If you're in it for the view of the majestic Kili, the location couldn't be better! Their food & service is also lovely. Truly disconnected from the world, it is the most solitude I've felt in a while (in a good way!). I spent my day walking around, reading and exploring the valley around. Must however note that the ride...

We very liked the hotel. The staff, especially Lenny, were incredibly friendly. One evening after dinner it felt like we joined a family. We heard some African music in the restaurant and Lenny danced to it. We all laughed together, and they kept the bar open only for us. The staff cared a lot and tried to do anything to...

Delightful lodge on top of hill, overlooking Mt. Kili. Extremely helpful staff. Early morning, pre-breakfast, Tanzanian coffee jar in the front door of cabin, so kind! Breathtaking views. Delicious home-made food. A little far from the road, take that time and cost into account when planning your trip, but depending on your schedule it is truly worth it. You will...

This place is a beautiful and lovely place to stay. We came here first thing before climbing Kilimanjaro, and stayed for 2 nights. The lodges are cute and simple, with nice hot showers, generator electricity and plenty of warm blankets. The Kilimanjaro view was spectacular as described. They also cooked delicious meals for us and chatted with us about the...

We stayed with 6 people at the Lodge and had an absolutely amazing time! The drive up there was a great experience itself. We passed by little villages with kids waving and smiling at us, through banana and coffee fields and up a great road with awesome views of the forest, valleys and the kilimanjaro! Arriving at the lodge we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

The fairly remote authentic African lodge is located 16 km(9miles) from Moshi, the Gateway to Mt Kilimanjaro. Guests enjoy a breathtaking view of Mount Kilimanjaro and an opportunity to live the culture in a peaceful, natural setting. The lodge is ideal as a "Base Camp" for hikes, safaris, and overall excursions in the region.

“Most rooms (bungalows) have direct views of Kili without leaving the chair in front. Just 'wow'. Mine was 'Leopard', to the left the plains below with the lights of Moshi at night, straight ahead some farms and the rainforest, to the right: the object of the visit in its full glory!”
