Kigongoni Lodge is my favourite place to stay near Arusha. The Lodge is fitting in with the African landscape decorated in a tasteful, artistic and comfortable style with attention to detail. There is a beautiful breeze throughout the outdoor dining area where you can look out over the hills. It is quiet and a great place to either start your safari or end it or like me, become a permanent fixture as I am using it as my base for my work. The clientele is very diverse, and interesting all here whether climbing Mt. Kili or participating in a wedding from the UK. The service is personal, food continental and if you ask the Chef, they will be happy to prepare authentic Tanzania dishes. The owner Sander and his lovely wife Claudia are a hip educated Dutch couple who couldn't be nicer. There is also a non profit facility nearby sponsored by the Owners' family for children that in itself will give you an idea of the hosts and the hospitality you'll find here. I just hope they don't mind if I never leave...
