The Local Area
What to do when at Sakila Sunrise Lodge
The entrance to Arusha National Park is only minutes away and definitely worth visiting. The trail-head for your Mount Meru climb is located there, so very convenient to stay at Sakila Sunrise if your trip includes this climb.
Usa River, our closest village, a short drive down the hill, has lots of street merchants and shops of interest. The batik fabric selections are amazing.
You may not think of Tanzania as a golf vacation, but it certainly can be. Within a short distance are 2, 18 hole golf courses, as well as one in Arusha.
If you want a relaxing vacation that doesn’t require a lot of time in a safari vehicle or have already been to the parks, I can’t think of a better place than Sakila Sunrise for relaxing, enjoying the view, the garden, the pool and deck, the fireplace at night, sitting around the barbecue, roasting your own morning coffee. It’s so quiet and peaceful here, I rarely travel to Arusha. Of course, you will want to visit Arusha and we can accompany you, if you like.
For those of you going on safari or climb, Sakila Sunrise is perfectly located for your pre/post adventure. Either your safari company picks you up at the airport or we do. We’re 30 minutes from Kilimanjaro airport and Arusha, in what is generally considered the most beautiful area. You enjoy the beauty of Tanzania on day one, waking to the sound of birdsong and the sun rising above Mount Sakila and possibly a clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is a gorgeous spot that I know you will love.
