We stayed at Kia Lodge the first night after arriving in Africa and have been received very warm by the kind hotel staff. The simple room was clean and enough for one night. We would not like to stay there for several days.
Nice facility. Friendly staff. Perfect for an early morning flight out of Kili Airport as it's right beside the runway-5 min drive. However, the food is really bad in the restaurant! I mean inedible and I am not picky. Chocolate dessert was a substance I...More
The hotel is quaint, comfortable and so close to the airport. Stay the night before beginning your African Adventure. The pool, gift shop, and spa will help you to unwind. Loved it all. The bar is a good place to connect with home as the...More
This place has only one thing going for it..location.
It is 5 minutes from the airport but you should choose some other place even if it means a longer drive.
We left on Turkish which leaves at 2AM so booked an overnight..they had the gall...More
Ive been to different mid-range lodges during my safari but i must say all of them are far better than Kia's facilities. For $207 rate, this already is a standard room for 5 star hotel in other countries. You need to upgrade your facilities to...More

Yes. Let reception know your plans as soon as you check in. I would re-confirm the arrangement before you went to bed. My ride was easy to arrange and went smoothly. It's a very short drive to KIA (less than 10 minutes if I recall right) so you don't have make allowance for traffic.
If you're a total control freak, you can make an alternative arrangement; negotiate with the taxi driver who drops you at the lodge to pick you up in the morning.
They provide faithful rides from the airport! Faithful? We landed at 1am. Stuck in customs until 2:30am. We were the very last passengers to leave the customs area. The Kia Lodge driver was there, waiting for us. He knew... More
They provide faithful rides from the airport! Faithful? We landed at 1am. Stuck in customs until 2:30am. We were the very last passengers to leave the customs area. The Kia Lodge driver was there, waiting for us. He knew our name because we had requested a ride in advance. As I recall there was no fee for the transport since we were staying at the lodge. We definitely gave a good tip to the driver.
