Tanzania

Rivertrees Country Inn

PLAN MY TRIP

Situated on the fertile slopes of Mt. Meru, Rivertrees Country Inn is a former coffee farm turned charming country estate just outside Arusha with a rich and lively past.

Accommodations at the inn consist of twenty-four unique rooms. The Garden Rooms are beautifully furnished with red-tiled floors and comfortable four-poster beds draped in mosquito netting. The en suite bathrooms have either a shower or tub. They each have a private, shaded veranda overlooking the lush gardens. There are some adjoining rooms for families. The Farm House contains four en-suite rooms, each with its own entrance, perfect for families or groups of up to ten, with plenty of space for lounging on its vast veranda or curling up in front of the fireplace. The River Cottage includes two spacious cottages with a terrace opening onto the forest and outdoor rain showers. While the River House has two ample bedrooms and a lavish living room that can comfortably host a group of four and includes a wrap-around veranda.

The inn encompasses ten acres of fertile greenery. The grounds which proved too acidic to be good for coffee growing are a natural extension of Mt Meru’s sloping foothills, and offer a sanctuary for the birds and wildlife indigenous to the area. It is a great base for exploring Northern Tanzania’s wealth of national parks and natural wonders. The property itself lies on the banks of the Usa River under a canopy of flame trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus and banana trees. Once a family farm, the inn’s storied past has played host to two German presidents, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, Jane Goodall, and several other notable visitors.

There are many exciting activities to choose from at the inn. A tour of the Aranga Coffee Group will perk everyone up with a three-hour tour through Nkoaranga Village to the Group’s nursery, where one of the local farmers demonstrates the process of growing, picking and drying the berries. A full-game drive to Arusha National Park takes in the beauty and wildlife so close by. Or a day trip to Lake Manyara, one of East Africa’s spectacular soda lakes, created by the tectonic activity of the Great Rift Valley is great day trip. Tarangire National Park is a mere three-hour drive from Rivertrees, and offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a day’s safari in one of Tanzania’s richest reserves. For some watery adventure, try a canoe trip on Lake Duluti with stunning views of Mt Meru, as well as a wealth of birdlife. A two-hour mountain bike ride on the slopes of Mt Meru provide spectacular views as well as some cardio.

The Rivertrees restaurant specializes in delicious, home-cooked meals using local ingredient some of which are picked straight from the inn’s own garden and include the popular pizzas from the wood burning ovens. Meals can be eaten out in the gardens under tall shady trees, overlooking the waters winding beneath the river deck, by the warm fireside indoors, or even in the beautifully atmospheric old Farm House.
