Adam's Mt Kilimanjaro Climb

4 5 1

Good location. The owner makes a point of personally introducing herself to the guests at dinner. The rooms are very good. The bathroom is good but in the second room I was in after the climb the toilet was badly positioned in the bathroom so the seat couldn't open properly and had to be held open. Just a minor annoyance.

We enjoyed our stay here. It’s a pretty lodge with comfortable rooms and delightful, welcoming and friendly staff. I really like the gardens; they are big, green and filled with interesting plants. Feels African and really homely. We stayed overnight before climbing Kili and it was perfect.

Ilboru Safari Lodge is an informal and very friendly little lodge that’s great before or after a Kili climb.
