Arusha Coffee Lodge

Arusha, Tanzania

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Arusha Coffee Lodge offers stylish coffee plantation style accommodations, close by to Arusha Regional Airport for a quick safari flight. This makes for a nice option for the start or end of your safari in Tanzania. While you can feel the size of the lodge at mealtimes, the food and drinks are plentiful.

This is a working coffee farm, so the privacy can be a bit limited with workers on the grounds. 

 

Lying on the gently 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 East African safari.

Comprising of 30 Plantation Houses 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. The homely feel of the Lodge is by no means accidental as the origins of the homestead continue to emit glimpses of times-gone-by. The friendly and personable staff help create an ambiance that continues to draw appreciation from all those who visit and stay. Within the main Plantation House reside an ‘a la carte’ restaurant, an intimate cafe bistro and a cozy lounge, all of which have inviting open log fires to warm you from the cool night air. 

During your stay, be sure to carve out some time to visit Shanga Program. This is a recent addition to the LDoge, but fast becoming an instituon in Arusha. This program provides work and creative opportunities for local people with disabilities. They create some amazing art and crafts using recycled elements, perfect for a little shopping spree.
