MOUNT MERU GAME LODGE & SANCTUARY
Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary is a special safari lodge near Arusha. The lodge is located in a private concession surrounded by a beautiful, landscaped garden bordering the Usa River. This was once an important animal shelter. Now there is some small game such as zebras, donkeys (and a crossbreed, the Zonky) and ostriches and you can enjoy a variety of birds and monkeys.
The particularly beautifully landscaped garden is full of trees, flowers, and plants, which makes for a relaxed atmosphere. Take a seat on a comfortable bed by the pool and dream away to the sounds of nature. The lodge features a stylish restaurant serving delicious meals and a well-appointed lounge with comfortable sofas and an open fireplace where guests can retire to in the evening.
Mount Meru Game Lodge offers accommodation in bungalows, 15 double rooms and 2 suites, all with a private veranda with an en-suite bathroom and toilet. The stylishly individually decorated rooms feature many colonial details, with the cast-iron four-poster beds fitted with a mosquito net. Located in a separate part of the garden, the spacious suites with a separate lounge are ideal for families with children.
African View Lodge
The African View Lodge, which opened in June 2016, is located at the gates of the Arusha National Park. The reception, restaurant and bungalows are clad in the traditional Mount Meru style with banana leaf ceilings. The views of Mount Meru are breath-taking.
A Tanzanian theme was assigned to each room. There are the bungalows “Lake Tanganyika”, “Massai” and “Kilwa” and of course “Serengeti” and “Kilimanjaro” shouldn’t be missing. Particularly pretty is the “Treehouse”, a fully furnished cosy house tent, which is hidden in a small group of trees and offers a view of the Meru.
The tropical garden with the spacious swimming pool as a central element rounds off the harmonious overall impression. Enjoying the sundowner on the “Meru View Platform” you will have fully arrived in Africa, and you will ask yourself whether you really should go on safari tomorrow …
