Located nearby the northern Tanzanian town of Arusha, Moivaro Lodge offers a spacious and comfortable experience among East African fauna and flora. Moivaro Lodge is a good value relaxing option that works well before or after a safari on Tanzania's Northern Circuit.
Guest accommodation consists of 40 spacious thatched brick cottages surrounded by gardens. Each cottage features a fireplace, en-suite bathroom, single or double beds, and a private veranda. The rooms themselves are spacious, and have great views of Mount Meru. A bar and lounge area also overlook the gardens, and there is a communal swimming pool at the main lodge.
There are cultural tours and various walks with which guests can keep themselves busy. A nearby Moivaro village, home to a banana brewery, and the Arusha National Park are just some of the places within trekking distance waiting to be explored. The lodge has 40 Acres of lush gardens to discover, complete with a running track. Guests can also enjoy a massage back at the lodge, which is particularly appealing after a climb up Oldonyo Maas Hill.
Food is served in the lodge restaurant. Using fruits and vegetables from the lodge’s own gardens, the lunch and dinner menu blends continental, international, and African dishes to give a taste of daily life in Tanzania whilst also bringing guests closer to the local people.
Whilst the lodge does have a children’s playground, most of the facilities and activities are not set up with families in mind.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
Level of service, quality of food throughout
