Very, very special. On our trip we visited about ten different lodges and hotels. Only at Kiboko Lodge all staff members are local people, including the manager. (instead of European, Indian or Kenian) The result is a truly warm welcome atmosphere and service, although not...More

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.
