Interested in sharing some authentic Tanzanian meals with your friends back home? We offer cooking classes on location for guests staying at Kiota. Another fun way to experience part of Tanzania! Flora Temba will be your instructor.

The “garden” is as nature created it, with indigenous trees common to the area. On the Kiota property you’ll find bush babies, civet cats, genet cat, chameleons and if you’re lucky, snakes. There are over 100 types of birds found on the Kiota property.

Kiota is fully run on solar energy. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also means that when power is down in Arusha (which can be frequently!) you will still have lights, hot water, cool drinks, etc.

A new map of Kilimanjaro has come out, showing the climatic changes/ realities of today. Kiota will have it for sale for US $20  And, Kiota has joined the Frankfurt Zoological Society movement to kick-start a de-snaring program and reduce poaching. Guests can contribute to this project with US 1 when staying at Kiota. Contributions will be on a personal level. Please inquire with Barbara about this when at Kiota.
