Fodor's Expert Review Outpost Lodge

37A, Serengeti Rd., Arusha, Arusha, Tanzania

It can be slightly difficult to find good budget accommodations in Arusha, but the Outpost has long been a staple for those who have to watch their wallets or are more comfortable in a backpacker-style accommodation. Rooms are sparse, but neat and clean, with their garden rooms being lovely options. There are a wide variety of accommodations ranging from dorm-style rooms to triple and singles scattered in different blocks around the property and an on-site restaurant that serves up basic pub fare. Go for rooms in blocks S or M as they are inside the garden area and are slightly more updated.
