This place looks from the road a bit poor as signposted by a beaten up sign which also displays an advert for Coka Cola but dont be put off by that it is worth the visit. Rooms are cheap and clean albeit somewhat basic but what you need is there, with hot water. The site itself isquite pleasant and you... More

This hotel was clean, welcoming and situated close to the park entrance. The staff were friendly and very happy to help us with any special requests that we had. The rooms are functional, if not very exciting, but for the money they do exactly what you need. I could recommend this hotel to anyone.

I can really recommend to stay at this hostel. Really friendly staff, affordable rooms, good food! We also went on a one-day safari with them which was a fantastistic experience! You will get good value for the money you spend!

I had long planned to visit this place on the western edge of the Serengeti where you can also enjoy the facilities of lake Victoria. I was not disappointed. Situated on the tar road from Mwanza to Misumu and almost adjacent to the Ndabaka Gate of the Serengeti it is a convenient place to spend a few days. Accommodation is... More

The place are a bit rundown but rooms are clean and food are really great. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and try to help where ever they can. A good place to stay when travelling to or from the Serengeti.

We camped at the Serengeti Stopover Lodge on June 10th. At $13 per person, the Stopover Lodge was a welcome respite from the exorbitant $30 per head price charged for camping inside the Tanzanian National Parks. The Stopover Lodge had hot water, clean grounds, and a restaurant, which is more value for your shilling than you get at the national... More

It is a good stop over. You do not want to stay there many nights but the bandas and camp side are fine. I bit run down but still clean enough. Staff is helpful and food is fine. It is easy to find and you do not have to make a detour.

We ended up staying two nights here because our jeep broke down on the edge of the Serengeti and a passing car dropped us off here to safety. It's a regular washroom and cold drink stop for cars passing through, but a pretty wretched spot to stay. The rooms were simple, the mattresses thin and the beds creaked enough to... More

We rang ahead from Bukoba en-route from Uganda to the Serengeti and tried to organise a serengeti safari through Serengeti Stop over Lodge. The Bradt book says that they are good for organising budget safaris there with 4x4 with driver costing US$150 or so per day, and are well located just outside the park beside the ndabaka gate. We tried... More
