I stayed here for one night in the self-tent area with my Maasai guides. It was lovely. There is a restaurant and bar and you can sit right at the river and watch the animals come down to drink in the evening. There is a nice firepit, which is lit every evening. The food was excellent - and there is coffee and tea available in the morning and afternoon. Peter, the owner, is gracious and helpful.
The tent area has its own showers and pit toilets, but you are welcome to use the flush toilet near the restaurant as well. A nice alternative to the more expensive lodges.
