Kaliwa Lodge is perched at 1300 meters above sea level, in the lush flora of Kilimanjaro’s highland rainforest. The weather is pleasant, and the scenery is breathtaking. Enjoy a sundowner on our balcony while seeing the snow-capped summit of Kilimanjaro emerge through the clouds. Look down into the Weru Weru River Valley, which is highly wooded. Relax in comfortable bungalows surrounded by towering eucalyptus trees, banana plantations, and bougainvillea cascades. To the sound of crickets chirping and bushbabies laughing, fall asleep under a blanket of stars. The mournful call of the hornbill and the chattering of monkeys will wake you up.

Kaliwa Lodge is located near the Machame Gate entry to Kilimanjaro National Park, in the foothills of Kilimanjaro. It has a restaurant and a bar, as well as local activities.
