Fodor's Review

Giraffes, zebras, and other wildlife roam three 11-acre savannas separated by the encircling arms of this grand hotel, designed to resemble a kraal, or animal enclosure, in Africa. Entering the vast atrium lobby is like entering a cathedral with a roof formed of thatch rather than marble. A massive clay chimney structure dominates the right-hand side of the four-story lobby. Cultural ambassadors give talks about their African homelands, the animals, and the often museum-quality artwork on display; evenings include storytelling sessions around the fire circle on the Arusha Rock terrace. Meals in two spectacular restaurants are African themed.
