Twiga Lodge is a luxury lodge situated in the foothills of mount Meru, Arusha and approximately 40 minutes from Kilimanjaro Airport.
Named after the Swahili name for giraffe, the lodge is built in traditional African style with a thatched roof and is set in 4 acres of landscaped gardens with breathtaking views of Mt Meru.
Perfect for an overnight stay before or after your Tanzania safari, Twiga Lodge is a wonderful 'home from home' run by English couple Paul and Erika who are well travelled within Africa and have made their home in Tanzania.
The 6 rooms at Twiga Lodge are decorated using locally sourced materials and traditional furniture and artifacts designed by local artists. Fresh flowers from the garden fragrance your room and all toiletries and soft towels are provided.
Crisp cotton sheets adorn the bed, complete with mosquito nets. Your en-suite bathroom has a shower and bath, so you can pamper yourself in a luxurious bubble bath after your flight or days activities.
Meals are taken in the dining room or on the beautiful verandah watching the blanket of African stars. Lanterns light the table creating a lovely ambiance, as your taste buds are stimulated whilst listening to the calls of the hyenas from the park.
The staff are all skilled local people, mainly from the village, who take delight in cooking a range of sumptuous freshly prepared meals for your enjoyment. After your meal you can enjoy a cup of locally grown coffee from the nearby plantations or enjoy an African nightcap on the veranda.
