Kilemakyaro Mountain Lodge


... is located in the Machame area of the northeast region of Tanzania.

Situated close to the village of Machame, this relatively large and pleasant hotel is set on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, close to the Mweka trail foot.

Set out in spacious grounds, the main central areas are comfortable if a little bland architecturally, whilst the 40 or so guest rooms are set in pairs in thatched rondavels and are perfectly adequate. There is also a nice pool.

By local standards Kilemakyaro Mountain Lodge seems rather pleasant and upmarket, although guest reviews are rather mixed, to say the least.

These days the Mount Kilimanjaro Machame Route treks are amongst the main high-volume low-quality options on the mountain and we generally try to avoid offering them. We therefore very rarely use any of the accommodation in this area as bases for the mountain.

For higher quality routes on the west of the mountain ... Mount Kilimanjaro Shira Route treks and Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route treks ... we prefer to base trekkers at one of the higher quality lodges in Arusha.

For the higher quality route on the east of the mountain ... Mount Kilimanjaro Rongai Route treks ... we use one of the hotels in Marangu Village as a base.

Many trekkers also spend time in the adjacent Tanzania North region, including Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Tarangire safari and Lake Manyara safari.

Some visitors also combine with options further afield including Ruaha safari and Selous safari to the south of the country, Katavi safari and Mahale Mountains chimpanzee safari out west, Maasai Mara safari over the border in Kenya and Virunga Mountains gorilla safari over in Rwanda.

These mainland areas are also commonly combined with nights down on the Tanzania Coast, especially on Zanzibar Island, Pemba Island, Mafia Island or Fanjove Island, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
