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

We really enjoyed our time (2 nights) at this camp. The accommodation was most comfortable and whilst we were there in the dry season and the vegetation around us was lifeless, the view to Mt Kilimanjaro is beautiful. Great viewing platform too to enjoy watching the animals in the surrounds. The bar and restaurant areas are a great place to... More

This camp could do with a revamp. At first glance the room with its spacious bathroom looks comfy but once we started settling in we found broken lampshades with broken lamps and tired bed linen. The staff are friendly and accommodating and int short space of time we were there we had to get them to fix our fan, unblock... More

Actually visited this camp twice in the past three months with family. Very nice and quiet with friendly staff. I spent several hours in the viewing tower just watching the beauty of the scenery and visiting with other tourists. Mount Kilimanjaro is just an amazing view. Staff was friendly and helpful, food was very tasty, and rooms were clean with... More

Had 3 day, 2 night stay at basic but nice hotel with spectacular 360 degree views from 3 story viewing tower. Rooms are simply furnished but clean and nice. Our bathroom area was clean and well stocked. Showers were wonderful after a dusty day seeing the wild game. Had fabulous view of Mt Kilimanjaro right from our private room porch.... More
