I wrote a review about our visit to this Campsite in November 2015. There were a number of errors which, subsequent to my research, I would like to correct and re-present my new review. Many Travel Companies and Guides continue to make the same errors, calling the Dinner a Maasai Dinner when in reality, it is Wahehe Dinner! The Wahehe... More

Wonderful place to relax! I enjoyed every minute of my stay. The service was excellent! Very friendly and helpful staff. Special thanks to the lodge owner Nicola Ghaui and her staff (leylla, David and Sungurai) I would absolutely recommend Kisolanza Farm. The place is perfect for those who want to run away from the noise and stress! I definitely look... More

Rooms built with brick walls under thatch, fireplace, soft duvets, energy conscious systems. Tasteful restaurant. Food well prepared and served. Gorgeous and healthy breakfast. Beautiful garden with diverse trees and bird-life. A great oasis to relax in the nature on a farm. I would give it five stars if they had taken more initiative to provide a small farm life... More

Our only regret is that we arrived at this Campsite, very late in the night.We had a wonderful candle light dinner, presented us by the staff. This was the best campsite we stayed at during our entire Nomad Tour safari from Victoria Falls to Nairobi. The toilets were the cleanest and ecologically friendly. It was so sad that we were...

Outdoor toilets were also clean and well maintained, lots of room for people camping. We were with a large group, they cooked us a traditional Maasai Dinner. It was excellent ! Fantastic soup, we...

I upgraded here to have an en-suite and got so much more. Wonderful staff that helped you to your room with your luggage. There was a beautiful shower and toilet and the bathroom was huge. It was a two bedroom bungalow and two single beds in one room and a big double/queen in the main room with a fire place... More
