Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge(MKVL) is a small, traditional lodge nestled against a tropical rain forest high on the rolling slopes of world-famous Mount Kilimanjaro ("Kili" to locals). Since opening in 2006, we have had the pleasure of serving guests from over 80 countries throughout the World.
Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge offers an opportunity to live the culture in a peaceful, undisturbed setting. It is a clear cut above the rest in terms of cost, setup, comfort, location and personalized services.
Look at a stay in MKVL as "frosting on your cake" meaning a must to be included in your total package. Do not leave Tanzania before a stay with us---unique, yes; luxurious, no, but very comfortable with hot water, flush toilets and excellent food; adventuresome, with a bumpy 4-wheel ride up to the lodge perched high against the rain forest; memorable, with a grass roots one-on-one exposure to a special African group--the Chagga Tribe. We can almost guarantee you will return home wanting to come back!
Activities for all, including day hikes to witness 1) fabulous wildlife (see photos in Gallery); 2) tumbling rain forest waterfalls: 3) historic tribal caves needing excavation and 4) local Chagga village bustling with activity. Also, before the sun goes down highlighting Mt Kilimanjaro and the evening entertainment, take time to just kick back in the pool or on your porch with a magnificent view.
