African Photo Safaris

Day One Meet at Airport and Transfer to Arusha March 25th 2019

Idube Photo Safaris Tanzania

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport where you will clear immigration and collect your bags before being met by our Guardian Angel and assisted with your transfer to your hotel, approximately 1-hour drive from the airport.

Arusha Coffee Lodge’s main attraction is its unique and practical location from Arusha airport. The lodge sits quietly amongst acres of coffee trees cradled in the protective shadow of Mount Meru, Africa’s fifth highest mountain.

The coffee estate is one of the largest in Tanzania and the building has been designed to replicate the early 20th century landowners’ home with charming colonial-style chalets. Whilst exuding an atmosphere of time-gone-by, the lodge has a modern take on protecting its environment using local energy resources, materials and employing an eco-friendly waste management system.

The lodge exemplifies the indulgent nature of coffee and tempts guests with cozy log fires and three-course meals served under the stars. Each room is decorated in natural earthy hues that blend in with the view seen from private balconies.

You can embark on an hour-long coffee tour to learn how the beans are grown, harvested and roasted. An onsite crafts village renders purchasing souvenirs hassle-free and safaris from the lodge are also on offer.
