Superb 9.0 From 12 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
My partner and I spent the first few nights of our holiday at the Vijiji Center. The accommodation, food and staff are absolutely fantastic. We were unfortunate enough to have our safari day trip fail to show up. The staff helped us to try and track the company down and when this proved impossible they rearranged our trips for us. They have even written a letter of support to help us get our money back. If you are looking to stay in Arusha and go on day trips we strongly advise that you organise it all through the Vijiji Centre. There is not a great deal to do in the local area but it is a beautiful surrounding within which to relax after a day out on safari. Thank you so much to Sandra, Amos, Maria and all the staff (plus the dogs 😊) for making our trip so memorable.

Exceptional 10.0
Amazing stay at Vijiji
The hotel is beautiful grounds are beautiful and have a very tropical vibe, complete with tortoises and beautiful birds. The pool is excellent and great for a refreshing dip. The food was amazing! Most importantly, the staff were extremely kind and helpful. It is not exactly central for Arusha, but it is tucked in a quaint village with an amazing fruit & veg market behind it. We stayed for a chill day and night before heading to Kili airport, which is only 45 minutes away.
