Kiboko Lodge is run by former street kids who have been trained to the highest standard. This is a wonderful place to stay.
It is located in rural Tanzania about 45 min drive from Kilimanjaro. We stayed for 3 nights and could have stayed longer....More
At first look, Kiboko Lodge was a bit daunting. It is an 8km. drive down a very bumpy dirt road from the main highway and it would appear that you are driving into the middle of nowhere. Well, in a way, that is true. It...More
What a find this little lodge was! Absolutely perfect. I went just for a one night get away, needing a bit of downtime, peace and quiet and that's exactly what I got. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, with a private outside seating...More
This was teh second place we stayed in Tanzania. The rooms (chalets) are beautiful and spacious, with an excellent and large double bed. From your personal porch you look out over a swampy area (hippo's!) and a beautiful sunset on mount Meru. Lots of weaverbirds...More

Hi Frank..was there in May..this lodge was not an upscale lodge like the SOPA's or Sarena's but it has some unusual characteristics. It is basic with small buildings which contain two units each. The setting is wonderful, the food is good, the staff attention and operation is terrific. What sets it apart is that it is owned and operated by a foundation that educates and trains street kids in Arusha including how to operate a lodge..they do a great job. Worth your time and effort to spend at least one night and if you are so inclined, to make a contribution to the foundation (we did). The only down side is that the road leading to the lodge is one of the roughest, but that maybe adds to the appeal.
