Rivertrees Country Inn

Arusha, Tanzania

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Rivertrees is secluded on the outskirts of Arusha Town right on the Usa River. The grounds are lovely with a nice pool, bar and common area. The charming rooms and cottages are well maintained. This is a nice place to get some rest and relax a bit before or after your exciting safari. One of Mango's favorite spots in Arusha. 


Rivertrees Country Inn is set in Northern Tanzania just outside the bustling safari town of Arusha, looking out toward Mt Kilimanjaro, Rivertrees is a charming country estate that was once an old coffee farm, and still retains the nostalgic air of a well-loved homestead. Sprawling ten acres of fertile greenery, the grounds are a natural extension of Mt Meru’s sloping foothills, and offer a sanctuary for the birds and wildlife indigenous to the area.

Accommodations consist of 38 cottages and rooms dotted along the Usa River and in thickets of tall trees, while lush lawns and birdsong make for a peaceful and picturesque setting. Because Rivertrees grew in stages, each cottage was designed with individual thought and care, and furnished with unique attention. The inn’s design makes the most of the riverine nooks and bends, and clearings in leafy groves, to grant each dwelling its own sense of privacy and peace.

The restaurant makes for a relaxing setting for a book and a coffee, or a garden-fresh meal in the sunshine. Winding pathways weave a lazy loop through the spacious grounds, and reveal a sparkling swimming pool and a massage hut for those that enjoy surrendering to relaxation.
