Arusha, Tanzania

Once a private home, the Olerai is set on eight acres on the outskirts of Arusha. It welcomes guests with nine en suite rooms spread over the garden grounds. The family-style dining veranda overlooks the manicured lawns, and in the evenings, the fire is lit for socializing over a gin and tonic or regional wine. Mercy, the chef, and her crew prepare delightful cuisine for a farm-to-plate experience with home-grown vegetables and herbs. Olerai provides free Wi-Fi, concierge service, and massage services on request.
