The Lodge

Rivertrees lies nestled in the foothills of Mount Meru, in view of Mount Kilimanjaro. This peaceful country estate combines old-world ambience, African country elegance, excellent farm cuisine, personal service and genuine warmth from your hosts.

The inn offers tranquility enhanced with contemporary conveniences, ideal for rejuvenation following stressful overseas travel or deep relaxation after a long safari or strenuous climb up Mount Kilimanjaro or Mount Meru.

There are 18 individually styled garden rooms, 2 hidden cottages and the River House—a secluded thatched cottage on the Usa River. Fresh country meals are served in the restaurant, the gardens, the pub, and near the river or in the beautifully restored farmhouse with its warm ochre colors and cherished family antiques.

Who hears the rippling of rivers will not despair in anything.

- Henry David Thoreau

Garden Rooms

Each of our eighteen Garden Rooms are nestled under a blanket of trees, overlooking the expansive gardens of Rivertrees. Each room is unique in its decor, filled with high quality antique furniture and intricate floor coverings. Amenities include self contained bathrooms with shower or bathtub, mosquito netting, hot water, complimentary wifi available in all the rooms, a laptop available for guest use, laundry services, and private dining upon request. We are pleased to offer complimentary safe drinking water which is filtered on-site by our Bio filter. It enables us to reduce our plastic consumption and its negative impact on the environment.

River Cottages

Our two River Cottages perfectly meld both nature and privacy for your entire stay. Situated along the Usa River under a grove of trees boasting two families of monkeys (Blue & Vervet), our guests tell us they have never slept as well as after a night in the Cottage. Additional amenities to the Garden Rooms include an outdoor private shower, self catered hot beverages, a fireplace and a large patio overlooking the river.

River House

The latest addition to Rivertrees is the exclusive River House offering two identical wings, each suited for double accommodation, available to book either as a partial or complete house. We suggest outfitting your stay with private chef and butler, each which can be arranged through our Reservations Manager. Additional amenities to the River Cottages include a living room, bar, kitchenette, and a large terrace area: perfect for relishing a cold drink or sumptuous meal while reflecting on the Usa River.
