After a difficult start to our safari due to long delays at Addis Ababa airport Maramboi was a fantastic place to stay. We should have been there for 2 nights but due to late arrival had to stay at Arusha. The staff from Maramboi kindly took our picnic lunch to the gate of Tarangire National Park so that we didn't lose any more time. When we actually arrived at Maramboi we were blown away. It is in a beautiful location close to the Lake Manyare and the animals migrate between the two parks so you can sit by the swimming pool and watch wildebeest, zebra, warthog, giraffe and more wander past. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The food is good and the staff welcoming. You can sit around a lovely campfire after dinner and look at the stars.
Our rooms were beautifully appointed. Our three children shared a room with virtually a double bed each! Only small gripe is lack of hot water - more tepid than anything.
We felt cheated that we didn't get our two nights here and would thoroughly recommend it. The best place we stayed in on safari
