Arrive in time for a farewell lunch with your safari companions and the opportunity to shop, swim or repack before you are escorted to the airport this evening. Proceed to your next destination or fly back home and arrive back home to the bustle of modern life in the afternoon tomorrow.
Arrive in Arusha, Tanzania
Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by a Shrike representative who will be holding a signboard with your name on it. He will escort you to Arusha Coffee Lodge, just a short drive away.
Check—in at Arusha Coffee Lodge

Upon arrival at Arusha Coffee Lodge, the charming staff will meet and greet you and offer you welcome beverages. He'll accompany you to your day room and spend a few hours recovering from an unforgettable adventure.
Your Suite Room
—I'll carefully select a room with a magnificent view with a private deck that stretches out onto rows and rows of berry—laden coffee plantations.
Visit Shanga for Souvenir Shopping
I made sure to visit Arusha’s gift shop which is run by Shanga an initiative based at Arusha Coffee Lodge which employs disabled people and teaches them how to weave, blow glass, and bead. This is where our guests do the bulk of their shopping. It's an easy African shopping experience with no bargaining and you'll feel like your money is going to good use.
Infinity Swimming Pool
Take a short break from your unforgettable adventures and cool off your body in the infinity swimming pool overlooking the coffee plantation. Upon request, drinks can be provided for you.
At lunchtime, you may opt to go local with your Safari Leader and feast on “Nyama Choma” meaning roast meat in Swahili, or stay at Arusha Coffee Lodge and enjoy a lunch to die for at George’s Greek Tavern restaurant where the award-winning chef is serving you course after course of Tanzanian local food and International delicacies, the choice is yours!
Get Transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport...
As you bid farewell to Tanzania, you know that this has been an adventure to remember for the rest of your life.
