General Information

Located just outside the bustling safari town of Arusha, Rivertrees Lodge looks out toward Mt Kilimanjaro. Rivertrees is a cosy country estate and farm set amongst lush and extensive gardens.  From Rivertrees you can enjoy views towards Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro. Until recently the property was home to Martina Gehrken Trappe, whose immediate family are widely known from “The Sound of Music” and, although she no longer personally manages the property, her influence remains in the homely decor, country kitchen and various subtle aristocratic touches.

Combining old world ambiance, African country elegance, delicious farm cuisine, personal service and a genuine warmth from your hosts. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere abound. The rooms are spread throughout the property and each of them have their own individual character. Rooms are furnished with beautiful wooden beds, private entrance and a work desk. The main building and restaurant is a beautifully restored original farmhouse.


Rivertrees Country in is located in the outskirts of Arusha, Tanzania.
