We arrived at Lake Burunge after a very long and very bumpy drive from Amboseli. None of us was feeling too chipper, but 5 minutes with the manager and a great "moon" shower soon put us back on track. The dining and lounge area has an attached deck that has spectacular views of the lake. The lighting for meals is a little dim in the evening so you need to ask what your looking at in the buffet line. The food was very good and had some local staples like ugale. Excellent breakfasts as well. We stayed in the lodge rooms, not the tents. The rooms are a little out of date, but they have a great shower and the beds are very comfortable.
