Mt. Meru Game Lodge

The lodge comprises 15 double or twin en-suite bedrooms and 2 suites. The design and character of the rooms are as individualistic as the lodge itself. All rooms have a veranda with comfortable chairs where guests may sit during the late afternoons enjoying the peace of the surroundings, soaking up the unique atmosphere of the Lodge and watching the animal and birdlife. The suites are located in their own private garden and are ideal also for families and small groups to whom privacy is very important. Intimate Places have created a completely new look for their guest bedrooms at Mount Meru Game Lodge to include single, queen and king size four-poster, wrought iron beds with fitted mosquito nets, continental quilts (sheets and blankets are available on request), large and small pillows for reading and sleeping and much more Nestled between the peaks of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary lies midway between Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha. The Lodge is located within 33 acres of mature, well manicured gardens bounded on one side by the tranquil waters of the Usa River and on the other by the Animal Sanctuary where our resident animals and birds reside. This wildlife provides many of our guests with their first exciting game viewing experience. Access to the Lodge and Sanctuary is entirely by tarmac road making the journey to the lodge all the more pleasant for the weary traveler.

Lodge Facilities

The many carefully planned facilities available at the Lodge combine to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience of Africa at its very best.

The Terrace

The Terrace, shaded by enormous old Mango Trees, enjoys magnificent views over mature, carefully tended gardens to the Sanctuary beyond. It makes for an ideal spot for sundowners or just sitting, relaxing and soaking up the unique atmosphere.

The Lounge

The Lounge, with its enormous picture windows and comfortable furniture, provides for complete relaxation in intimate surroundings.

The Bar

The Bar is well stocked with a wide selection of spirits, beers and minerals. These are complemented by a carefully selected collection of fine wines.

Dining Room

The Fine Dining Room provides the perfect setting for a relaxing meal, prepared and served by our attentive yet very discreet staff.

The Gazebo

The Gazebo with its own private Terrace provides the perfect venue for both formal as well as informal events. Perhaps the most popular of these are the sumptuous Traditional English Roast Lunch buffets which are served on Sundays and which are much appreciated by visitors and Arusha residents alike.

Mia's Boutique

The guiding philosophy behind ‘Mia’s Boutique’ is to sell widely sourced, quality goods at very competitive prices. The management of Intimate Places attaches the same degree of importance to the way in which ‘Mia’s Boutique’ is run as they do to the management of all other aspects of the operations of Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary. Consequently, whereas hotel shops are often separate business given out to third parties on rent, Mia’s Boutique is owned and entirely managed by Intimate Places so that we are able to guarantee the highest levels of quality, both in terms of the goods which are offered for sale as well as the professionalism with which our guests are served by our staff.


Broadband internet access employing the very latest 'direct to satellite' technology is available for use by guests. In addition, guests carrying their own laptops can take advantage of our internet 'hotzone' covering the lounge, bar, gazebo and the gardens leading to the Sanctuary.
