Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park has an abundant variety of wild animals and is a hiker's paradise. Around Arusha National Park, trips to nearby villages, farms and markets provide excellent insight into the life of the Wameru Tribe. Visits to a coffee farm or walking safaris with the Maasai living below on the steppe are a few of the many options available to guests staying at our lodges.
  African View Lodge
Lying at the foot of Mount Meru with stunning views of the mountain and nestled in the small village of Ngongongare, you will find the African View Lodge. This lodge, with its warm and friendly hospitality, serves as an ideal base for climbing trips to Mount Meru (4566 m) and Africa’s highest mountain – Kilimanjaro (5895 m) – as well as for safaris departing to the world famous national parks of Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Located a good half hour drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport and, likewise from Arusha town, African View Lodge is the perfect way to start your holiday.


Serengeti National Park

Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park is famous for the annual wildebeest migration, when millions of herbivores pound the open plains on their journey for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti is undoubtedly the most impressive game-viewing in Africa.
  Serengeti View Camp
Our Mobile Tented Camp follows the never-ending circle of life in the Serengeti. Throughout the year we choose the most spectacular spots inside the park, as close as possible to the large, migrating herds of over 2 million wild animals. Each tent is equipped with twin beds, bedside tables, luggage racks and, of course, your own toilet and shower as well as a small terrace…



Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a massive wildlife-filled volcanic caldera at the edge of the Serengeti.  A year round water supply supports over 30,000 animals including zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, eland, and Grant and Thomson's gazelle.  A great number of herbivores are hunted by lions, hyenas, jackals and cheetahs - the crater has the highest predator density in Africa!
  Endoro Lodge
Endoro Lodge borders the forest of Ngorongoro Conservation Area and is an ideal midpoint between Arusha and the Serengeti. The lodge’s chalets are comfortably furnished with lovely views across the garden to the forest. For those wishing to stretch their legs after a long drive, the Endoro River Nature Trails offers suitable possibilities for hiking, bird watching and game viewing…




The exotic island of Zanzibar is located in the Indian Ocean approximately 40 km east of mainland Tanzania. Its cultural heritage, magnificent palace ruins, idyllic beaches and the scent of tropical spices make the island a very special holiday destination. The endless sandy beaches on the east coast are an ideal spot to relax.
  Bahari View Lodge
In the shade of coconut palms, you will find the charming bungalows of Bahari View Lodge. “Bahari” means “Ocean” in KiSwahili, the local language. The fringing coral reefs protect the island from the waters of the Indian Ocean. The restaurant and the beach bar are situated in the tropical garden - a perfect place for a sundowner with a spectacular view across the turquoise waters…


A new era begins with the new African View Lodge at the foot of Mount Meru

2016 was a landmark year for African View Ltd. Debbie and Horst Bachmann and their staff celebrated their 10-year anniversary of their company African View Ltd. It all started with the lease of Meru View Lodge in 2006. In 2016, their dream came true with the grand opening of their very own lodge on 4th June 2016, aptly named after their company. African View Lodge lies at an altitude of 1400 m on the foothills of Mount Meru only a few minutes away from Arusha National Park. The cosy bungalows accommodate 20 en-suite rooms with each room individually furnished and decorated in different Tanzanian themes. This truly African style is also present in the main building with its banana leaf ceilings and artwork on the walls. There is simply no better way to start your African holidays than with a sundowner on our Mount Meru View platform or, with a refreshing swim in the beautiful infinity pool.
