Overview of Legendary Lodge

Set on a fragrant working coffee farm among lush tropical gardens on the outskirts of Arusha, Legendary Lodge offers luxurious accommodation that feels like a ‘home from home’. The lodge is a tranquil retreat at which to prepare for or relax from your Tanzanian adventures.

Stays at Legendary Lodge are generally short and the staff generally arrange excursions to Arusha and nearby Arusha National Park and Ngurdoto Crater. Alternatively, guests can wander or cycle through the plantation and gardens, visit the recreation centre and spa in the nearby members’ club to spend some time at the gym, playing tennis or squash, hitting the running track or relaxing in the steam room.

The service is gracious and welcoming, the food sublime, and the atmosphere one of complete calm, making Legendary Lodge a delightful place to spend a few days unwinding before or after your safari.


Make a Positive Impact Through Travel

Legendary loves Tanzania’s people, culture, landscape, and wildlife. They are dedicated to doing their part to ensure all aspects thrive by taking significant proceeds from all of their properties and reinvesting them back into the local indigenous cultures, communities, government and wildlife conservation efforts.

General Facilities

Legendary Lodge consists of ten cottage suites, two family cottages and two family villas, as well as a plethora of shared areas. Decorated in a palate of calm, neutral hues, interspersed with African artefacts and furnished with a mixture of modern and antique pieces, this is a lodge that feels like a home. There are two sitting rooms, where parquet floors and log-burning fireplaces mix easily with comfortable sofas and armchairs. Meals are served in the indoor private dining room, large covered verandah or outdoors under the lapa.

The gardens have extensive lawns and a swimming pool, and the lodge also offers a spa and recreation centre with a full gym, steam room, pool, tennis and squash courts, and running track (currently closed due to COVID-19). And for those who are looking for the perfect souvenirs to take home, the on-site curio shop sells clothing, jewellery and coffee beans.

Legendary Lodge is known for its wonderful and attentive service and tasty, fresh meals. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, meal times are flexible. Wake-up calls are accompanied by a cup of freshly brewed coffee, cappuccino or tea to whet your appetite for the table picnic of fruits, cereals and pastries, followed by traditional breakfast options with a modern twist. Light lunches are followed by a 3-course evening meal with a deliciously varied menu and wines. Meals can be taken in the dining room or under the outdoor lapa, or for a more intimate experience, guests can request to have a private dinner under the trees in the grounds.
