Our first stop during a 7 day safari tour. Warm welcome, many hands to carry luggage when one trolley would suffice. Clean hotel with friendly staff and good food. Variety on offer may be limited for some, though for us it was satisfactory as we were more interested in the wildlife at the park. Somewhat distant from the park and... More

This was the first lodge my family and I stayed in during our Kenyan safari, so I didn't really know what to expect. Upon check-in, we were greeted by a traditional Maasai tribe leader (quite tall!) and were given a glass of fruit juice, before being taken to our rooms. There were a group of people waiting to take our... More

The view is very very amazing with the Kilimanjaro just in front of the restaurant. Caution to people who are scared with monkeys. Some families live in the hotel abx they love... More

I recently spent two night here during a safari trip, the food and service were good. The Lodge and rooms need updating and a cote of paint. Internet was very limited, electric was turned off at night, all in all was ok but definitely not a 5 star place.

This lodge was a lovely surprise. Each room is a separate 'hut' with a double bed, mosquito net, ensuite with shower and outdoor veranda with chairs. They are set in beautiful gardens and there are loads of monkeys everywhere. There is a decent sized swimming pool but this seems to only be open in the daytime when most people will... More

The room was vary spacious & the bathroom was also pretty good. Our room had 2 double beds. The toiletries were also pretty decent. Hot water was fantastic. However... More

The only lodge (of three) that was a disappointment. The lodge itself was nice enough although the bathroom door wouldn't close in my room. The room was fairly comfortable. The window frames were loose and rattled with a breeze. A room safe was provided. Toiletries were provided daily. Wifi worked in select spots although not particularly fast. Food was generally...
