Colobus Mountain lodge and Campsite is very close to the Arusha national park and the road towards is similar to all other road in Tanzania except the highways.
A good place to stay before or after your safari. Don't expect top luxuary but a decent and nice place to stay.
Rooms are large with two double beds, a couch and large bathroom. The setting is romantic with an evening sunset view on mount meru.
The lodge arranged us a tour around the villages and a forrest with the Colubus Monkeys for free (only small tips).
Colobus Mountain Lodge is scenically located in the shadow of Mount Meru,
immediately outside the southern boundary of Arusha National Park. A short,
20-30 minute drive from Arusha to Usa River brings you to the access road; this
winds uphill through small villages and settlements in the foothills of Mount
Meru, with excellent views of snow-capped Kilimanjaro. Arusha National Park
Gate is situated at the top of this 200m long dirt road, with Colobus Mountain
Lodge just 5 minutes further to the left along the unfenced Park border line.
The centerpiece of this rustic site is an open-sided bar and
restaurant with a tall thatched roof, serving first-rate Western and Tanzania
cuisine at sensible prices. Eighteen self-contained and well-appointed bungalows are scattered throughout the spacious grounds along well-lit pathways.
