The Babylon Lodge


Babylon Lodge was started in the early 80’s by the Late Stephen Eric Lyamuya and his late wife Rosemary Stephen Lyamuya (daughter of chief Mangi August Marealle) and since then it has been one of the best hotels in Kilimanjaro region. It has constantly been renovated to keep up with the changes in the market and to ensure our guests enjoy quality yet affordable services. For guests who are staying here they will find Babylon Lodge to be a home away from their usual home.

For those who work in busy towns, Babylon Lodge offers a relaxing atmosphere that will help you relax and enjoy the village life. Walks in the village, day trips to Mt. Kilimanjaro and Cultural tourism program will make you fall in love with Marangu; you will leave Marangu feeling relaxed and re-energized!


Babylon Lodge is located on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the Northern part of Tanzania. It is 5km from Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (Marangu route), 95km from Kilimanjaro International Airport and it is the last good hotel on your way to Rongai route. Whether you are climbing Mt.
