There are many superlatives appropriate to this place. It is a well conceived and cozy haven with wonderful views of Mt. Meru, mesmerizing bird sounds, and a faraway "jungle" kind of atmosphere. The staff are sweet, helpful, and genuine, and they provide first-rate service. (The...More
Great stay at Kiboko Lodge, good service and the food was fine. As a birdwatcher it was nice to have breakfast and watch birds at the same time. Not to far from KIA, and close to Arusha National Park.

Hi Frank..was there in May..this lodge was not an upscale lodge like the SOPA's or Sarena's but it has some unusual characteristics. It is basic with small buildings which contain two units each. The setting is wonderful, the food is good, the staff attention and operation is terrific. What sets it apart is that it is owned and operated by a foundation that educates and trains street kids in Arusha including how to operate a lodge..they do a great job. Worth your time and effort to spend at least one night and if you are so inclined, to make a contribution to the foundation (we did). The only down side is that the road leading to the lodge is one of the roughest, but that maybe adds to the appeal.
