KIA Lodge is situated on a secluded hill in the heart of beautiful savannah scenery that is typical for East Africa. Guests can admire the vast views of the African plains and of course the grand Mount Kilimanjaro which shows her snowy top mostly early in the morning and at sundown. The Lodge is your first or last stop on your way in or out of Kilimanjaro International Airport. You will find Zanzibar style at the reception, Makonde woodcarvings in the rooms and the famous Tinga Tinga paintings in the tropical restaurant.
