Die Unterkunft
Are you looking for a different Kilwa Hotel Room?
How about the SuperAdobe Eco Room at Kilwa beach lodge built with moon landing technology – not your usual Kilwa Hotel Room. The owners of Kilwa Beach Lodge have been involved through family ties with the environmental building world for many years and wanted at their hotel in Kilwa, hotel rooms which were different.

In 2012 in association with KIYODEA, a local charity, we began offering courses in environmental building using methods including superadobe and bottle walling. All buildings at the hotel have some aspects of eco building but not as many as this flagship room, being the first of its kind in Africa.

These methods, long abandoned by most of the developed world, have been given a modern twist through the innovative ideas of a revolutionary architect, the late Nader Khalili. While working on a solution for building lunar bases using sandbag blocks attached with velcro, he invented a building technology called super-adobe and founded the CalEarth Institute in California to share his knowledge.

​In fact, eco-domes share many traits with those found in nature, not only do they seamlessly blend with the natural landscape, but they offer an alternative sustainable form of housing for the future as you can see a stay here is not your usual Kilwa Hotel Room

RUINS OF KILWA KISIWANI
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its influence on the birth of Swahili culture, what is now a fishing village was, a thousand years ago, occupied by Arabs. They minted gold and sold spices, jewellery and slaves, whilst holding licentious parties under the light of the moon and made the island state of Kilwa Kisiwani..

The Kilwa ruins are a must for any visitor to Kilwa and are a great help in understanding the Kilwa people and ancient Kilwa itself.

The history of ancient Kilwa and the Kilwa people
In around Eight Hundred AD the Shirazi Arabs travelled by dhow from modern-day Iraq, when Europe was still embroiled in the dark ages. Within a few years these entrepreneurs amassed an unimaginable fortune by trading in gold mined deep in the African interior; modern day Sofala in Zimbabwe.

Soon Kilwa Kisiwani became a commercial centre for the Islamic world and beyond; trading in items ranging from Persian earthenware to Chinese porcelain.

Mosques, a market place and an ostentatious palace were built. These can all be seen today in various states of ruin as well as the thousand-year-old resting place of the Sultan and his family.

Over the centuries Kilwa Kisiwani’s fortunes fluctuated with changing gold-prices and the arrival of the Portuguese Vasca da Gama in 1502 heralded its decline and the Portuguese eventually built the crenulated gereza-fort which greets you at the harbour.

The city once again grew and became more important due to its connection with Zanzibar during the slave trade.

Songo Mnara, a neighbouring small island close to Kisiwani was a Swahili stone town which was inaugurated in the early 19th century. Its comparatively short history compared to its more illustrious neighbour of Kilwa Kisiwani has allowed archaeologists to examine early Swahili houses within a specific time period.

Both islands have been found to be cradles of the Swahili culture and were the starting points of the Islamization of the east coast of Africa.

Both islands were jointly awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1981.

We are able to offer tours around the island from the lodge.
