          Lovely lodge. Lovely gardens. Lovely rooms. Looooooovely food. Lovely service. Did I mention that it was Looooooovely? IT IS! Please don't miss the excellent wines which you can choose from in the glass-bottomed bar with a view to the temperature-controlled wine cellar.

          I would like to end my safari here for a couple of nights to relax. I cannot seem to find a website for Plantation Lodge. Does anyone have any information on how far the lodge is from Kilimanjaro? Do they offer any kind of transfers to the airport? Thank you - Judy

          Sorry, this might be to late to answer, but I would think there are some hours driving. I am sure the hotel can arrange a driver for you though.
