DAY 1&8Arusha, Rivertrees Country Inn
Mount KilimanjaroMount Kilimanjaro

Rivertrees looks out toward Mt. Kilimanjaro and is perfectly situated for exploring the mountain. The inn is a charming country estate that was once an old coffee farm and still retains the nostalgic air of a well loved homestead. Sprawling 10 acres of fertile greenery, the grounds are a natural extension of Mt. Meru’s sloping foothills, and offer a sanctuary for the birds and wildlife indigenous to the area. Elegantly rustic cottages are dotted along the river and in thickets of tall trees, while lush lawns and birdsong make for a peaceful and picturesque setting.
