Kilimanjaro Halisi Retreat is located on a 350 acre organic coffee estate. It is at an altitude of 1400m above sea level and is located between the town of Moshi and Mweka gate, which is the main descent route for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The hotel is perfect for acclimatization before the climb and is also great if you want to spend a day or two relaxing in a cool and lush place on Africa's highest and most popular mountain.
You can enjoy guided or unguided walks throughout the estate and through the rows of coffee, swim in the rivers and watch the wildlife. The retreat also offers guided coffee and tea tours, and nature walks.
Kilimanjaro Halisi Retreat focuses on doing the simple things well. The food is homemade and prepared by their two chefs. The beds are comfortable and they use solar power to heat the water and power the electricity.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
