Our Villa and the Farmhouse are situated on the outskirts of Arusha and is ideally located for several daytrips within the region.
The Villa itself and the surrounding gardens offer a relaxing atmosphere. You can stroll through the gardens with spectacular views of both Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. Multiple terraces offer plenty of room for reading and dozing off whilst enjoying the African sun. For the warmer days, the swimming pool is there to cool you down! The Farmhouse offers splendid views of the garden and the coffeeplants. Often the blue monkeys will come to visit. From your private veranda you will enjoy them playing in the trees.
In the evening a tasteful three course dinner is served on the veranda and you can enjoy after-dinner-drinks under the stars beside our fireplace. We offer our guests a variety of delicious meals, using mostly locally grown and produced products.
We limit the use of meat due to their high carbon footprint and we do not serve beef nor pork. Instead, we serve chicken and fish as an option, along with an every day varying vegetarian menu. Please let us know if you have any dietary wishes, we are happy to prepare your meals accordingly.
We would like to tell you everything about Arusha, Tanzania, the local community, and the charity projects we are supporting. And, of course, we will share information with you about all of the nice places that you should not miss during your stay at Arusha Villa.
All daytrips can be arranged on site. Examples include; a visit to the local market, a hike (an hour, or a complete day) with a guide in the surroundings, canoeing in Arusha National Park and cycling on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. However, for some trips you will need to give a few days notice beforehand, so please contact us in advance to prevent any disappointments.

Arusha and its environment.
Arusha and its environment
In the vicinity of Arusha, there is plenty to discover. Our villa offers an ideal starting point for a one or multiple day tour to Arusha National Park.
This small but amazing park offers a variety of spectacular landscapes, from the riverbed in the west of the park, to the crater grassland in the south-east, the alkaline lakes in the north-east and Mount Meru in the centre of the park. The park is the home to many animals such as elephants, giraffes, zebras and dik-diks. A large variety of birds can be found here as well. There are many activities within the park such as hiking with a park ranger, horseback riding and canoeing. This combination of activities and nature cannot be found anywhere else and so Arusha National Park and a must-see!
There are many other activities around Arusha. Hiking the vicinity of our villa with a local guide and meeting our neighbours is one of them. You’ll see the small shops where the local people buy their groceries, pass fields where the vegetables are grown and encounter many schoolchildren who would like to practise their English with you. We have identified over 80 bird species in our garden. Lets see how many of them you know!
During the season the area is colored purple because of the jacaranda. Make sure you bring your camera!
A visit to the local market is a true experience. It is hectic, colourful and crowded, very different from the Tanzania you encounter in the parks. We will take you to where the local people eat their ugali (a local dish) and meet each other on a free afternoon for a drink. At the market itself you will see all the local vegetables, fruits, herbs and beans.
In addition to experiencing the wonderful nature around Arusha, you have the opportunity to learn about the projects we support.
The Dutch Foundation Friends of Tanzania funds both Ngorika and Kikatiti Friends of Tanzania.
We are also supporting the de-snaringproject in the Serengeti. This is important, due to the fact that annually an estimate of 80,000 wildebeests are killed by snares.
In the surroundings of Arusha we support more projects, with a focus on animal protection and wildlife conservation,
If you want to support one of these projects, please contact us.
