Arriving at 01:15 after a long flight from the UK, it is always comforting to see a friendly face with a sign bearing my name as we exit the customs hall.
The transfer from the terminal building to the lodge is literally just five minutes...More
I stayed here for one night upon arrival in Kilimanjaro. The lodges are all spread out in cottages which is nice. Inside there is a large bed surrounded by mosquito nets and a large fan above for circulation. The bathroom is large enough but the...More
I liked the place and environment, surrounded by nature and living in thatched houses. However menu too limited and the lodge runs out of basic drinks like coke, which you can find anywhere else in Tanzania. Maintenance seems to have challenges as my colleague's room...More

This may be the "airport hotel" for Kili, but it's also a great place from which to begin a visit to Tanzania. We spend several days here at the beginning of a safari, which allowed day trips to Arusha NP, well worth the effort. The...More
This was the first time I arrived on an international daytime flight, so needed somewhere to stay the night on arrival, prior to travelling to the bush the following day. I chose Kia lodge for its convenience – a few minutes drive from Kilimanjaro airport....More

Yes. Let reception know your plans as soon as you check in. I would re-confirm the arrangement before you went to bed. My ride was easy to arrange and went smoothly. It's a very short drive to KIA (less than 10 minutes if I recall right) so you don't have make allowance for traffic.

They provide faithful rides from the airport! Faithful? We landed at 1am. Stuck in customs until 2:30am. We were the very last passengers to leave the customs area. The Kia Lodge driver was there, waiting for us. He knew our name because we had requested a ride in advance. As I recall there was no fee for the transport since we were staying at the lodge. We definitely gave a good tip to the driver.
