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
Grand opening 2016: Over a period of 4 years, in the traditional ‘pole pole’ (slowly but surely) style, the main building, bungalows, ‘tree house’ and Meru View terrace as well as a large swimming pool were established around the property...

  Meru View Lodge
Only a stone’s throw away from Arusha National Park, at an altitude of almost 1400 m, the cosy bungalows are an ideal starting point for mountain tours taking place on Mt. Meru or the snow-capped, majestic Kilimanjaro...

  Ngurdoto Lodge

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…


10-year jubilee with the opening of its new African View Lodge at the foot of Mount Meru

2016 is going to be a landmark year for African View Ltd. Almost 10 years ago, Debbie and Horst Bachmann started their African View company with the takeover of Meru View Lodge. This year, their dream comes true with the official opening of their very own lodge on 4th June. After a long and intensive search, the property for the new African View Lodge was purchased in 2012. Over a period of 4 years, in the traditional ‘pole pole’ (slowly but surely) style, the main building, bungalows, ‘tree house’ and Meru View terrace as well as a large swimming pool were established around the property. Now, with only one remaining wish for a good rainy season in April and May to boost the new garden before the grand opening on 4th June, nothing is standing in their way!
