TravelPod Member ReviewsAhadi Lodge Arusha
As would be expected in Arusha, this is not 5 star accommodation.
It is however a small, friendly place to stay - which is just what we like.
We received a very warm welcome from Igor and Patricia both times - despite the state we were in on our return from Kili.
Our room was big enough. The en-suite was very small and it was difficult to shower without the water ending up out in the main room. But it was a good shower with plenty of hot water. There was a second door to an outside lawned area which was nice.
The bed was very comfortable. There were coffee making facilities in the room.
The big plus for Ahadi Lodge is the staff. All very friendly and helpful.
On the night before our climb Igor and Patricia set up a large table on the lawn near the pool and we had a lovely dinner outdoors.
They did the same thing as a celebratory dinner on our return.
They also promised to have urgent washing done for us by the next morning. Unfortunately there was a power failure (as occurs commonly in Arusha), but they stayed up until 3.30am to have everything ready for our early departure the next morning.
Meals were very good. There was wi-fi available in your room, but can be unreliable and a bit slow.
I would happily stay there again.

And it was bumper to bumper on both sides of the road and yet people still seemed to find/make room to overtake several vehicles at a …
We start our final day on the trek with our usual breakfast.

An interesting start to this day - although it really started last night.
We climbed into bed and in the "silence" we could hear a loud "tap, tap."
Turns out the tap for our hand basin was leaking into the cupboard underneath and dripping onto the the timber at the bottom of the acoustically perfect cupboard.

A hyena did walk through during the night... Early morning game drive hippos, water buffalo and more lions. To top it all off a cheater family gathered closely together under a small ...
