Shangazi House - Arusha & Mt Meru - Tanzania
Built along the foothills of Mount Meru in northern Tanzania, Shangazi House is located in the Usa River area of Arusha about thirty minutes from Kilimnajaro and Arusha Airports.
Set in the shadow of Mount Meru, a part of the volcanic chain that makes up Africa’s famed Rift Valley, the lodge is conveniently close to the amenities of the city, yet still gives one the feeling of living in the traditional African bush.
Originally built as a private home, the main house is spacious and comfortable with a veranda that overlooks a sweeping landscape of flower beds and huge native trees. The four garden cottages sit just to the east of the main house with tranquil views not only of the gardens but also of distant Tanzanian landscapes. The interiors are all done in a traditional African colonial style with many pieces designed and created by local artisans. The main house has two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms; these rooms adjoin and can be opened up into a family suite. The cottages are doubles with a bathroom and a front veranda – three have a fireplace.
There is a swimming pool next to the main house (along with a pool bar) and fireplaces in the lounge and dining room for the cooler months. Ask the experts for the best personalized advice...
