both peaceful and convenient. The rooms are minimal but comfortable and the grounds are spacious, with badminton courts, a bar, and plenty of space to relax in the sun at the end of a long day. The staff at Vijiji went above and beyond to make our stay in Tanzania memorable, by guiding us on day trips to town and nearby markets, as well as longer excursions such as climbing Mt. Meru, camping at Lake Chala, and Safaris in Terengire and Serengeti National Parks. Overall, Vijiji provided a wonderful introduction to Tanzanian culture and the hakuna matata lifestyle.
