    Very pretty, a lot of nature, amazing staff,very good food! I just have a minor regret is to not have coffee and a bottle of water in the room, but otherwise it was incredibly good experience.

    Unseasonable rains made the room damp and smelly, roof leaking through. The sheets weren't fully dry.

    My partner and I spent the first few nights of our holiday at the Vijiji Center. The accommodation, food and staff are absolutely fantastic. We were unfortunate enough to have our safari day trip fail to show up. The staff helped us to try and track the company down and when this proved impossible they rearranged our trips for us. They have even written a letter of support to help us get our money back. If you are looking to stay in Arusha and go on day trips we strongly advise that you organise it all through the Vijiji Centre. There is not a great deal to do in the local area but it is a beautiful surrounding within which to relax after a day out on safari. Thank you so much to Sandra, Amos, Maria and all the staff (plus the dogs 😊) for making our trip so memorable.

    Nice place and settings with pleasant cottages, clean room and bathroom, friendly and helpful staff and good restaurant. Limited breakfast but it's the same all over Tanzania. For some people might be a disadvantage it is a little far from the center of Arusha (15 min. drive) but the feeling you're in the country compensates for that.
