Peaceful. Affordable. Truly Tanzanian.
Karibu sana - welcome - to The Vijiji Center. We're a small, locally owned guest lodge just minutes from Arusha on the slopes of Mount Meru in the village of Nguruma. And that makes us a little bit different.
Things here in the village are a little quieter. And a little greener. In fact, The Vijiji Center is nestled on two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, complete with a swimming pool, spectacular flowers and colourful birds. Even the stars are brighter at night!
Our 22 guest rooms are unique too. Our round banda rooms are built in a traditional African-style by local craftsmen and are decorated to reflect the many cultures of Tanzania, while our new apartments reflect a more modern Tanzanian style. And better yet, they're reasonably priced. The same is true of our full-service restaurant featuring authentic African cuisine.
The other thing that sets us apart is our commitment to our community. We specialize in cultural tourism. This means visitors can learn about our Meru way of life, while the proceeds from the tours go to support our local families. And when you stay with us, we'll donate 5% of our profits to one of the social projects sponsored by our non-profit organization, The Vijiji Foundation. It's just one more way you can feel good about your stay!
