General Information

The Lodge is located within 33 acres of mature, well manicured gardens bounded on one side by the tranquil water of the Usa River and on the other by the Animal Sanctuary where their resident animals and birds reside. Mount Meru Game Lodge and Sanctuary was established in 1959. The Lodge was conceived to provide superior accommodation to discerning animal lovers visiting Tanzania.

The Sanctuary was established to provide refuge to orphaned and injured animals and to prepare them for their return to the wild. Animals you will see at the Sanctuary are eland, ostrich, waterbuck, zebra, buffalo, small carnivores such as monitor lizards, small wild cats and an enormous variety of wildlife who come to feed, breed and enjoy the unique freedom offered by the safe environment provided.

The Lodge and the Sanctuary combine to offer a unique experience to all visitors looking to stay in Arusha. Various Presidents of African Countries, celebrities and members of European Royal families have stayed at the lodge. You will find the design and character of the rooms as individualistic as the lodge itself.


Nestled between the peaks of Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru Game Lodge and Sanctuary lies midway between Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha.
