Lake Duluti Lodge offers a relaxed beginning or ending to your Tanzanian safari adventure, with plenty of activities at its doorstep.


Location

Lake Duluti Lodge can be found in the suburban outskirts of Arusha Town, and within walking distance of the tranquil Lake Duluti. Spacious grounds and a peaceful atmosphere make this a much-sought-after location away from the hubbub of Arusha, although the town and all its offerings are still easily accessible.

Rooms

The lodge is comprised of 18 luxury chalets, or African ‘kibandas,’ all of which are furnished to a high standard. The chalets are spacious and well detached, and each comes with a private veranda. Each chalet offers all the comforts of modern life without sacrificing the rustic lodge feel. The en-suite bathrooms include a free-standing bath tub and walk-in shower. With the relaxed, earthy tones of the furnishings, each chalet is a truly restful space.

Communal areas

At Lake Duluti Lodge, the communal areas centre around a large and very comfortable main lounge, restaurant, and outdoor swimming pool. Facilities here are not quite as good as comparable properties in Arusha, but the lodge is more than adequate as a relaxed base, especially given the low price and peaceful location.

Activities

The lodge’s proximity to both rural and urban Arusha means there is a diverse range of activities at its doorstep. Outdoor activities include canoe trips over the lake, where you can watch the local birdlife, as well as hiking, jogging and mountain biking in Duluti Forest. Meanwhile, Arusha town’s attractions include shopping and cultural and historical tours.

Altogether, Lake Duluti Lodge is very well priced given the high standard of accommodation on offer, while the generous plot of land it sits on and the sought-after peacefulness of its surroundings make this an ideal lodging for those wanting to explore Arusha.

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.
