Excellent Hospitality
Kaliwa Lodge provided an exceptional experience with outstanding views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The managers and staff were friendly and helpful at all times. In addition to clean rooms, the freshly prepared meals and tranquil surroundings were delightful. The lodge can also arrange excursions with a local guide. I hiked to Machame Camp one day and participated in a village tour/coffee roasting experience on another, both with local guide Edimund. Thank you for a delightful stay.
