Karibu - or a warm welcome of the friendly staff - when you arrive Kiboko lodge after a 7km bumpy road. A tranquile lodge in a tropical garden in a swamp with cosy rooms, soft beds and good shower. Excellent diner in the open restaurant with fireplace, afterwards songs from the staff (former street children wich were excellently trained for... More

We stayed 2 nights in this lodge which is set up by a foundation supporting street children. The special thing is, it is ran by former street children who got their life back together. The people working there are very kind and helpful and serve good meals. The lodge itself is situated at the end of a 7km bumpy road... More

It is a 7km bumpy road up the mountain to reach this lodge, but once you enter the property you find yourself in a tranquile tropical garden. The staff of this lodge is very welcoming and friendly. At night we had a beautiful dinner under the stars, warmed by fire pots. It was a pity we only stayed one night,... More

After travelling 9 days through Uganda a calm and pleasant start in Kiboko Lodge in Arusha. We loved our time there. The village walk was very special and the food and service amazing. So warm and welcome we felt and how sweet all staff was with my 2 year old.

Hidden from view of the main road is a wonderful little lodge called Kiboko Lodge. The hippo after which it was named has left the property because his watering hole dried up. Marsh grasses have taken over. Now it is a wonderful bird sanctuary! So our disappointment over not seeing the hippo was replaced by all the amazing birds! Kiboko... More

A very charming and confortable boutique hotel within a magnificent environment close to Arusha National park. The staff is really kind. The room was very cosy. The food was delicious And they dont forget any detail to make your stay as a really unique experience. Besides having an excellent accommodation, staying at this hotel, means helping a non profitable fundation... More

This social project is truly inspiring, and the lodge and surrounding gardens a haven for wildlife and visitors. It is situated rather a long way away from the main road, so at the end of a long day, it was an interminably long and terribly bumpy journey to reach the lodge, but it proved well worth it. The food was... More

Stayed here for a few days in March before starting a safari. Besides the lodge supporting a good cause, it is a very pleasant place to stay. The boys, supervised by Frank (the manager) do their very best to provide you with the best service possible and are very friendly and motivated. Rooms are small but nice and the view... More

As the "eco tourism" business picks up speed, the idea of a community-focused and sustainable lodge experience is clearly a step above the rest. That it pulls it off shouldn't be a surprise - the foundation that runs it focuses on strict training and apprenticeships to meet rigorous standards. We were fortunate enough to be there for the unveiling of... More
