This place is really off the beaten track. What views of the Serengeti plains. The lodge is not fenced, so animals have a tendency to wander around. At night one must summon a member of the security staff to get to the dining area. Interesting...but in the morning you wake up to Impala or Helmeted Guinea fowl outside your veranda...

Amazing experience, everyone at the lodge was very pleasant and really made our stay enjoyable, the food and cleanliness is of high standards. I would recommend requesting a upper room lodge as we were not advised to go out from our balcony due to the surrounding wildlife. Every night there is some sort of entertainment which make the place even...

From the window in our room, we were visited by zebras, water buffalo etc. -- we couldn't believe our eyes. We were living with the animals in nature but in a safe and luxurious surroundings. We want to go back!

We stayed 2 nights, rooms are organized as small huts, but very comfortable, I especially appreciate the bed net, which was not disturbing and annoying while sleeping. The area is not fenced, so you can come across antelopes feeding just few meters from your terrace, and sometimes even buffalo or leopard (as the escort guy told us). Food is great,...

This is in a good location in the Serengeti, perfect for going on game drives early on or in afternoon. The staff were fantastic with our young daughter. The pool was great to have a late afternoon swim. Food service was very good - great choices at the buffets for each meal and drinks were moderately priced for the location....

Comfortable clean accommodation. Good bed. Quiet. Bathroom satisfactory. Wi Fi rather weak and intermittent. Room safe satisfactory. No fence around property so in darkness escort to and from sleeping hut is necessary. Great views of Serengeti. Good food. Lovely staff. Pool excellent. Nice souvenir shop which sells stamps.

The hotel was the most isolated, but had the warmest staff. There were both single as well as two story cabins, arranged about 50-50 on both side of the office, bar, and dining room. The room was quite large, the shower at floor level. Our single story room looked out on open area where there were about 20 guinea fowl...

High class, clean, friendly, amazing views, close to major wildlife areas. Food significantly above average, nice pool, great service. No fence, so wildlife can enter and wander area. Lodge requires staff escort after dark.

The common areas at this lodge far outweigh the experience you'll have in individual rooms. We enjoyed the pool, the bar, and the views from our rooms - those are top-notch. However, the rooms themselves have two HUGE drawbacks: 1) they are hot as hell and the small desk fan is not enough to cool them down even as the...

What a fabulous setting, views over the Serengeti, excellent food and friendly helpful staff. Sad we were only here for two days and only able to experience the infinity pool once.The vista from the room, which had its own balcony was fantastic and the wildlife were almost in touching distance
