PURE LUXURY IN THE SHADOW OF MOUNT MERU
Lying on the gentling rolling foothills that cascade down from the ever-present Mount Meru is the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. It is here on the outskirts of this town, hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, that you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, a perfect haven for relaxation either before or after any African safari.
Comprising of 30 Plantation Houses, inclusive of 12 Plantation Suites that radiate out into the evergreen coffee fields, Arusha Coffee Lodge has been designed around the original landowner’s home that dates back to the early 1900’s. Much of the original charm and feel remains here at Arusha Coffee Lodge and it is easy to imagine the golden era of this once bustling colonial plantation.
Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions recommend Arusha Coffee Lodge as a first class pre or post Kilimanjaro climb accommodation option, or for those looking to rest and relax after their long haul travel to East Africa, before commencing their safari based itinerary else where in Tanzania.
