I spent 2 nights the Outpost Lodge last month before and after a safari. The hotel is located in the middle of a busy town but you would never know it as it is very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are well maintained and clean and the staff are very attentive and helpful. There is no wi-fi in the rooms...

We stayed at the Outpost Lodge on 2 different days in June. The staff is friendly but not smothering. The first time we were in A5, a large room with 2 double beds, and a large bathroom too. It was quiet, although my friend did hear some dogs barking at night, it did not keep her up. Unfortunately, despite following...

The name is programme here. Outpost lodge is outside but in walking distance from the city centre of Arusha and offers a beautiful garden and spotless bungalows. The restaurant delivers a bunch of tasty local, Chinese and Indian dishes. Safaris can be organised from here via agents that come to the place to discuss your wishes. Showers are kind of...

We arrived at Kilimanjaro airport after dark, but found a taxi right in front of the airport doors to take us to the Outpost for $50.00. (This seems expensive, but it is a long way into Arusha and really the only option.) Our room was ready and they opened the bar so we could buy a cold beer ($3/each). We...

Upon arrival the staff carried our bags, handed us our keys, and welcomed us into wonderful clean rooms. They will do your laundry for a small cost but you get it back the same day. The cafe and restaurant are great value and the pizza is delicious. After our safari and climbing Kilimanjaro this place was a treat to have...

Very much regret staying in the Outpost Lodge. Extremely noisy at night with crazy barking dogs nearby. Bathrooms very dirty - we had to ask for clean towels. Toiletpot loose on the floor, shower controlled by wheels either producing boiling hot or ice-cold water. Dirty open drain hole in cracked bathroom floor. Not what you want before and after your...

Fisheaglepoint, Owner at Outpost Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to let us know. As we responded to the previous review about the same room, we have been following up on all the issues which you mention. We also must, and do, apologize sincerely. We have closed down the room for immediate refurbishment. Café Mambo is working hard to solve packed meal issues.
