Arusha Coffee Lodge (Arusha)

Arusha Coffee Lodge

Arusha Coffee Lodge lies on the gently rolling foothills that cascade down from Mount Meru on the outskirts of the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. The lodge is hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, Burka Coffee Estate. It is also close to Arusha airport and situated along the road leading to Tanzania’s most famous national parks. These include Tarangire, Manyara, and Serengeti National Parks and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This, therefore, makes it the best place to begin and end a safari.

At 1400 meters, Arusha has a cool comfortable climate. Arusha town is also the commercial center for the mining of Tanzanite. This precious stone is only found in Tanzania and is said to be a thousand times rarer than diamonds.

Arusha Coffee Lodge is a delightful sanctuary of aromas, gourmet food, and vibrant gardens. The main area incorporates a restaurant, a café bistro, various boutiques at the Traders Walk, and a spa. In the extensive gardens of the lodge is a swimming pool.

Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its annual 2023 Readers’ Choice Awards. Arusha Coffee Lodge won the #13 spot in the “50 Best Resorts” overall global list. And #3 in Top 15 Resorts in Central & Eastern Africa.
