Blues and Chutney, Usa River, Tanzania

Blues and Chutney has always been a popular stop for adventurers on their way or from Mt. Kilimanjaro. However, situated very conveniently between Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport, Blues and Chutney is so much more than just a stop. We live in a period where modern finishes and technology tend to dictate the accommodation standards however, the traditional style that Blues and Chutney beholds is more unique and understatedly luxurious than the various newly built hotels and guesthouses down the road in Arusha.

Blues and Chutney is an old colonial house that was converted into the B&B that it is today: a quiet; quaint; beautifully furnished house that will make you feel at home, the moment you drive in the gate. Everything about it feels familiar; from the layout of the house to the warm inviting blanket clad sofas. The house is set on a 1-acre plot with lush, well-established gardens that surround the house and make the perfect setting for an outdoor meal, or a quiet place to read and relax.
