Rivertrees Country Inn is situated along the Usa River in the foothills of Mount Meru with views of Mount Kilimanjaro, making it a lovely and picturesque stopover destination. Conveniently located 12 miles from Arusha, it’s a 30-minute transfer from Kilimanjaro Airport or a one-hour transfer from Arusha Airport.

Rivertrees offers comfortable rooms, home-cooked meals, and a tranquil setting where the warm ambiance of the property is a result of friendly service and welcoming hosts. There are 18 Garden Rooms, two River Cottages with gorgeous patios overlooking the Usa River, and Riverhouse, Rivertree’s exclusive-use house with two wings that can be booked altogether or separately. Each of the rooms has a cottage feel with lots of natural wood and stone, and there are plenty of areas to relax outdoors or enjoy the tropical weather while lounging at the pool.

Rivertrees is a good option for beginning or ending your safari or adventure trip, and is a good year-round option while staying in Arusha.
