Kimbilio Kilwa Lodge
is located in the Kilwa
area of the Indian Ocean Coast
of eastern Tanzania
Set on the town beach adjacent to the better known Kilwa Ruins Lodge
, this small Italian-owned place may be simple, but it does have a nice feel and some pleasant touches.
The open-sided restaurant is to one side of the plot overlooking the beach and backed by the dive school. The half dozen rooms are set in gardens across the rest of the plot and take the form of thatched rondavels, simply but colourfully equipped.
Kimbilio Kilwa Lodge may not be much in the greater scheme of things, but in the context of Kilwa it could well be seen as the most attractive of a rather rag-tag collection of accommodation options.
It is certainly the only place with an apparently functional dive operation.
These coastal areas are most commonly combined with Tanzania safari
options such as Serengeti safari
, Ngorongoro safari
, Ruaha safari
and Selous safari
, as well as Kilimanjaro treks
, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
