Award-winning Tanzanian hospitality. Unforgettable safaris. Affordable prices.
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.
Karibu sana – welcome – to The Vijiji Center Lodge & Safari.
Things here in the village are a little quieter. And a little greener. Our lodge is nestled on two acres of delightfully-landscaped gardens, complete with a swimming pool, full service restaurant, and a bar and lounge, all surrounded by fabulous flowers and beautiful birds. Even the stars are brighter at night!
Our 26 guest rooms are unique too. Our garden cottages are built in a traditional African-style by local craftsmen and are decorated to reflect the many cultures of Tanzania, while our new pool-side apartments reflect a more contemporary Tanzanian comfort. Whether you’re traveling as a couple, with friends, on your own, or with a family, we have a room to fit your needs. And better yet, they’re affordably priced.
Our wildlife safaris are affordably priced too. We offer a wide variety of safari packages for a variety of travelers and budgets, and will work with you to create your own unforgettable Tanzanian safari adventure!
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 donate a portion of our profits to one of the social projects sponsored by The Vijiji Foundation, our non-profit organization.
So karibu sana. Come experience our outstanding Tanzanian hospitality, have an adventure of a lifetime, and feel good about your stay in our community!
