Arusha Coffee Lodge

On the gently rolling foothills of Mount Meru is the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. It is here on the outskirts of this town, hidden among one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, that you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, a perfect haven for relaxation before or after any African safari.

Arusha Coffee Lodge was designed around the original landowner’s home dating back to the early 1900’s.  The cozy feel of the lodge is by no means accidental as the origins of the homestead continue to emit glimpses of times-gone-by. The friendly and personable staff help create an ambiance that continues to draw appreciation from all those who visit and stay.

Tarangire Treetops

Centered about a Main Lodge — which itself encases a thousand year-old baobab tree — Tarangire Treetops comprises twenty treehouses all of which are elevated off the ground affording views over the tops of the surrounding marula and baobab trees.

Each treehouse boasts one of the largest bedrooms to be found in any camp or lodge in East Africa – with a floor space of 700 square feet – and each with an exotic double shower en suite bathroom. With furnishings that create warmth and demonstrate a commitment to local craftsmanship, the “up-in-the-air” experience is completed by the open-front room design offering views of the Tarangire plains from an expansive but private balcony.

The Manor at Ngorongoro 

With its ten luxurious cottages and magnificent main Manor House, The Manor at Ngorongoro is one of the first safari lodges of its kind to blend East African hospitality with old-world Afro-European architecture and decor. Located adjacent to the famous Ngorongoro conservation area and within a 1500-acre Arabica coffee estate, The Manor is reminiscent of an elegant up-country farm home in the Cape Dutch-style of architecture.

Every detail of The Manor has been designed with its guests’ comfort in mind. Each of the cottages has been carefully positioned to maximize the views of the adjacent verdant hills but at the same time maintain the intimacy of this old-world Manor home. Enjoy watching the sun go down from your private terrace before an evening of sophisticated up–country hospitality in the magnificent main house.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp

Serengeti Pioneer Camp is ideally situated to offer excellent access to the annual migration and the “Big Five” with sweeping views overlooking the Moru Kopjes, Lake Magadi, and the endless plains.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp pays homage to the mobile camps of the 1930’s, a time when an African safari was truly a journey into the unknown.  The tent interiors are designed to evoke the very best of this gone but not forgotten era — but not without the modern comforts of today; each tent has a flushing toilet, vanity basin, and shower.

The camp captures the original essence of the mobile African safari, inspiring nostalgic wonder while unlocking the adventurous spirit within us.  The drama and beauty of the Serengeti is indeed awe inspiring, and there’s no better place from which to view it.
