A haven for coffee lovers and comfort seekers alike, Arusha Coffee Lodge boasts an enviable location in one of Tanzania’s largest working coffee plantations.


Plan your journey

Location

These comfortable lodgings are situated on the outskirts of Arusha Town. The lodge is set against the foothills of Mount Meru, and despite being positioned close to a main road, is surprisingly quiet.

Rooms

The lodge has 18 rooms and 12 suites, each one spacious, well-equipped and luxurious, with en-suite bathroom and a distinct colonial design. Although, with 30 plantation houses clustered in a small vicinity, this property might not provide the privacy offered by smaller lodges.

Communal Areas

The lodge has a large lounge area, and guests can enjoy a good selection of restaurants serving quality, locally sourced food, as well as superb locally-grown coffee. Aside from its eateries and plantation tours, the facilities on offer at Arusha Coffee Lodge – particularly the small garden terrace and disproportionately small pool size – fall short of those offered by neighbouring properties, and this is unfortunately not reflected in the price.

Activities

What makes Arusha Coffee Lodge special is its informative, hour-long “Coffee Tour.” This tour leads you through the plantation, where you learn about the process from bean to coffee cup, culminating in the most important part – the taste test! Arusha Coffee Lodge guarantees comfortable accommodation, great food and good service, making it a great stop-off point before or after a safari.

DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the 'long rains' in March, April and May.

Tanzania’s proximity to the equator means that its temperatures remain fairly consistent throughout the year. The main variable is altitude, which varies greatly across Tanzania. With the exception of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, daytime temperatures are warm to hot throughout the year. Mornings can be cool, so we always recommend bringing a warm fleece, especially if you intend to visit an inland safari region.

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the ‘short rains’ take place between November and December and are much milder. Exceptions to this are found in the southern and western safari regions, where there is a more continuous wet season from November through to May.

Choosing the best time for a safari in Tanzania ultimately depends on the experience you are seeking. Generally, the Northern Circuit parks (The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara) are good year-round. Tarangire is an exception in the Northern Circuit; along with the Selous and Ruaha (Southern Circuit) and Katavi and Mahale (Western Circuit), Tarangire is generally at its best during the dry season. Saadani is best visited after the wet seasons, when the plains are well watered. Coastal and island destinations are at their best during the dry season, when the weather is sunnier and more consistent.

DRY TO WET SEASON TRANSITION

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain.
