What we offer


Are you looking for cosy and affordable accommodation in Arusha? Do you prefer to stay in a home-like atmosphere? Do you want to experience local life? Then welcome to Nyumbani Hostel!


'Nyumbani' in Swahili means 'home', and that's exactly what we are providing here in Arusha. It doesn't matter if it is before or after you climb Mount Kilimanjaro or Mount Meru, before or after you go on safari in one of the National Parks in the Northern Circuit, or if you are doing a World-Wide trip, we offer you a “nyumbani” (home) far away from home.

Bachelor-/Master Thesis


We can help you to find a good topic for any thesis for school or university. Tizia herself studied Cultural Anthropology and wrote her Bachelor Thesis about stereotypes and images of the Maasai in media and tourism. While you are doing research and collecting data, we care for the rest so you can concentrate on your work. 


- Safaris and Mountain Climbing

- Hiking Tours: Waterfalls, hot springs, forests and Lake Duluti

- Cultural Tour: Maasai Market & villages

- Journeys (by bus, train, airplane) to other cities like Mosh, Tanga, Lushoto, Dodoma, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar Island, where we have partners to stay with


Tizia & Tini traveled a lot through Tanzania and they know the places personally. So how about a trip to the Rock Arts in Kondoa or the 120.000 years old footprints at the slopes of Oldonyo Lengai Mountain close to Lake Natron?
