Paradise amidst the coffee plants. Free-standing 2-3 bedroom houses with access to the main lodge. Perfect place to start or end a long safari or to venture forth on short trips. Simple wood furnishing (from then local trees), fine white sheets and mosquito netting. Serviceable kitchen replete with wine and beer. Kind, efficient maids. Laundry service. Lodge provides great food... More

This coffee lodge, with its strong colonial Brittish vibes is a perfect destination for a family breakfast/brunch on the weekend. Situated just outside Arusha in the midst of acres and acres of coffee , it is very tranquil. We come with our kids (2 and 4yrs) more or less every Saturday, enjoying the excellent muesli, juices and sausages. The staff... More

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Tanzania. After the hustle and bustle of Arusha, the wonderful villas, nestled in the Kimemo coffee plantation, were beautifully peaceful. They are wonderfully proportioned and built, and the rooms were all beautifully appointed - and comfortably accommodated our family of six. Despite our late arrival the cafe accommodated our dinner... More

A great place to stay/have a meal. It is a very relaxing place being surrounded by coffee bushes. The lodges are lovely and the people really friendly. The coffee is fantastic. Lovely lunches. Homely atmosphere. Recommended.

Highly recommend spending a morning on a Kimemo coffee tour, followed by lunch. Our table ordered vegetable and meat lasanga and both were delicious! And so were the salads. The coffee tours are very informative and entertaining. This is a family run business making it all the more personable.

Kimemo Lodge is an establishment in the Kisongo area of Arusha. Neighbouring to the TGT complex. You need your own car or a reliable taxi to get there. My meal: The food was fantastic. You can taste the fresh ingredients in their food. Complements to the chef. The atmosphere: If you love the outdoors (like I do), you will love... More

It's a very nice restaurant, lodge, coffee roasters and plantation. Lunch was fresh and very good. If you have time, take the tour, and definitely take a bag of beans home. They were even better at home!

Great choices of food, coffee is fresh and home grown, the Bannisters are awesome people, and the views of Mount Mehru, and the surrounding fields are gorgeous! Well worth the visit - for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or to stay in one of their self catering flats. The lodge is very comfortable, you can sign up for a tour of the... More

Quite a big spread on Sunday for brunch. Handy if you're on the west side/Arusha Airport side of Arusha town. Might need to book, though I just turned up and they found us a table. Its outdoors with acres of grass, so good if you have kids with you, but you do really need your own car to get there
