Charming Rivertrees Country Inn, located at the foot of Mount Meru.

Choose Rivertrees Country Inn as your perfect place of transition between safaris into the splendid Serengeti and Mount Meru regions, a place of alluring and extraordinary gardens, charming olde world homestead hospitality and mouth-watering foods.

Find the gorgeous Rivertrees Country Inn just outside Arusha, at the foot of Mount Meru where lush forests and mountain views beckon. Accommodation in the original farmhouse, a river house, river cottages and garden rooms provide ample choice for visitors passing through or who want stay and experience this guest lodge in all its magical offerings. It’s the location of a previous coffee estate in Arusha, where colonial settlers grew coffee and lived the live of extravagance. 

Find Arusha in north eastern Tanzania, the capital of the Arusha Region, set on the slopes of the majestic bulk of Mount Meru, the 5th highest mountain in Africa. Always sunny and mild, Arusha is close to Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Mount Meru in the Arusha National Park. 

As the name implies, Rivertrees sits in a picturesque garden beside a river and guests can sit out on the deck marvelling at the beauty around them as they enjoy excellent garden fresh foods created to perfection. Relax around the deep blue swimming pool and the spa is a necessary retreat from the world where massages and skin therapies sooth soul and body. A one night stop over may just not be enough so make sure of a few days at this delightful country lodge on the edge of a vibrant town. 

Some overseas visitors choose Rivertrees as a place to stay as part of their transit from their flights to the Serengeti. There is always someone to greet you no matter how late you arrive, and your cottage will be welcoming and luxurious with quality linens, décor and vistas.  Home cooked dinners then buffet breakfasts and hot food cooked just how you like it, as you watch. Explore the grounds and find the lovely river walk where you can watch monkeys in the trees and birds flying around. A fantastic place to stay. Spacious rooms can offer extra beds for parties of three guests or families and they offer mosquito nets, hot water showers, vast bathrooms and lavish country décor. 

Honeymoon couples can recharge their batteries at Rivertrees Country Inn before jet-setting off on tours to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Here, romance knows no bounds, in the tree filled gardens, lavish cottages and walks along the river with mountain views. Chill at the swimming pool, enjoy a spa massage and read a book on the deck. Take a free transfer into Arusha to explore the local markets and the one of a kind heritage museum where you can buy blue tanzanite stone.

 Try the unique canoeing safaris at Momela Lakes. Look out for elephant, buffalo, zebra, hippo as well as many species of antelope. You may be lucky to spot regal predators such as leopard and the spotted hyena. Birders can tick off some of the 400 winged species. Explore Arusha’s biodiversity, ranging from acacia scrublands to open savannah and from alpine vegetation to rain forests. Havens for wildlife and magnificent flora! 



Rivetrees Country Inn is in a league of its own tucked away in a quiet area of Arusha town, near the magnificent Arusha National Park, a place of necessary respite between busy safaris in Tanzania.

An old coffee estate still retaining its regal aura, Rivertrees is a wonderful combination of the old colonial style and hospitality, and modern, vibrant décor and amenities. Enjoy the large old homestead rooms and country estate feel in its private position on the property or one of two lavish river cottages and 10 garden rooms. 

The main River House, beautifully located on the river banks, features an astounding thatched roof, two large bedrooms, lounge, wrap around patio, kitchen, bar, fireplace and free Wi-Fi so a self-contained haven for extreme privacy, and complete with its own butler and chef if you need it. The River Cottages sprawl along the river further away, merging into the established garden where monkeys and birds play – enjoy the large private veranda and outside shower with river views. The garden suites are just super, facing the gorgeous garden and offering valuable antique furniture, showers and bathtubs, mosquito nets, comfy beds and free Wi-Fi. 

All rooms make the most of the river and mountain views, looking towards Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, a great start to your Tanzania journey. Enjoy the charming facilities in the spa, the dining room and bar and the atmospheric fire place when the days cool down. Delicious farm cooking, excellent wines, authentic service and ambience all make Rivertrees a worthwhile stopover to explore Arusha and the National Park nearby.
