I thought there was some uprising in the city. I later learned this was the church located right next door. I wish I had been...

As part of our OAT Safari, we stayed here before and after, for a total of 3 nights. The meals were tasty and served on the deck over looking the pool area. There is a decent bar and gift shop.

Stayed here 2 nights pre and post Safari. Excellent friendly staff. Great food. Very good prices. Grounds and pool are very well maintained. Rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. Their gift shop has most of the items you might see elsewhere in Tanzania, and at competitive prices.

And, there's...

The Olasti Lodge in Arusha, Tanzania is where OAT travelers begin and end their OAT Safari Serengeti trip. The rooms were very large and comfortable, situated on lovely grounds inside a walled, security guarded compound. We left the compound only when in our safari vehicles, or when with our trip leader. It probably isn't advisable to try to head out...
