Arusha Coffee Lodge – An Intimate Luxurious lodge in the heart of Arusha

Nestled amidst coffee plantations, the Arusha Coffee Lodge by Elewana is the perfect luxurious lodge to stay at while in Arusha town. Arusha town is the main starting point for most Tanzanian wildlife safaris and the Arusha Coffee Lodge makes for a perfect base as it is centrally located and easy to connect to Tanzania’s national parks from here.

The stunning lodge situated  on the foothills of Mount Meru features elegantly decorated rooms, spacious main areas and lush lodge gardens that provide the ultimate comfort and relaxation before or after your safari in Tanzania. Occasional visits from vervet monkeys, great delicious meals and coffee tours are just some of the few things that you can enjoy while staying at the lodge.

Arusha town is one of Tanzania’s major cities and is located on the eastern side of the Great Rift Valley. The city is moderately busy with local businesses, shops, locals going about their day, malls and restaurants. Arusha is a great tourist base with visitors connecting from the town to other safari destinations like Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park, Olduvai Gorge, Lake Manyara National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro. The destinations offer visitors to Tanzania a number of activities that include game drives, crater drives, hiking, and chances to experience the famous Great Migration, a true African safari spectacle.
