Kilima Lodge is situated in the Northern Serengeti region of Tanzania. It sits on the top of a small rise looking out over hundreds of kilometers of wildlife reserve. There are no fences, and wild game, including lions, frequently pass through the property. During the annual Wilderbeast migration in May and June the hillside and the plains below are choked with thousands upon thousands of these animals. It truely is a fantastic and spectacular location, with views to match.
It is located, literally, in the middle of nowhere. Singita, the luxury African hospitality company, operates a game lodge called Sasakwa nearby, but the whole estate is remote. The closest real town is Arusha, underneath the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, and it is an hours plane flight away or two days by a bone jarring dirt road.
It was a real challenge creating a 5 star luxurious home of top tier first world quality in the East African plains.
Construction of this private dwelling for an American client started in January 2014, and was completed in December 2015, a two year build. AdK Cabinetworks undertook the manufacture and installation of all the interior and exterior woodwork on the building and it ended up being a huge and resounding success. It was a fun and challenging project of first rate quality.
