Stayed here for a night on a safari which took us through Kenya and Tanzania. John (manager) and his staff were the most welcoming and accommodating people we stayed with on our travels. The food was excellent and the room we stayed in (Chui) had a nice traditional feel and a good hot shower! The only thing the room could... More

The Chicken Marsala was tender, and... More

Lodge is well situated for Lake Manyara NP (which was the hidden gem of our 10 day safari across Kenya and Tanzania). The accommodation is rustic (think rural cottages and a few cobwebs) but well appointed. John the manager is beyond helpful (what a man!) and the food was delicious.. some of the best we've had in Africa. Great stay... More

The lodge is just steps away from the town and is a perfect little getaway, for a very reasonable price. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean. The showers were hot, and the food was well-prepared. Good wifi in the restaurant and bar area.

We thought we were getting a nice romantic getaway for a great price, but we definitely got what we paid for...the price was definitely too good to be true! The food was the worse part. They actually cut the bread rolls in half and meals were mostly cheap starches with very small portions of protein. The owners sat on the... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this lodge during my travel of Africa. It was a homely experience with personal attention to my stay.

No drinking water on the premises set the tone for the planned stay. Pool with something resembling water from another era and barely warm water in the shower - the stay was very different to what was expected from the website and previous recommendations from this site.
