We booked a 7-day safar with Access2Tanzania and stayed here the first night. Lovely rooms, clean and comfortable with all the basic amenities including nice bathroom and mosquito netting. The pool looked inviting and the proprietress made us feel like family. They had a dining / lounge room and bar adjoining the pool.
Additionally, since I can't find a place to post a review on our safari company in Tanzania, I can't wait to say what a wonderful trip we just had with Access2Tanzania. We returned a week ago from a 7-day safari. Here's one amazing example: We originally planned to spend 1 nights in the Serengeti (mobile camp) and 2 nights in the Western Corridor hoping to hit the tail end of the wildebeest migration. However, due to a recent rain, the migration was still in the Serenget and NO animals were in the Western Corridor to speak of. We didn't know this but Access2Tanzania did and changed our mobile camp sites for the last 2 nights to the Serengeti so we could enjoy the wonderful animals a little longer. The accomodations were wonderful -- all with en suite toilets -- and mobile camp sites in the Serengeti helped us become more a part of Africa -- sitting around the campfire and listening to the lions roar at night. The food was delicious, the service impeccable and our guide, Rogathe, made our visit a "once in a lifetime". He seemed to know where the "unusual" animals were and we experienced animal adventures that were once in a lifetime -- including escorting two lioness and their 5 small kittens to a local watering hole. We could have reached down and petted them. All this at a value price -- I know because I spent one month researching site and contacting safari companies before I decided to go with Access2Tanzania. A brilliant choice ... if I do say!
