We came to Arusha for the first time almost 40 years ago. Arusha was then a small dusty town in an economically very poor Tanzania. We were heading to the big national parks with Serengeti as our main goal. The love for the land and its natural and humans has matured over the years and after a number of trips in the region, we decided to stay here. The dream of a small hotel in Arusha finally became a reality.
