Perfect For

Families, Couples & Honeymooners

Rivertrees lies on the banks of Tanzania’s Usa River within ten hectares of lush tropical gardens filled with flame trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus and banana trees, plenty of birdlife and even the black and white colobus monkeys have found it the perfect home too. On a clear day it is possible to see both Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro from here.

Located on the outskirts of Arusha, the Rivertrees Country Inn benefits from good accessibility to Kilimanjaro Airport. Arusha town and National Park. It offers a tranquil and green space to rest and relax after a long flight before heading out to your safari.

 If time and energy allow, there is much to be explored around the area. The foothills of Mt Meru and its crater lake, Lake Duluti, sit 15 minutes away and beautiful, authentic villages surround the lodge offering insights into local life.

Rivertrees grew in stages so there are different cottages and room types to choose from, all with river or garden views. The old farmhouse has been restored and converted into a main lounge, with a few separate seating areas. It has a large fireplace and classic wooden parquet flooring and antique furniture. Afternoon tea is served here, and you can find a selection of books, magazines and board games. There are two separate dining areas, and it also a popular place for locals to eat.

The hotel

Rivertrees has 38 rooms, all of which are en-suite and have fans and mosquito nets. They are located either in the River House, the River Cottage, the Farm House or the standard garden rooms: the 30 standard garden rooms form the bulk of the accommodation, with each small cottage housing two separate rooms, two of which offering interconnecting rooms, making these a great option for families.

Each room has red polished concrete floors dotted with traditional grass mats, a ceiling fan, four-poster bed with mosquito nets, a writing desk and chair, a day bed, and a wardrobe. There is no air-conditioning but due to the solid build it should be cool even when outside temperatures are high. Complimentary toiletries are provided. Outside each room is a small, covered veranda.

The cottages are located on the bank of the river and quite a bit larger than the standard rooms. They also have a fireplace, and an outdoor shower. The River house is great for couples travelling together, as it has two separate double-bedrooms.

Rivertrees is a lovely place to relax with the tree-lined gardens and a large swimming pool. It has also two dining areas and a rustic bar


mmon areas include the main lounge with a fire place, books, magazines, board games and small TV area. The two dining areas and the bar are in a separate building, as well as a pizza oven and barbecue. Exotic gardens lead to a river, with a large pool and small massage room.


Rivertrees offers great home-cooked food with vegetables, herbs and fruit sourced form their gardens. They offer breakfast and a four or five-course dinner featuring international style food with African influence, as well as a flexible á la carte lunch.
