Tourvest East Africa has been awarded the full management contract for Kili Villas, situated near Arusha in northern Tanzania, with effect from the 1st of March 2017.
Tourvest East Africa operates the Lemala tented camps and Kuria Hills permanent camp in the northern Serengeti, as well as the Wildwaters Lodge and Adrift river-rafting company on the River Nile in Uganda.
Leanne Haigh, Lemala Chief Executive and Tourvest East Africa Director of Operations, says the property will be rebranded to Lemala Kili Villas, so that it can fit into the company’s existing Lemala guest circuit, while the villas will also be extensively refurbished.
The property comprises three villas with a total of 13 rooms, each of which has been distinctively decorated to showcase the best of local African design and craftsmanship, combined with colonial-style furniture. Build around a central private courtyard, each villa has a reception, living and dining room with views of both Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro. The villas can be rented on a per person basis or on an exclusive-use basis.
