Your trip with Easy Travel includes the cost of one night’s hotel accommodation in Arusha before your climb and one night in Arusha after your climb. If your flight to Tanzania has a duration in excess of 8 hours, we would recommend booking an extra night in Arusha (at extra cost) to let you recover from jet lag before you set off on your climb.
Our favoured hotel in Arusha is the Kibo Palace. If this is fully booked then we use the Arusha Planet Lodge.
Just a 15-minute walk from the centre of Arusha, Kibo Palace Hotel is an Arusha favourite. Its spacious rooms have AC, satellite TV and bathroom with both bath and shower. Its beautiful, landscaped garden is home to a large swimming pool, while guests will also enjoy the spa, sauna, steam bath and fitness facilities. A restaurant with both African and international cuisines overlooks the pool and garden, while a lounge bar provides a full range of drinks, including cocktails.
The popular Planet Lodge is situated 7km away from the bustling centre of Arusha. Balcony views out onto the hotel’s lush gardens are an attractive feature of the spacious bedrooms. Styled with tasteful African touches, they are all non-smoking and equipped with air-conditioning and TV. You can enjoy the cool of the hotel’s outdoor swimming-pool, or simply relax on the sun-loungers – and both indoors and out, there are plenty of places to unwind. Wi-Fi is available in public areas.
When it comes to dining, Planet Lodge can offer a choice of international or local cuisine in its pleasant restaurant. Meals are prepared to order, and staff will encourage you to try our local Tanzanian specialities. Try nyama choma, rice/ugali with fish, banana stew and many others.
