The lodge offers guests 40 clean and comfortable twin, double or triple rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, beds canopied with mosquito net, ceiling fans, fireplaces, sitting areas and writing desks.

  • Each bathroom has a bathtub and shower, flush toilet, wash basin and plenty of hot water.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available in the common areas.
  • A private veranda and lovely walking paths allow you to enjoy a quiet and peaceful setting.

Because the tap water is not drinkable, bottled water is provided.

Mosquitoes are not as abundant at the lodge as it is not close to any water source, but being in Africa, rooms do have occasional insect glitches, and the staff can treat your room with insect spray if needed.

Dining & Entertainment

Your room charge includes a palatable breakfast as standard, as well as coffee and tea.

Lunch, dinner and other beverages are available for an additional charge and are reasonably priced. The produce is grown on the property, and the delicious cheese, pate and jams are homemade.

The meal choices include international cuisine with some authentic African dishes. To give you adequate energy for your day of touring Arusha, you can start off with a filling breakfast that includes “full English” and continental options, such as pastries, cereal, fruit, a buffet of hot dishes, cooked-to-order eggs, just to name a few of the most preferred choices.

One of the favorite lunch-time choices is the starter soup served with bread, and then vegetables with meat curry as the main course. For the multi-course dinner, your meal is served at your table and the plates are laden with food, such as salad, Italian-like pasta and much more, and a delightful chocolate cupcake or other dessert satisfies your sweet tooth for dessert.

The lodge has a swimming pool, children’s play area and massage service, and the two kilometer walking and jogging path around this country-style hotel in Arusha is a beautiful setting for bird watching and exploring.

At sunset, relax in the lounge and watch for small bats around the main building that are beginning nocturnal hunting – quite a spectacular display to witness!


Moivaro Lodge is a cost-effective hotel choice in Northern Tanzania, 45 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport and approximately five miles from downtown Arusha. The property encompasses 40 acres of an operational coffee plantation with incredible gardens, where the guest cottages are situated amidst the lush foliage.

As a daily activity the Lodge can arrange the Moivaro Village Walk. A unique opportunity to see everyday life in Tanzania and make closer contact with the local people.

You can visit a local banana brewery and sample its beer; or hear the story of a local eccentric, and marvel at the tree house the owner fashioned for himself. A walk is typically 2 hours long and can involve a climb up Oldonyo Maas Hill for those looking for a more demanding experience.

Staying at Moivaro Lodge during your holiday in Tanzania means that you have easy access to many of the most popular wilderness areas near the city. From Arusha, a 45-minute drive takes you to Arusha National Park and within 2 hours, you can be at Mt Kilimanjaro National Park or even Tarangire.
