The service at the reception was very friendly but the food sucks! Real poor quality of food and the service at their restaurant. We were not served tea and coffee at the breakfast in spite of content reminders! Even the butter was not available for the breads. It's not worth staying.

The camp has a warm reception by the staff.You will feel at home and especially the Maasai receptionist.The rooms are in good shape and the water is hot after a long drive or the dusty game drive.Most of the tents are facing Mt.Kilimanjaro and when clear the view is fantastic.The watchtower is a place to climb and see far away...

This resort is beautiful! The tent camps were even nicer than the last & we thought those were nice! The dining area & bar are open aired areas, much neede with the hot sun! Hair dryers are available if you ask reception. There was a nature walk done by a Maasai. The pool was wonderful, even better than the Fairmont... More

Arrived with my wife late in the evening after a long drive from Nairobi. The reception was very good, their delightful staff took our baggage and were kind enough to usher us to have dinner even before checking us in. The rooms here are big and luxuriously furnished. The room design was well done to blend into the environment. It... More

I went to this place with another family in October. I was very disappointed with the facilities. The rooms were dirty, the flush was not working in my room and a number of lights were not working in the room. In fact, a couple of lamps were not even plugged, just wires hanging out, which was unsafe. Only go to... More

We arrived in Kenya and this was our first stay. Very welcomed and comfortable stay. We had one tent sharing between the four of us ...two adults and our two sons (age 13 and 10). The tent is good size and they fit extra beds very comfortably. The view of Mount Kilimanjaro is beautiful if the day is clear. The... More

I was on Safari in Kenya, travelling to 3 different camps as part of a package tour. I was pleasantly surprised when I was taken to my "tent" . I had no idea how nice it would be . The photos online do not do it justice. A huge bathtub front and centre surrounded by 2 sinks and a walk... More

This is a lovely camp with all you need for a comfortable stay. Great food and service. unfortunately for us Kilimanjaro was under cloud for for three days, but our wonderful experiences in the park made up for missing that view. It was disappointing to see that business is slow due to problems in Mombasa, but tourists can travel there... More

Yes the rooms are great, some of them could need a little TLC, but they are luxury for what I was expecting, the views and the surroundings make for with, the friendly and helpful staff. Amazing views for Mont Kilimanjaro. Nice and lots of food. could help that my group... More
