This was one of the four lodges we stayed during our 10 day safari around Tanzania. The drive to this lodge was special as we transferred many different landscapes and drove through some bustling towns. The most striking feature is the red soil which covers literally everything in this red dust. The lodge is located at the end of a bumpy track through some poor village which makes you realise the huge fortune we have and almost makes you feel uneasily out of place. Nevertheless, the lodge itself employs a lot of local villagers which is a great step towards sustainable tourism benefiting the locals as well. The lodge itself is well designed and beautifully accompanied with a diversity of flora and large gardens. You can walk around the gardens and if you explore far enough you will see the big crop fields in which the lodge sources most of its vegetables and other foods with the help of local women. The rooms are very spacious, nice and well equipped with mosquito nets. There is a large reception + room where you can relax/read books/play games with refreshments. The restaurant is very good (buffet at night) and provides probably the best packed lunches for day safari trips! The lodge has a pool, which although very cold, provides a nice area for relaxation. Overall the best feature of this lodge is its gardens and crops and its approach to sustainable/eco tourism. Everything is good.

This lodge had large rooms spread out across the property like cabins. Each room had a fireplace. WiFi was available in each room, although sometimes slow. Meals were family style with very limited vegetarian options.

We spent 2 nights during our 10day safari. It is clean and comfortable, relatively simple accommodations. The food and coffee is excellent with much of what they serve grown on the property. There is a pool which we did not have time to use. The grounds are lovely with nice birds in the garden. A fan would have been nice to get air moving but generally it was comfort at night.

I loved our one night stay at Tloma lodge. Came here from Kilimanjaro airport which took approx 3 hours. Stayed at the Simba room. The food options were very good. Had stir fry for dinner. Breakfast and lunch options were very good too. The staff were all very friendly and nice. Only negative was the credit card machine didn't work and they charged extra 5$ to have the fire going in the room. The room itself was spacious and the wood stove was beautiful. Overall very good experience.

Dear Vjays Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us while your safari on this side of our lovely country Tanzania. Thank you also for taking your valuable time to write a review on TripAdvisor. We are sorry for inconvenience caused for the credit card machine not working on your departure day, it is rarely happening and this was a problem on the banking network which were solved some time later. The extra $5 for fire as explained on your briefing on arrival is for the replanting of the trees as we are Eco friendly lodge and we use fire wood to do the fire in the room. We hope to host you again in the future as we promise to be as good as always. Once again thank you very much With kind regards Happiness Akyoo Lodge Manager

Stayed here for 2 nights after 6 days out on game drives and to relax before flying home. Service from staff was excellent. During our last day we were the only guests and although we were happy with a sandwich for lunch they insisted on cooking us a hot meal to our liking. We took a tour with Melody who works at the lodge, he took us to see the locals wood carving and we also visited the most gorgeous family to see how they process coffee beans. In total we spent an hour and a half, separating the bean shells, roasting the beans and then finally grinding them. To see the children singing and dancing to Jambo Bwana was just adorable, definitely a highlight of the trip.
