Mount Meru Lodge


First established in 1959, Mount Meru Lodge is a family run lodge that lies close to the town of Arusha and Arusha National Park. The lodge has recently seen some extensive renovations that bring a contemporary style to the decor while still retaining the ambiance of an old world lodge.

On arriving there is a warm welcome from the staff and the main reception area has photography from the earlier days as well as a small curio shop filled with locally made curios’. The grounds of the lodge are stunning, lush green lawns with large old trees’ dominate providing welcome shade and a very peaceful environment for relaxation.

The main house of the lodge has a cozy dining area and bar that leads out to a deck that is shaded by more trees’. At the bottom of the grounds is a swimming pool that is very popular with families and their children. Walking around the lodge there are several places where you can stop, sit down and watch the resident wildlife. Buffalo, Zebra, monkeys and many different birds call this home.


The rooms at Mount Meru Lodge are all styled differently. They are all spacious with four poster beds draped with mosquito nets, polished cement floors have various colorful mats and carpets scattered around.We found the rooms to be bright and very welcoming with ample space for an extra bed if necessary. Each room also has it’s own small veranda from which to enjoy the views.

The en-suite bathrooms are also well spaced with toilet, shower and basins. Towels and other amenities are provided.
