Once an old coffee farm in the foothills of Mount Meru, Rivertrees Country Inn is a charming country estate nestled in a tranquil forest and garden setting on the banks of the Usa River in northern Tanzania. Located just under an hour’s drive from both Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airports, it is a soothing retreat before or after a safari.
Rivertrees Country Inn looks out towards Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, and is conveniently situated in the heart of northern Tanzania’s popular safari circuit. Depending on how much time you have here, you can explore Arusha National Park on foot or by game-drive vehicle. You can also discover the little-known gem that is Lake Duluti Forest Reserve – its lake is a crater surrounded by lush indigenous forest. Spend an afternoon canoeing over its serene water, soaking in the tremendous birdlife and extraordinary views of Mount Meru.
If you do not feel like leaving the peaceful estate, you can relax next to the swimming pool or enjoy a stroll down the enchanting pathways through the surrounding forest to spot and identify the area’s phenomenal birdlife. Enjoy the Usa River’s natural charm and pause at the many scenic spots along the way.
Authentic cottages are set alongside the river, surrounded by lush lawns and river trees – a magnificent sanctuary for the resident birdlife, as well as colobus and blue monkeys. Rivertrees prides itself on offering splendid service and attention to detail, and providing guests with down-to-earth comfort that invokes a warm sense of feeling at home.
