Traveller Reviews

  • Arusha Coffee House - Picked up by Sylvester at the Airport and he accompanied us through Ngorongoro. The Coffee House was fantastic, wonderful accommodations, food and service. The staff, especially the waiters, were a lot of fun.

    Todd Carpenter, October 2013
  • A couple more plane rides and a drive, we arrived at the Plantation. The transportation went by smoothly. The private lodging was gorgeous and felt like a luxurious mini cabin minus the kitchen. The property was well maintained and felt very secluded and relaxing even though we were in the city. They had very good lattes and beverages. The food we had for dinner was ok.

  • Arusha Coffee Plantation. …a very pleasant first night; the huts were spacious, comfortable and attractively furnished with natural wood ambiance. Dinner was excellent, as were breakfast and lunch. A great place to ‘welcome us to Africa’

    Fabulous experience and we felt taken care of from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Not just by our butler Advent, but by everyone we met. I love the fact at all the Elewana properties the managers come introduce themselves. They knew it was my birthday on the 8th and had everyone come out and sing to me and gave me a wonderful birthday cake to enjoy. Clint was able to ask the bartender for a special drink and he was happy to make it for us the second night as well. And Advent was simply fantastic. The right combination of nice, caring, interested but gave us our space. She was just willing to do anything for us but we didn’t feel overwhelmed. She embodies what I think Elewana would want people to think about in terms of service. The coffee tour was more interesting than I thought and is a good, short tour and way to keep your interest. Our visit to the orphanage was amazing. The founder was very nice and we enjoyed having the chance to see sites of Arusha (daunting as they are) and getting to meet such wonderful children and a well run facility. Transfers to and from were great and we only wish we would have been able to stay our last night here. The food was also excellent. World class all around.

  • The trip was AMAZING. We loved Arusha Coffee Lodge was unbelievable beyond words. Tanzania exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

  • From the moment we arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport and were whisked past the queue waiting at passport control I immediately felt we were onto something good. The hotels were all exceptional in their own individual way and to start the trip in the Plantation Suite at the Arusha Coffee Lodge certainly gave us a taster of things to come. An amazing room and a lovely location.

    Anthony Williams, September 2010
  • We liked the housing. Good transition for jet lagged people. The game drive in Arusha was great.

    Julie Greenberg, July 2010
  • All of the campsites and lodges had their own charm, and we thought that the staff in each place were very friendly and helpful to us.

    Kathy Knaggs, January 2010
  • The Arusha Coffee Lodge was a good place to clean up, re-pack, and relax before the flights home.

    John Rosenblum, April 2009
  • Our stay at the Arusha Coffee Lodge was wonderful and I am glad we added the extra day as it gave us a chance to rest and relax and to see the Market Place in Arusha. The accommodations, food, wine and service were great and the setting within the coffee plantation was serene. We tasted some great South African wines throughout our trip. I highly recommend this place for beginning a safari.
