Swahili for “home,” Thomson's Nyumbas are eco-friendly, mobile, tented camps, well-located for the best wildlife viewing in northern Tanzania. Designed exclusively by Thomson Family Adventures, and based on over 30 years of experience, these seasonal camps allow you direct access to the wildlife while keeping your family comfortable during your safari. Nyumbas are canvas structures luxuriously appointed with handcrafted furnishings, sisal rugs, Maasai beading, fine linens and antique textiles. The spacious layout offers plenty of room and each includes a spacious private verandah with comfortable seating and a writing table. Oversized, fine-mesh windows look out over beautiful African vistas while allowing the fresh breeze in off the savannah.
Private, en suite bathroom facilities include self-contained, pump-flush toilets that do not require fixed plumbing. You will have all you need with plenty of washing water at any time, safari-style hot showers, a private dressing area, water basins, soft bath towels and hand-made soaps, and fine bedding.
These eco-friendly camps feature superior service, delicious gourmet and kid-friendly cuisine, and the luxury of peaceful and sustainable co-existence with the surrounding landscape and wildlife.Mount Meru Hotel
An Arusha mainstay near the busy downtown area, the Mount Meru Hotel sits on a 15-acre garden and provides comfortable, modern accommodations. Amenities include cable TV in all rooms, internet access, currency exchange facilities, concierge, massage services, babysitting on request, playground for children, outdoor swimming pool, sun bed, a volleyball court, and a nearby golf course.

This former private residence is a unique property located on the outskirts of Arusha; it has been a refuge for injured or orphaned animals for over 15 years.
Homey, comfortable cottages are placed throughout the garden, while in the main building, an elegant lounge and dining area offer a quiet place to relax and share safari stories. At one end of the picturesque garden, there is a semi-enclosed park-like setting where marabou stork, zebra, gazelle, warthog and even elephant recover from injuries obtained in the wild. Depending on their condition, every effort is made to reintroduce them to the wild.
You may be lucky enough to hear monkeys chattering in the trees in the evening or scampering over the roof in the morning.
