Arusha – Arrive in Arusha
As your plane descends over the city of Arusha – ‘A’ to locals – you will finally be sure that you are not at home anymore. Looking out the window, the peak of Africa’s fifth highest mountain, Mount Meru, will poke through the clouds, signaling the final leg of your journey. Upon clearing customs and collecting your bags in Kilimanjaro International Airport, a representative will meet you in the arrivals hall. From here, we will drive you straight to your lodge tucked away at the foot of Mount Meru amidst a sea of coffee trees.
This lodge is a converted colonial property, which pays homage to the homestead’s roots through its décor. Friendly and warm, the lodge has created an ambiance perfect for relaxation after days of long travel. You may choose to spend the afternoon wandering through the gardens, lazing beside the swimming pool or reading in front of your suite’s wood-burning fireplace. Energetic guests may have time to partake on a two-hour guided walk around the coffee plantation itself, learning about the growing, harvesting and roasting process. However you choose to spend the day, enjoy it – since adventure awaits tomorrow!
