When visiting the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro I stayed for three days at this Bed & Breakfast. It's a nice place for travellers that seek local conditions by seeking to avoid the tourist hustle and bustle while even seeing village farming in action. It is a small farm with (when I was there) a few cows, goats, rabbits, chickens and crop land with maize, vegetables, bananas, coffee (neglected due to low world market price) and pretty flowers around the house. The place is run by a motivated ladies group and the main host lady lives at the location (it is her farm). She speaks quite reasonable English and she is very nice with good local food, beer and other drinks available on request (she runs no bar!), coffee and tea readily available, no wifi but good internet ‘in the air’. The lady is quite nice in helping to go on a very scenic 1-3 hour walk (depending on how far much you want to use local buses and motorbikes) to the a local market and tourist location. The place is best suited, in my view, for people (individuals and small groups up to .. persons) that want to relax and breathe the local atmosphere for a few days. A kilometre of meditative walk from this place one has a spectacular view of the Mt Kilimanjaro (if not clouded).
How to get there: Machame Nkweshoo Cultural Tour is located in Machame Nkweshoo, a 10 minute drive from the junction next to Kilimanjaro Machine Tools along the Arusha-Moshi Highway.

She can arrange for pick up from nearby bus stops or tourist locations. The place is a few kilometres from where the main trail starts to the top of the Kilimanjaro (she can arrange transport for that too).
