Dik Dik Hotel
The mid-range Dik Dik Hotel nestles within 20 acres of wildlife-filled tropical gardens by the Usa River at the foot of Mount Meru, 20km from Arusha.
The twenty three double and eight twin rooms all have a private veranda and hammock. Each room is simply furnished and features a minibar, telephone, hair dryer and private bathroom with hot showers. For families or groups there is also a further villa with interconnecting rooms, lounge, dining area and secluded garden.
The restaurant serves a variety of African and international cuisine using ingredients from their organic farm, and there is a well-stocked bar to enjoy a relaxing drink. There is free but limited Wi-Fi in the reception and there is a modest sized swimming pool and sun loungers to enjoy in the garden.
The hotel mostly serves as a base for climbing Mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru and visits to Arusha National Park, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara.

Big thanks to Jonathan Morris for preparing an excellent trip – one of our favourite holidays to date. The guide at Sand River couldn’t do enough to ensure we saw and did everything of interest. The guides were very happy to do walking safaris, and we fit in a walk every day, as well as some boating and fishing trips.
