Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge
Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge is a small, traditional lodge nestled against a tropical rain forest high on the rolling slopes of world-famous Mount Kilimanjaro. Built in 2004, guests from over 60 countries have stayed at the lodge.
The authentic African lodge is conveniently located 16 km from Moshi. Guests enjoy a breathtaking view of Mount Kilimanjaro and an opportunity to live the culture in a peaceful, natural setting. A must stop, to include in one's itinerary while in Tanzania, the frosting on the cake!
The lodge is ideal as a 'Base Camp' for hikes, safaris, and overall excursions in the region. Ideal for trekkers needing to first acclimatize before attempting a climb of Mt. Kili or Mt. Meru.
Excellent! Weathered with the tropical conditions but rustic African style with natural building materials and lush tropical grounds in a remote peaceful setting. Built in 2004, it has improved with age giving it a quality that blends in with its beautiful surroundings!

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
Transportation is provided to the lodge from Moshi and Kilimanjaro Airport at reasonable rates - please see mtkilimanjaroviewlodge.com for specific prices.
The lodge is located 48 km (29 miles) or 1/12 hour drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). 32km (20 miles) on paved road to Moshi, and 16km (9+ miles) on dirt road up to MKVL via the Village of Shimbwe Juu.
While it is possible to arrange transportation to the lodge independently, we highly recommend allowing us to take care of all the details for you, as our highly secluded natural location can be very difficult to navigate for anyone not familiar with the region.
A total of approximately 1 1/2 hours from Mount Kilimanjaro International Airport to the MKVL. A paved road under 30 miles easterly to Moshi, a population of 150,000, and The Gateway To Mount Kilimanjaro' Another 9 miles north up 'Mt Kili' on mostly dirt road through the Uru Shimbwe Village to the end of the road.
The ride alone through the farmed land and villages is a wonderful cultural experience with an occasional element of excitement!
