Traveller Reviews

  • The coffee plantation tour was really good. At the end they roast fresh coffee for you (and show you the different shades), which was really fun!

    Cindy Lee, September 2015
  • Arusha Coffee Lodge was perfect, beautiful gardens and very relaxing.

    Suzy Freeman, August 2014
  • The Arusha Coffee Plantation was nice. In some ways, though, after two nights at the crater, we might have preferred to find out way to Selous sooner. I believe the problem was due to schedule the air transfers.

    Tori Bohn, July 2014
  • 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.

    Dianne Gali, May 2013
  • 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’

    George Seltzer, January 2013
  • The trip was AMAZING. We loved Arusha Coffee Lodge was unbelievable beyond words. Tanzania exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

    Molly Rosedale, January 2012
  • 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.
