We went through the Ngorongoro crater then to the Serengeti and Makasa provided a great experience. They were very flexible with times and lengths of drives as we had two young kids with our party.

They do have ensuite toilets and showers. Power just a few hours a day and most of the time solor. Enough for some lights and to charge camera and other electronics. For any more questions, feel free to email me.
