    Beautiful environment, very very relaxing. The lady running it is just lovely and the rooms very nice and original. Nestled on hill overlooking a valley with a small waterfall is completely surrounded by nature while being a step away from the bustling Arusha.

    The lodge will provide transport for you. This is how my wife and I arrived. Just let them know with some advance warning so they can plan -- and they will pick you up.
