Location and Contact


• From Kilimanjaro/ Arusha airport, take a shuttle/ taxi (transfers can be arranged by The Greenhouse) to Arusha city centre and ask your taxi driver to take you to 'Ngusero, Sombetini.' We are located about 3km straight along the Sombetini Road. On the left you will pass a bright orange bar called 'Nairobi Shine Bar'. Continue straight and turn left where you see 'Arusha City Bar' on your right. The Greenhouse is the first property on the right with a big blue gate. From Kilimanjaro Airport, the journey takes approx 45mins-1hour and about 20mins from Arusha Airport depending on traffic.
• By public transport, from the main dala (bus) stand opposite Meru Post Office in the town centre, take the dala going to 'Ngusero' or 'Sombetini'. When you get on the dala, ask the conductor to stop at the corner after Nairobi Shine Bar - opposite Arusha City Bar. The journey takes roughly 15 minutes and once you turn left off the main road, you can also look out for the Nairobi Shine Bar on the left and Arusha City Bar on the right where you will get off the dala.
