We arrived very late at night so weren't quite aware that we were literally in the middle of the Serengeti. The check-in process was easy - we were greeted with a towel and a drink while we checked in to our rooms. The rooms were small but very functional and the water was nice and warm. The buffet dinner was...

Located in the northern Serengeti, this place is hiding midst a rocky Hill. The rooms have lovely view over the fields filled with various animals. The room relatively few. Compared to other Hotels in Tanzania the staff at the reception was unfriendly. The sunset view from a plateau was beautiful. There were lots of restrictions concerning Hot water and electricity....

You will find this place on top of a small mountain overseeing the Serengeti . The view from the terrace and sunset point is amazing and if you have a room with view into the park you might be greeted by buffaloes in the morning. The room was clean and simple. We could hear our neighbors clearly. They offer laundry...

This lodge is set in an amazing location, and the views from the windows are fantastic. The place has a lot of potential. However, it needs a huge overhaul. The rooms are small, and full of old brown heavy furniture. If this was was all replaced with lighter more modern fittings it would give the feeling of more space. The...

Great room with animals to visit during your stay. The Lodge is designed well with excellent views. Food was good but sometimes breakfast was cold as it seemed that the fires were not started early enough. Wifi really not available but they tell you that when you arrive.
