Overview of Meru View Lodge

Close to Arusha, the safari gateway of Tanzania, in the lush, wooded foothills of Mount Meru is the cheerful Meru View Lodge. Its proximity to Kilimanjaro International Airport and the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro makes it an excellent choice for a pre- or post-safari stay, and it’s a popular spot for hikers to bookend a Kilimanjaro trek. If you’re looking for authenticity, convenience, a laid-back atmosphere, and genuine service, Meru View is for you.

Stay in one of the lodge’s comfortable free-standing cottages set in sprawling, lush gardens. With a private patio and en-suite facilities, you can relax and unwind in a brightly decorated space that reflects the vibrancy of Tanzania. The lodge’s inviting lounge area provides a cosy retreat after a day of exploration, and a large outdoor pool offers a refreshing escape from the heat of the African sun.

Arusha has a range of excursions for guests wanting to explore, including bird-watching expeditions in Arusha National Park and Momella Lakes. Canoeing on Lake Duluti sees you gliding across serene waters, home to the Giant Kingfisher and Fish Eagle. A favourite with travellers and locals alike is the Chemka Hot Spring, an idyllic geothermal spring perfect for a relaxing dip.

For a cultural experience, coffee tours showcase Tanzania’s renowned coffee-making process and the chance to taste fresh brews. Whether you’re looking to explore or simply unwind amidst nature in a relaxed setting, Meru View Lodge offers a memorable stay surrounded by Tanzania’s natural wonders.
