  • 8.0.Very Good

    Mount Meru Game Lodge is a great experience for those wanting a taste of what Africa lodges were like half a century ago, with mostly modern convinces. This is central Africa so don't expect the amenities of Central London, but it was one of the nicer places we stayed. If you like history or staying at old B&Bs this place is perfect. Some of the cottages date back to 1933, and there are old photos of the game reserve everywhere. Very cool. It is set back on private estate from the main road, so there can be a bit of road noise, but we only rarely noticed it. Bonus is paved road access to get there. Overall, staff was friendly, room was comfortable, water was hot, food was continental and made to order or small buffet. Property was intimate in size, but spacious rooms and large property made us feel like we had the place to ourselves. My wife loved it, as it was historic and made her feel like she had stepped back in time - without all the inconveniences of living back then. Very close to JRO airport and very close to Arusha National Park. We did ANP in a half day tour, before our flight it is very different than any other tour we did in TANZ Lush jungles with few predators. Packed the car in the AM with Box Lunch from MMGL and went straight to airport.

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great day tours. Super basecamp for northern Tanzania safaris. Ostrich, zebras, monkeys, cranes, storks, etc. right on the property. Much better than staying in loud, busy, Arusha. Easy access

    Great place to spend some time.

    Out stay at mount meru game lodge was great! The staff is always helpful, the food is great and the animals at the lodge are fun to watch while having breakfast or lunch. The WiFi is good. The staff also put us in contact with a Safari guide which turned out amazing. The lodge itself feels like being in the middle of a jungle, with trees, animals and a small waterfall. In the night, a fire is lit around which we could sit and drink whisky. All in all, memorable stay :)

    Absolutely amazing lodge. Great grounds. Animal watering hole on the property. But most remarkable is personal service. Also offer free and extra cost day tours at the lodge. No need to book before arriving.

    Very accommodating

    We booked here after another local lodge was very unsatisfactory and Mount Game Lodge was very accommodating for the last minute booking and made us a late meal and it was very nice. The service was very good and the facility and wildlife and history of the lodge was fascinating! I definitely recommend a visit here.
