The Monastery has a guest-quarter compounded by 20 self-contained rooms. The rooms are simple but comfortable, vary in size and may accommodate up to 5 people. The rooms are furnished with mosquito-netted double beds, twin beds, or a combination of both. Every room has an individual toilet and a shower with hot water.
Included in your full-board accommodation, delicious and abundant meals are prepared and served by the nuns and novices in a wide common guest dining-hall. There are 3 daily meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and tea/coffee in-between meals. Most of the food is either sustainably and organically grown in our garden and fields or locally sourced from the markets and producers in the area.
**If expressly requested, we can prepare take-away meals for your safari!**
- Also, upon availability and prior arrangement via e-mail or phone, dedicated staff is ready to welcome you at Kilimanjaro International Airport and drive you to the monastery.
We speak Swahili, English and Italian.
