Rivertrees can accommodate up to 24 guests only, ensuring privacy, personal service and a unique touch from start to finish.  There are 8 self-contained guest rooms located either in the main farm house or within the spacious gardens.  The two River Cottages offer private decks and cozy wood-burning fire places.  Each room is individually styled, and the fresh flowers blooming just outside your window will add to the atmosphere of charm and comfort.

At Rivertrees, the culinary emphasis is on freshness and flavour.  The excellent country cuisine is prepared using herbs, fruits and vegetables grown in the Rivertrees gardens.  Bread is baked fresh on the premises.

Reviews & Testimonials of Rivertrees Country Inn

"A wonderful setting on the river"

The Rivertrees is real 'safari inn', located about half way between Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha itself. I am a repeat visitor and try and stay there whenever opportunity arises while being in Arusha on business. At times I have to stay in town due to meeting schedules but nothing compares with the tranquility of Rivertrees.
Be it the original rooms or the new cottages along the river, they are all well appointed and offer all creature comforts needed to rest body and mind. I in particular love the river cottage where the backdrop of the rushing water mingles with birdsong. Very calming indeed.
Their home cooked food can also be highly recommended, especially the home baked bread for breakfast, or the home made jam.
The limited number of rooms provided the privacy one misses in hotels in Arusha itself.
They normally close after the Easter holidays for about a month for 'spring cleaning' and to carry out renovations, so advance booking confirmations are important, especially the April to June period.

Rivertrees comes highly recommended!

"Restful and comfortable"

We arrived at Rivertrees after flying three days and 2 nights and then an 8 hour bus ride from Nairobi. Upon arrival we were given a welcome drink and shown our room. It was lovely, spacious and cool. Huge bathroom, complete with tub. Comfortable beds, ceiling fan, fresh roses and spotless. The grounds are neatly maintained and inviting, as well as the pool. Dinner was delicious, with a starter of cream of pumpkin soup.

Next morning we strolled the ground on "monkey patrol" and did not have to walk far. Just past our room was a family of vervets playing and eating fruit. Fantastic photos. Our second cup of coffee found us looking across the grounds at yet more monkeys and splendid views.
Totally relaxing and inviting atmosphere. Staff and service were excellent and friendly. We stayed two nights to rest up before safari and we could not have found a nicer place.

We peaked through the coffee table book in the library area and found a picture of a Von Trapp family member who visited a few centuries ago. Rivertrees has been in the same family for generations and the pride shows. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
