1. Feels like home: The Simba Farm West-Kilimanjaro

The Simba Lodge Farm is located at an altitude of 1700 meters with a beautiful view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, and the Masai Mountains. The guesthouse was built in 1920 and has retained all its charm. There are only 6 bedrooms and from a cozy living room you can watch the lush countryside. Near the Simba Farm there is a river where many monkeys live. In the late afternoon the owners of the farm will take you to your own safari vehicle, where you can enjoy a spectacular sunset.

2. Led by former street children: Kiboto Lodge

Not far from Arush is the special Kiboto Lodge, consisting of a series of small cottages. The lodge is beautifully situated in the countryside, near a small village. The Lodge is part of the Watato Foundation, run by a Dutch couple and it is run by former street kids, who are now grown up and have a future in the tourism industry. The profits from the Lodge go to the two projects of the Watato Foundation: Child in the Stars and Child in the Sky. You can also visit these projects.

3. In the middle of nature: Camp Green Lake Manyara

Lake Manyara is one of the most beautiful national parks of Tanzania. If you want to enjoy pure nature, you can go to the park itself. There are only two lodgings in Lake Manyara. Green Camp Manyara is one of them. The camp has a beautiful location, right on a river bed and near a waterfall. Birds, monkeys, buffaloes and elephants come here to drink. All these beautiful animals can be seen while you enjoy a cool drink from a safe distance.

4. Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge and Orphanage

A Dutch couple founded the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge. After retirement, George and Marise have jointly leased a piece of land with two hills. On one hill they founded an orphanage, and on the other a lodge. With the income of the lodge they finance the orphanage. So by sleeping at the lodge, you automatically support the orphanage. Every day you can visit the house to play football with the kids or help them with their homework. The lodge itself has a nice swimming pool.
