Average time to visit

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.

Insider's View

This is a great spot to relax for a couple of days before or after a safari

Their onsite shop Shanga is worth a look purely because it sells the most unique souvenirs I have seen in Tanzania for quite some time.

Description

Arusha Coffee Lodge lies cradled in the endless verdant acres of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantation, amongst the rolling foothills of Mount Meru. This exclusive, boutique hotel spreads through the grounds around the farm's original plantation house.

The Arusha Coffee Lodge accommodation consists of 18 plantation suites and 12 Plantation rooms spreading into the evergreen coffee fields. The Lodge has been designed around the original estate home as a focal point, itself dating back to the early 1900s.

The main Plantation House, at the center of the property retains a warm and homely atmosphere with log fires in each room to ward off any evening mountain chill. Within the main building are an a la carte restaurant, an intimate bar and a cosy lounge.

The grounds are lush and quiet, lovely to walk through, and the popular garden terrace is a great spot to enjoy afternoon tea.

Arusha Coffee Lodge is the place to relax and rejuvenate before or after a Tanzanian safari. Laze around the swimming pool, enjoy a sundowner at the Safari Bar, unwind after a delicious locally sourced meal in the lounge with a nightcap and a fireside chat, or indulge yourself with massages or treatments at the fabulous spa.

Experiences

    Explore the vast grasslands of the Serengeti with your safari guide on game drives in the early morning and late afternoon. This is one of the most famous national parks in Africa, and it's easy to see why.

  • Search for the migration herds

    One of Africa's most iconic moments - the migration of two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles around the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem.

  • Visit to the Shanga workshop

    Pay a visit to the Shanga workshop in Arusha, a local, socially-conscious, company which employs people with disabilities to create stunning hand-made jewelry and glassware. Admire the beautiful creations while contributing to the local community.

  • Wildlife in the Tarangire

    Tarangire is second only to the Serengeti for the concentration of game. It's an area of big breeding herds of elephant and buffalo. Huge baobabs provide shade for sleeping lion and night drives give the opportunity to see elusive leopard on the prowl.
