My wife and I stayed at Rivertrees Country Inn for 2 nights after arriving from Kilimanjaro airport and before flying on to northern Serengeti from Arusha airport. The accommodation is wonderful, the restaurant excellent and the service first class. We particularly enjoyed the peaceful setting in extensive grounds full of birds and away from the turmoil of Arusha near the...

Rivertrees served as a one night stay over as we transitioned from Kenya and were heading out on safari in Tanzania. The property itself is lovely to walk around. Very lush landscape and entertaining monkeys in the trees. The room was very spacious and beautiful! There were nice touches, such as rose petals thoughfully sprinkled around the room/bathroom. I only...

We stayed at Rivertrees Country Inn at both the beginning and end of our safari vacation. It was a welcomed relief when we arrived, and restful before our departure. Nice, quiet and comfortable. You feel like you are in the country, but are really surrounded by the city. Each cottage looks like something you would find in the Irish countryside;...

I visited this place for just one night. I planned to arrive around 3pm and asked the hotel to arrange a short afternoon safari to Arusha National Park around the corner. They did an excellent job in arranging this. My flight to Arusha got cancelled and instead I flew to another airport but they quickly changed their pickup point while...

This was early July. We arrived at Rivertrees Lodge after about a 30 minute drive from JRO airport. As you enter the property, you realize that you are entering a paradise. We were greeted warmly, and were quickly provided with some chilled fruit juice. Our luggage were put on wooden wheelbarrows and brought to our cottage. Here we were greeted...

We stayed here for 2 nights prior to a 7 night safari. We arrived at 2.00am in the morning, but unfortunately no-one was there to greet us! A quick call was made by the security guard and 10 minutes later we got checked in. The room was very spacious with a double bed and a single bed for our daughter....

We stayed here before and after our Kilimanjaro Climb. It was the perfect welcome to Tanzania. Beautiful lush grounds and a wonderful staff. It is the perfect place to stay after a long flight or a great hike - relaxing and beautiful. We would have loved to stay longer.

This has been a great start to our East Africa adventure. The room, staff and meals were all 5 star. The helpfullness of the husband and wife managers was most appreciated at a difficult time at the start of our holiday. SA airlines misplaced all our luggage.

We came in late from the airport and left before dawn but the time we did spend here was wonderful. The staff was overly accommodating (we arrived late and the held the restaurant open for us). Cottage was beautiful, clean and pretty lux - I was blown away for the price. Beds we're supportive and very comfortable. Food was fantastic....

Stayed here two nights before safari. Idyllic surroundings, very relaxing, food excellent at dinner, breakfast good but bacon etc.. On hot trays not hot. Lodges really pretty, and unusual to have a bath made of concrete. All in all enjoyed myself thoroughly.
