The African Tulip

The African Tulip is an elegant and charming luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of Arusha. The hotel has only 29 rooms, so you are assured of a personalized and warm service.

A safari theme runs through every room, with the use of colourful local fabrics, finely produced craftwork and contemporary Tanzanian art. The hotel assures a comfortable stay with the best British-made mattresses, fine bedding and luxurious bathrooms.

Aside from the spacious and comfortable rooms, The African Tulip also features ‘The Zanzibar’ lounge – a great place to relax and unwind, and ‘The Baobab’ restaurant – built around a large Baobab tree, as the name suggests.

Brilliant hotel. We stayed here as our last stop as we returned from Serengeti. The manager….was brilliant and he ensured we got the best service as we were super tired. Room were great and service impeccable. Definitely brilliant.

The African Tulip is a small boutique hotel with many amenities and incredible customer service. This was my third stay at the hotel. It is consistently pleasant. The rooms are spacious and clean, with just the right amount of African decor, a great shower and tub, and amazing air conditioning both in the rooms and public spaces.
