We visited 4 different lodges on our safari trip, this place was the cheapest on price but was certainly not cheap in anything else. Beautiful tent, great views of Kilimanjaro. Staff were fantastic, I thought something had gone missing from my tent, and the way this was handled by the manager and staff was exemplary. I'd like to apologise, it... More

Lovely place with friendly staff. Very close to the Amboseli park entrance, nice view on Kilimanjaro, a pool and beautiful gardens. Thanks to the manager, who supported us when we were resolving issues with our travel agent.

Our first stop on a 7 day Safari and we weren't disappointed the welcome was warm and friendly, the tented rooms spectacular and the food superb. Duncan (my namesake ) and the restaurant staff were wonderfull with the children in our party looking after them while we chose dinner from the ample and delicious buffet.

The hotel is situated outside the national park and has a good view of the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro. Our welcome to the hotel was good and friendly albeit we'd carried our entire house from NBO seeing as we have an infant who needs catering (LOL). The staff are friendly most notably were Mr. Gona, Mr. Duncan & the Guest relations... More

Our first Safari experience and what a wonderful treat! Everything was perfect, the tent was amazing, the bed was so comfortable and quiet, the food was incredible and to suit every taste. In short, exceptional. I particularly loved looking at the stars from the peace of the camp. If we could, we would stay there a week!!
