At Twiga Lodge we pride ourselves in producing the very best in freshly made home cooking. Our location means we have access to beautifully healthy and freshly picked vegetables, tropical fruits and herbs, some of which are grown in our own very own vegie garden. We have access to farm meat and poultry as well as fish from Lake Victoria and the Indian Ocean.

We cater to international tastes, offering a wide range of salads, home made soups, stews, steaks and other meat dishes. We also create inviting alternatives for vegetarians, and colourfully tasty desserts. Nothing beats the aroma of freshly made bread, which at Twiga Lodge is prepared and baked on site in our kitchens.

Our staff are friendly and highly skilled with years of experience behind them. Hand picked from the local community, the kitchen staff enjoy the art of cooking and take great delight in creating meals, including a range of African dishes that will pleasantly surprise you.

End the meal with a cup of freshly brewed coffee from the nearby coffee plantations, with an African ‘Night Cap’ to compliment it. Tanzania produces an average of 50,000 tons of Arabica coffee per annum.

All meals are taken in the dining room or on our beautiful balcony looking over the grounds and horizon, which on sunny days has an infinite blue hugging Kilimanjaro, and a star-studded sky under the blanket of night.

We also cater to individual requests. We can set up a fabulous dining table within the garden, allowing complete privacy to enjoy a star-studded romantic dinner by candle light, or a champagne breakfast. In addition we have a new BBQ deck outdoors, beautifully designed to compliment a meal on coals!
