Kiboko Lodge is little more then one hour drive from Arusha and can only be reached after a 30 minutes drive on a bumpy road (even with a taxi in dry season). After a welcome drink close to the fireplace, you can take a warm shower in the cosy lodges with the sound of frogs on the background. After the meal service, you are invited to admire the sky with diamants and to sing the national "Jambo, habari yako" song with the staff. In the morning while you enjoy breakfast, you can see the birds playing above the swamp. It's close to paradise and also to the beautiful Arusha National Parc!
