Rivertrees, a country Inn set right at the Usa River halfway between Arusha and the Kilimanjaro International Airport, a long time favourite of this correspondent when visiting East Africas Safari Capital will emerge from its annual self prescribed hibernation and reopen its doors to guests on today, 14th May.
The Inn closes every year during the low season to undergo refurbishment, spring cleaning, modernization and major back of house maintenance, but from experience the six weeks are always well spent and the annual new look of Rivertrees is a reward to the guests, when they can finally return to their favourite hangout.
The location along the river, in particular for those guests opting for the River Cottage cannot be more relaxing, nor get one closer to the surrounding forest, and the extensive gardens of the property invite for strolls, bird watching or simply hanging by the pool side reading a book. Weddings in particular have in recent years taken to Rivertrees like fish to water, making the Inn one of Arushas most sought after venues for those tying the knot.
A favourite for the residents of the area too Rivertrees is hugely popular with the local neighbours once a week, when they gather at the Inn for drinks and dinner, or just to meet friends not seen since the last outing.
