Kia Lodge


... is located in the Kilimanjaro International Aiport area of the northeast region of Tanzania.

This place comes as quite a pleasant surprise, being much more in the style of a safari lodge than a conventional airport hotel. And all the better for it.

Nevertheless the only real reason to stay here is to overnight when arriving after 22.00hrs, or departing before 08.00hrs.

The hotel itself is set in cactus gardens, has rather pleasant and intimate public spaces, accommodation in around thirty thatched rondavels and a raised pool area with broad views out over the steppe and, cloud cover occasionally permitting, out to the snows of Kilimanjaro.

For all those of us who have done the airport hotel thing repeatedly around the world, a round of applause for the owners of Kia Lodge for sparing us another night in a bland air-conditioned cube.
