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.

Fabulous hospitality

Kaliwa Lodge provides excellent accommodations and hospitality for a short trip to the area. The staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are kept well, and the food is delicious. This would be a perfect place to stay before or after hiking Kilimanjaro, and there are views of the mountain for all guests to enjoy.
