As you would expect in a property of this standard, the design and character of the rooms are as individualistic as the Lodge itself. All rooms have a veranda with comfortable chairs where guests may relax during the late afternoons enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings, soaking up the distinctive atmosphere of the Lodge while watching the wildlife and birdlife.
A completely new look has been created for the guest bedrooms at Mount Meru Game Lodge to include single, Queen and King size four-poster, wrought iron beds with fitted mosquito nets, continental quilts (sheets and blankets are available on request), large and small pillows for reading and sleeping and much more.
Carefully concealed behind the distinct ‘old world charm’ of Mount Meru Game Lodge is an array of modern conveniences which are designed to further enhance your stay.

The main emphasis of the Game Sanctuary is to provide a safe haven to African plain game and bird life. These include Eland, Ostriches, Waterbuck, Zebra, Buffalo and of course the enormous variety of birds which come to feed, breed and enjoy the unique freedom offered by this very safe environment.
The majority of animals were once either orphaned or injured and were brought to the Sanctuary for rehabilitation. By choosing to stay at Mount Meru Game Lodge, you will also be playing a very important role in helping these animals since the activities of the Sanctuary are entirely financed by the lodge.Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary is extremely fortunate to receive daily visits, normally both in the mornings and late afternoons, from troops of Black & White Colobus Monkeys. These magnificent creatures, which can only to be found in and around Arusha National Park, were once hunted almost to the point of extinction for their incredible fur. Listen to their unique call and watch them as they leap from tree to tree. A Safari to Tanzania can only be considered complete once you have encountered these truly spectacular animals. The animals and birdlife at Mount Meru Game Lodge and Sanctuary are certain to delight all guests and visitors.
The Usa River, the magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, the wildlife, birdlife, trees, plants and shrubs all combine to make Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary a truly exquisite natural wonderland.
