Stayed here in Feb. 2015. One of the nicest places we stayed while on safari. The lake, bush and wildlife, created a beautiful atmosphere, saw the migration hundreds of wildebeest and their young, The Staff were friendly, food excellent, what we liked the most was being able to eat with our guide. If I ever return for another safari I...

We spent one night in this lodge beginning of February for our Honeymoon. The location of this lodge is just perfect in February as it is located in the Ndutu area where the migration is during this month. Although this year the migration was a little bit ahead of its calendar and was already going a bit more west when...

I recently spent several days here while on safari in the areas surrounding the lake and also the Serengeti. I booked via a private guide so I have no comment on the booking process if you go directly with the hotel. The property is lovely! My tent was spacious with both an indoor bathtub and an open air shower. It's...

We stayed here after our first camp in the Tarangire and thought that nothing could beat our first stop. Well this place did! The welcome started with that bush feeling immediately as you are not allowed to walk to or from the car park without a Masai with you as there are many buffalo and zebras on the property... that...

We stayed 3 nights in this wonderful tented camp and this is our favourite camp out of all our holiday. We stayed in 'Duma' tent which has an breathtaking view over lake Masek. The tent is very spacious and luxurious and the 'outdoor' shower is a real bonus. Hair dryer, towels, water, soft dressing gowns and extra blankets are all...

First of all, correction is warranted on the categorization of this property in tripadvisor. This place is not in the ngorongoro conservation area but in the southern serengeti park. Ngorongoro is a ways out - 3-4hrs driving distance. The camp is right in the bush overlooking the lake, drive out a few minutes and you can see pretty much all...

My husband and I are not a fan of camping, but we wanted some type of camping experience while on the safari and this was an amazing experience. The tents are large, clean and beautiful inside, with an outdoor (enclosed) shower, and netting around the tent to prevent bugs from coming in. From the moment we walked in, the service...
