What a beautiful property with an abundance of wildlife and it’s own pond. This lodge has an old world Safari feel with modern amenities. In the two days we stayed we saw Vervet Monkees, Colobus Monkees, water Buffalo, many birds and a Zebra donkey. Highly recommend!

Staff was excellent. Very attentive and willing to help. The place is not a 5 star fancy hotel. But it is exceedingly charming and enjoyable to stay at. We loved sitting on our porch and watching the animals in the pond. Beautiful surroundings and very comfortable rooms. Food was very delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodations in this area. You can't beat it for the price.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great day tours. Super basecamp for northern Tanzania safaris. Ostrich, zebras, monkeys, cranes, storks, etc. right on the property. Much better than staying in loud, busy, Arusha. Easy access

It was my second time staying at Mount Meru Game Lodge and I was just as happy the second time. I LOVE this spot and highly recommend a visit and stay here. You won't be disappointed. The animals on property were wonderful and a visit to Usa was super cool. Loved every second!
