I spent a night in my stay there, it was the most annoying camp i have ever seen, it was on a rainy season and the camp is situated almost 25kms from the tarmac road, on the rainy season it will take you almost 2hours to drive to the camp if your lucky enough that your jeep doesn't get stuck in the mud for the whole day. The camp management is poor, the food not satisfying at all, the rooms are yet the most annoying of all, beds are separated, the toilets aren't clean, no mosquito nets and many other things to disappoint you, i will never recommend you to stay in this place during your holiday, no matter how low your budget is, you better camp at the crater rim than sleeping here, or else your are really excited of being dissapointed. Dont go for this one!!
