JAMBO! KARIBU! WELCOME! You have just found Paradise in Tanzania, East Africa
Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge(MKVL) is a small, traditional lodge nestled against a tropical rain forest high on the rolling slopes of world-famous Mount Kilimanjaro ("Kili" to locals). Since opening in 2006, we have had the pleasure of serving guests from over 75 countries throughout the World.
The authentic African lodge is conveniently located on the southern slope of this magnificent mountain 16 km. (10 miles) from Moshi town, "The Gateway to Mount Kilimanjaro." It is a true sanctuary with waterfalls, indigenous plants, birds and wildlife. Guests enjoy a breathtaking view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Mawenzi and Mount Meru, as well as a stunning panoramic view of the vast and diverse valley below. During the Monsoon Rainy Season, April and May, the dirt road up to the Lodge may be wet and slippery--not for the faint of heart! Also, frequently in clouds, the days are limited of viewing Mt. Kili at her best.
Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge offers an opportunity to live the culture in a peaceful, undisturbed setting. It is a clear cut above the rest in terms of cost, setup, comfort, location and personalized services. Look at a stay in MKVL as "frosting on your cake" meaning a must to be included in your total package. Do not leave Tanzania before a stay with us---unique, yes; luxurious, no, but very comfortable with hot water, flush toilets, excellent food; adventuresome, a little with a 4-wheel ride up to the lodge perched high against the rain forest; memorable, definitely with a grass roots one-on-one exposure to a special African group--the Chagga Tribe. We can almost guarantee you will return home wanting to come back!
Yes, this special full-service African lodge at 9,600' (2,926 meters) is ideal for starters as a "Base Camp" for mountain climbers coming from lower altitudes needing to acclimatize before the ardous climb. Also, great for day hikers, bird/wildlife watchers, families, groups, conferences and even for those going on safaris or trips to popular destinations like Zanzibar and the numerous wildlife parks and preserves. Call it your African home and experience the wonderful culture during your stay in Tanzania.
