The Lodge and the villas are located on a private wildlife estate and offer a relaxing start or end to a safari in Tanzania. They are perfect for short or long stays and can be taken on an exclusive basis if traveling with friends and family or on a shared basis if you are just 2.

Located just outside Arusha, which is the gateway to some of Tanzania’s best national parks; The Villas also boast access to Tanzania’s only championship golf course. The Villas have en suite bedrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, and private chefs to produce everything from delicious breakfasts to refreshing lunches, afternoon teas and sundowner cocktails to be enjoyed around the swimming pool. Dinners on the veranda are delightful using only the freshest of produce. Whether for a short stay or extended, there is plenty to do ranging from early morning horse rides, to a round of golf on the 18 hole champion golf course, relax at the Polo Club, take a tour of a fragrant coffee plantation in Arusha, or work up a sweat hiking and canoeing around Kilimanjaro and Lake Duluti.

The Lodge and Villas are located only 45 minutes from Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport and within 15 minutes from Arusha national park. For flights to Northern Tanzania, the estate has a private airstrip just 10 mins away.

Our personal approach allows us to provide a tailor-made service to suit each and every one of our guests. Guests, after breakfast, can spend the day sunbathing by the pool or playing a round of golf on Tanzania’s only championship course. A delectable lunch is available outside followed by a cocktail under the shaded patio, which overlooks the surrounding bush and wildlife. Afternoon tea will be served on the patio or you could be tempted outside again with views of both Meru and Kilimanjaro from the verandah and later gaze at the stars from your open-air fireplace. Dinner is ready when you are and afterward the fire beckons; a nightcap to wrap up your day at Kili Villa before retiring to your room ready to dream of Africa with the unique night sounds to send you on your way to dreamland.

Activities

Horse riding

Kilo Bravo, Kaskazi’s horse base is in USA River /Maji Ya Chai, just a short drive away from the Villas. The ride takes place on Dolly Estate and whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced

rider, there is an opportunity and experience for everyone. Those with little riding experience can enjoy a gentle hack along dusty tracks where wildebeest and antelopes graze contentedly. Led by experienced guides, one can explore the meandering paths, spotting a rich array of wildlife along your way. Regularly seen on the Dolly estate is one of the most elegant mammals found in Tanzania, the Gerenuk. We offer morning and afternoon rides, and 2-hour rides (depending on pace). The morning rides depart at 08:00 AM and the afternoon rides depart at 14:30 PM. We are flexible with time however these are the best hours of the day to be out in the bush on horseback. Some people like to combine the morning ride with a lunch /brunch at the polo club afterward, if this is of interest please let us know and we will book lunch /brunch for your group in advance (it’s possible to pay the club in cash directly for food and drinks). The afternoon ride could be combined with a nice cold sundowner at the club, if this is of interest let us know in advance so that we can plan accordingly (it’s possible to pay with cash at the club). For lunch or sundowners, we will then ride on horseback to the polo club and finish the ride there. Thereafter arrangements will have to be made for the transport to pick up directly from the club rather than from Kilo Bravo, the horse base.

18 Holes Championship Golf Course

Walking distance from Kili villa lies Tanzania’s only Championship Golf course. A beautifully landscaped golf course with challenging water hazards including the resident crocodile offers an amazing golf experience with great views of the surrounding mountains.
