Amazing location right in the middle of the park with panoramic views. Tents have a full ensuite with running water and are very comfortable given the location. Food is buffet style but of very high quality. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall great stay.

Hello, We can assist with a car & driver. One way from Arusha to the Lodge is $90. (This is for the transfer - not per person.) Let me know if this would interest you. Karibu sana. A.Simonson
