Clients' Wishes

The official Hotel for the 09th Congress of the Africa Society for Blood Transfusion is the Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge. Within the same compound as the Tanzania Convention Centre, nestled between Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge is located within a lush coffee plantation stretching over 140 acres, with natural streams flowing from Mount Meru passing through the property.
The flourishing vegetation and magnificent views of the snow-capped Mt Kilimanjaro and the towering Mount Meru, right in front of the lodge, is an absolutely awesome sight. This lodge is ideally located between Arusha town and Kilimanjaro International Airport, 27 km either way. The lodge has about 350 rooms ranging from presidential suites, executive cottages, deluxe and standard rooms.
