Beautiful place, friendly service I could stay here for 14 days and skip the safari :) The swimming pool area, with Kilimanjaro view is outstanding, food was great and service friendly and helpful I would totally stay here again and again.

We stayed at Kia Lodge both before and after our safari in Tanzania. Our first night was extremely hot and both of our group's rooms had only overhead fans to cool us. We suffered through that night, but upon our return we realized that some of the rooms had air conditioning! Needless to say, our second stay was soooo much...

I had a very early flight from Kilimanjaro airport and so stayed overnight at Kia Lodge. Firstly, it was badly signposted and so my taxi took some time to find it, the welcome was lovely and I was shown to my room. By this time it was 7pm and I had to leave at 2 am the next morning. The...

We stayed at Kia Lodge for one night following our flights from the UK. The Lodge is conveniently located a few minutes’ drive from Kilimanjaro airport. The accommodation is in individual huts spread throughout the gardens. The rooms were clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and we had a good night’s sleep. There was plenty of hot water for...

I stayed here the last time I was in Tanzania- hated it. Insects everywhere, poor service, untrained staff. Thought I'd give them a second chance this time- even worse! No running water, phone between the room & reception wasn't working- in fact of the few people who I spoke to at the airport who had stayed there - complained about...

I stopped by KIA Lodge with several hours to pass before I could check in for my flight at the nearby Kilimanjaro Airport. So I only used the restaurant and gardens. The restaurant was very good and a reasonable selection of food on the menu. The dishes I chose were all good quality and tasty. I chose not to eat...

Nice little hotel with rooms in separate cabins on a lovely piece of property that is well maintained. Very comfortable and very clean. There is a restaurant on site with a limited menu; we found it acceptable but nothing special. There is a little shop where we were able to buy last-minute gifts of t-shirts. If you need to stay...

As this lodge is really close to the Airport it is a very good place to stopover before you fly out on safari. We stayed there for one night and it was very relaxing. Rooms are spread over a large area and are quite comfortable. The bar area was good and there was a fair selection of drinks. Breakfast was...
