Fodor's Expert Review The African Tulip

44 Serengeti Rd., Arusha, Arusha, Tanzania

If you are in need of a short stay with some modern hotel amenities before heading off for a safari, the safari-themed Tulip is a good option outside the bustle of Arusha. Geared mostly for safari travelers and businesspeople it has all the basics you would expect from a midrange hotel but without the crowds. The menu features good South Indian food. Relax with a cold Kilimanjaro beer in the charming Zanzibar Lounge amid the dark, rich carved wood and share your safari stories.
