MORE COMPREHENSIVE OVERVIEW
Our special eco lodge is in a natural, secluded, wildlife setting against the rain forest at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. An ideal "Tanzania Base Camp" conveniently located approximately 16 kms, 10 miles, out of Moshi. near the best attractions that Tanzania has to offer, including:
Treks/Hikes - Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Gate, the famous easiest "Cola-Cola" access point for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and "in our back yard" the more challenging and less crowded scenic Umbwe and Machame Routes. We can easily accommodate all routes to the summit. Mt Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4566m--15,220'. It is more challenging but less known than world-famous Mt. Kilimanjaro and a good option for individuals looking for a "macho" climb with exposure along the knife edge rim with beautiful scenery.
MKVL One-Day Hikes to Mnambe and Masare Twin Falls and Rau Falls with the opportunity to take a refeshing swim below the misty cascading falls in the crystal clear pools. Daily hikes are ideal for young children and non-mountain climbers as well as the nature lovers wanting to capture with binoculars and camera various colorful birds, swinging monkeys and an occasional miniture blue duiker. Chagga caves to appreciate the former foreign/tribal occupation in the area are currently under restoration. Visitations on foot are anticipated in the near future.
Wildlife Safaris in the world-famous National Parks including Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park and Manyara National Park, as well as the Zanzibar Archipelago, Lake Victoria and other areas of Tanzania.
