The original founder of Ilboru Safari Lodge in Arusha, retired Colonel Metili, was inspired to develop the site by his deep love for nature. He went on to create a verdant garden paradise, planting each and every indigenous tree himself.
Our popular swimming pool is rated as the best in Arusha, if not the entire northern safari circuit! The centerpiece of the lodge measures 22 meters long, giving ample opportunity for real exercise before and after your stint on the mountain as well a refreshing dip during hot days.
On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a refreshing drink. Our friendly receptionists will then give you a full briefing on what to expect during your stay. The reception desk is staffed 24 hours a day and here you can get assistance, book excursions, store excess luggage and make use of our lodge safe.
