The view is the most amazing in Serengeti! We had a top room which offers the best view from your private balcony. The room was very clean and bed comfortable. Water pressure was good. Wifi available in your room, but as expected a little slow and intermittent. The bar had a good selection of drinks and comfortable seating... The food...

The rooms are all dome shaped and very comfortable which is exactly what you need after a long day wildlife viewing. The staff are helpful and pleasant. Restaurant is as good as any lodge in Tanzania.

We went there for 3 days. Location is perfect. The rooms are clean. Staff is friendly only the food needs improvement. Breakfast is good but dining is not the best. Check your food before you eat it as the grilled meat can be grilled way to long or even not grilled at all. It happened to me that the first...

Extraordinary views from our room of the Serengeti plain with the Wilderbeast massing. Great place to explore the Serengeti, with a leopard sighted within 400m as we drove out at dawn. Service was personalised and nothing too much for the staff. On our last evening all staff sang a farewell song to a family who had been there. Highly recommend...

This place is really off the beaten track. What views of the Serengeti plains. The lodge is not fenced, so animals have a tendency to wander around. At night one must summon a member of the security staff to get to the dining area. Interesting...but in the morning you wake up to Impala or Helmeted Guinea fowl outside your veranda...

Amazing experience, everyone at the lodge was very pleasant and really made our stay enjoyable, the food and cleanliness is of high standards. I would recommend requesting a upper room lodge as we were not advised to go out from our balcony due to the surrounding wildlife. Every night there is some sort of entertainment which make the place even...

From the window in our room, we were visited by zebras, water buffalo etc. -- we couldn't believe our eyes. We were living with the animals in nature but in a safe and luxurious surroundings. We want to go back!

We stayed 2 nights, rooms are organized as small huts, but very comfortable, I especially appreciate the bed net, which was not disturbing and annoying while sleeping. The area is not fenced, so you can come across antelopes feeding just few meters from your terrace, and sometimes even buffalo or leopard (as the escort guy told us). Food is great,...
