Kikoti means “meeting place” in the Maasai language and this lodge is the meeting place of different people, cultures and wildlife. A lone bush elephant stately lumbers through the camp, watched by buffalo drinking at the water hole passing through on their migration. A Maasai warrior, armed with bow and arrows, escorts you to your room in the evening, looking out across the Simanjiro plains and as the African sun sets over the horizon, the air is alive with noise and life.
The lodge is only six kilometres from Tarangire National Park and three hours drive from Arusha town. Being located just outside the Park offers certain advantages; the chance to enjoy nature walks led by Maasai rangers or night game drives.
Each of the spacious permanent tents have nice en-suite bathrooms. The cosy atmosphere in the bar lends itself to relaxing and chatting with new friends whilst you catch up on the experiences of your day.
