I don't know how to explain it but both me and my fiancé felt this lodge had a cold ambience and feel to it.
We went to several lodges for our safari in Kenya and all of them were warm and inviting, but this one gave us a different feeling.
Perhaps it was the fact that the reception felt like a military sign-up office, the staff uniform looking a bit like military gear, the white straight lines of all the rooms and restaurant or maybe the fact that the rooms were freezing cold. We just didn't feel at home and I know that sounds stupid, but maybe someone finds it useful anyway.
The food was ok, but not great. I did like the fact that one of the chefs seemed to be proud of his cooking, that is great for improving and getting even better.
Service of the security personell was great and one took us to see the hippo at night.
i liked the fact that you could see zebras and water bucks from your room every day.
it was an ok experience staying here, i am unsure wheter we would choose this place again.
We stayed two nights and booked through a travel agent so I don't know how much they paid for the room.
