Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived on a very late booking and staff was not yet aware, but they went out of their way to get everything ready for us in good time. The staff is also extremely friendly and, although it was a short stay, they made us feel at home. We will be back for a longer stay!

What a surprising jewel in the middle of the Serengeti. A great reception on arrival and it only got better. The friendliness of all the staff make you want to stay forever. Dinner was very tasty and the walk back to the “tent” was also special. To be greeted by a Cape Buffalo half way was a once in a lifetime experience. The “tent” is an understatement. It was Glamping at its best .. we could have stayed forever.. but for sure will come back with the family, to meet again our new family. Thank you Satima !!

Very very lovely place. The best way to experience the wild sleep in the middle of the forest. The staff is very lovely. Special thanks to Mr. Satima for showering us lots of love. You so ever visit this place, please ask for Mr. Satima for the best food experience of Tanzania and also teaches the local language (Swahili). We are from the UK and we always eat bread and butter. My personal opinion when coming to Africa is to experience and taste the traditional food of Africa. Requested Mr. Satima for the traditional food of Africa (Ugali- with beef or chicken). He is best in making it. He always looked after us and took an extra step to experience the traditional food. Tanzania is full of love and various food. Thank you very much for the wonderful hospitality. Will definitely visit again. All the best and will miss you. Asante Sana.

Beautiful lodge at the edge of Serengeti. The staff is lovely (Satima our waiter was extraordinary), food tasted nice and was very varied. Go there if you would like to watch a sunrise directly from your bed. You also might hear a lion at night

This is a beautiful place, with a very nice view and really good food! We had diner with soup, main dish and fresh fruit as dessert. The breakfast was complete with yoghurt, pancakes, bread and eggs. We went here during our Safari for 5 days. Service was also nice and friendly. Thank You, Satima and the rest of the team.

Staff was incredible. Attentive and caring. Fun and sincere. Food was the best in our 7 day safari with a wide variety. Their soups are amazing. Never thought I would want soup on a safari but it works! Rooms were clean and spacious. The meandering path to get to our private tent was all part of the experience. You really feel like you are out in the wild. We spotted so many birds on the property plus antelope, and other gazelles. Beautiful view for miles! We saw Cape buffalo in the distance and JUST missed a group of 15 elephants coming through the property! What an experience! Satima was especially awesome! Engaging and fun!

Our stay at this site has been unparalleled. The surrounding area is gorgeous and brimming with potential for one adventure after another or the wildlife encounter you’ve been waiting for. When you arrive, Elias will make sure you are familiar with the accommodations and comfortable in your stay. Once you find yourself in the bar/restaurant area you will be received by Satima. There is no human better in the hospitality industry. He will learn your desires and personalities quickly and enhance your stay with his vibrant personality while also deepening your awareness of the culture, language and surroundings. Come here. Stay here. Be at home. Be one with your wildest dreams.
