Boundary Hill is spectacular. We stayed for 3 nights at the end of our safari and loved every minute. Each room is a separate cabin built into the hillside, with a balcony looking out towards Kilimanjaro and the sunrise.
The staff are exceptional and can't do enough to help you (or feed you!). You can do as much or as little as you want - we went on a game walk with the Masai, had an arrow-shooting session, went on a night drive and still found time to relax and unwind.
Some of the negative reviews on here seem to be mainly due to the lack of home comforts (electricity, tarmac roads etc!). Remember this is Africa, and to enjoy the unspoilt views and secluded setting the Lodge has to be remote! There are solar powered lights in the rooms, hot water, and if you need anything charged there is a generator so the staff will happily charge stuff for you in the dining area.
I would recommend staying here to anyone who gets the chance - particularly if you prefer somewhere more relaxed and quiet than the larger lodges available.
Thanks to everyone at Boundary Hill for an amazing time - especially Saif and Danny!
