Our family stayed in two rooms here after arriving in Kilimanjaro and before heading out on Safari the next day. We were picking our son up in Moshi so this was perfectly located. The place was well maintained and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Although we arrived late, they allowed us to order dinner which was very good as... More

... to our Kilimanjaro climb. We stayed here as a group with Action Challenge before trekking and camping for a week. The rooms were clean and just what we needed ... especially after the climb. The staff were friendly and the food was good too!

I am currently living in Moshi as I work as a volunteer, and when my husband came to see me we chose to stay at this lodge due to the appropriate location between the hospital KCMC (where I work nearby) and the Moshi inner city. We had a very lovely stay there for 4 nights before our safari, so nice... More

Ameg was the definition of accommodation...they accommodated my very early morning arrival/check-in and check-out, as well as my dietary restrictions. Prime location for all especially those who plan to climb Kilimanjaro. The view of the mountain peeking over the lodge is awesome. And the avian visitors that roam the grounds are quite exciting. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and... More

Only stayed here the one night as I was heading off to climb Kilimanjaro the following day, I found the whole place charming, nicely set out in its own grounds, friendly staff, lovely buffet food and free wifi access ( via a code from reception) which was ideal to let everyone know you had arrived safely. Added advantage of a... More

The AMEG Lodge is best described as basic but clean accommodation with an excellent on site restaurant mostly serving Indian style cuisine. We stayed here for 2 days both before and after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. Overall our stay was great and had no complaints and would recommend the Lodge as a good place to stop over. It was about 50... More

While most people vacation with others, I went to Ameg alone, without any specific plans for tours, and with a slight handicap. The manager was wonderful. He arranged drivers/guides for my the day trips and balanced them so a less rigorous day followed a more strenuous day. All were gracious and simply delightful. I truly felt at home and was... More

I used Ameg for booking my trek up Kilimanjaro via the Machame route in Aug 2014 and was very happy with the service that was provided by the company on the mountain. The guides and porters were very helpful, friendly and experienced and took the time to walk at a comfortable pace with everyone in the group.

We used this lodge on our trek to Kilimanjaro. While there were certainly good portions of the lodge, like the food and the room accommodations, the actual trekking outfit is very poorly managed and run. You should look elsewhere for a more professional experience.

Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate you highlighting the situations on the mountain. We would have really appreciated if you could have also mentioned how you had medical issues and had refused to submit a medical report to the agent that had organised the climb for you, hence your early return from the climb.
