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.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
