Kigongoni Lodge


... is located in the Arusha area in the northern region of Tanzania.

This place offers decent mid-range accommodation in a pleasant semi-rural location around 10km to the east of town, its hilltop position offering broad views over the surrounding shamba farms and commercial flower farms.

The lodge is reasonably convenient for Kilimanjaro International Airport and caters specifically for late arrivals, with a light evening meal.

Driving up the turnaround on top of the hill, we first encounter pleasant public areas including lounge, bar and dining areas, leading out to a very nice pool.

Guest accommodation is in 18 very pleasant cottages tucked away on the verdant slopes to three sides.

The lodge has very nice Dutch owners, who established the place in order to provide revenue for Sibusiso, a school for children with special needs, which they established nearby and which can be visited by guests. It is one of the most highly respected and well run projects of its type in Tanzania.

We are particularly keen on the walking in the immediate area, there are some lovely volcanic foothills, shamba farms, coffee plantations and pretty villages to explore.
