Couldn't fill more spoilt. My husband and I went there after 6 days of work in Nairobi. We had an amazing Masai guide (Lang) how had at great knowledge about the wildlife, our butler Evens did everything too please us and made a lot of surprises. All the staff was amassing and extremely kind. I also had a wonderful massage, down by the river where I could here the hippos hanging out.
The wildlife was amassing, even though we weren't there in high season. When we came back from our afternoon trip there fire was lit in the open fireplace and the tub filled :-)
We give this lodge our warmest recommendation and hope to get back soon with our 3 children.
