Greeted with hot towels to remove safari dust, tasty beverages and Masai dancers. The endless pool was perfect for a late afternoon swim! The room was designed for royalty! The grounds and gardens were beautiful and made a great place for the most colorful selection of birds!

My wife and I were fortunate to stay one night at the hotel and can only say it was stunning in every way - staff, accommodation, food and service. An oasis in the middle of nowhere - it take a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access the facility but once there it's a gem and the views

Do you supply hairdryers?
Yes, they do. And everything else you might need. If it's not in your room, just ask for it. The staff is excellent!

Hi. If you are reaching 9 pm at JRO, I would advise you to stay overnight at Arusha. Next day, you can pass by Tarangire National Park (day safari) and check-in at Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge. This way you will save your day as well and will get more safari option. We also have a luxury lodge in Ngorongoro viz. NGORONGORO OLDEANI MOUNTAIN LODGE (7 kms from the Ngorongoro gate). We will be launching “Ole Serai Luxury Camps – by Wellworth Hospitality” in Central Serengeti in last week of Feb 2017. Ole Serai Camps is a collection of Luxury Tented Accommodation located in the most sought after SAFARI destinations in Tanzania. If your travelling dates are March onwards, we can take care of your entire itinerary. Visit our website for direct email contacts. Regards

"Rooms closer to the valley ridge have unbelievable views."
"I can't imagine any room not being a good one!!"
"Get one of the guest houses overlooking the valley and Lake Manyara"
"We were on a tour, and everyone was thrilled with their rooms so I believe any room would be excellent!"
"Ours room was nearer to the main lodge building but that does mean that the sunrise is a little blocked by trees and the other buildings."
