Shangazi House


A charming boutique property located on 13 acres of lush gardens at the foot of Mt. Meru in Northern Tanzania with views south and east across Maasailand.
A ten-minute drive takes you up into Arusha National Park, the home to deep calderas and Colobus monkeys.The colonial-style main house and 4 outlying cottages provide not only great privacy and comfort, but also the luxury of the cooling breezes coming off the mountain. One can also relax after the long flight on the massive veranda overlooking the garden, or in the cozy living room.



Shangazi House consists of four private cottages in the garden and two private rooms in the main house.There is a swimming pool next to the main house and fireplaces in the lounge and dining room for the cooler months.

Shangazi House is only a 10 minute ride to Arusha National Park, a mountainous and forested sanctuary "island" where juniper forests and water falls are situated along tranquil lakes and forested volcanic rims.
The wildlife here is prolific and relatively easy to find, and includes Colobus monkeys, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, hippo, bushbuck, leopard and an extraordinary bird-life. Hiking and canoeing are easily arranged with fully trained guides, and we can schedule anywhere from an hour or two in the Park up to a full day exploring in our own uniquely designed game viewing vehicles.
The land surrounding Shangazi is beautiful and fairly rural; nearby villages are quick to welcome visitors. We can arrange to visit small tribal areas or local markets, meet people, and enjoy the lively bustle, bright colours and age-old trading banter of traditional Africa.
