I don't know what segments of your trip are Business Class and what are not. If you're flying from IAH to AMS in Business Class, there's a KLM Crown Lounge airside near Gate D8 that is open from 6 to 21:00 daily. It's available only to those on international flights.

At the Kilimanjaro airport, there's the Tanzanite Lounge open to Business Class passengers for KLM and other carriers. It's open from 6:00 to 22:30 and is located airside. Go through the departure lounge, turn left and go up the stairs. There might be a mobility issue here. There's also a Tanzanite Lounge in the Dar es Salaam airport, but with a short connection there (same flight, same plane) you most likely won't make use of it.

For information and reviews of lounges, see this link:

Sorry, I won't be able to respond further to this thread. I am currently booking flights for an upcoming trip. This needs to be completed before my travel companion leaves Friday for Bhutan. She is traveling with me in Nepal and India. I leave Oct. 21 for Kathmandu.

Thanks for everything. You've been a great help.

The only leg that is not Business is Amsterdam to Kilimanjaro and that is a non-stop flight with no connections so I don't think I will need the lounge before that flight. I can use the IAH lounge before I leave Houston and might be able to use the one in Kilimanjaro before I fly out of there.

Good luck on your trip. I'm leaving Oct 23rd for Hawaii
