F+B good, breakfast need some attention, creativity missing Rooms are sufficient Electricity policy not acceptable, Power only from 6 pm. If you back from safari eg 4 pm your sit in darkness for two hours. For people want to relax in their rooms not very romantic

This hotel is located on magnificent grounds inside the national park, has stand alone spacious comfortable villas with ample room and lovely atmosphere, and has a surrounding electric fence to keep the wild animals out. Elephants were frequently seen within 30 metres of the fence. Of course the fence does not stop the baboons, who frequent the grounds. There were... More

This is the perfect location to view Mount Kilimanjaro when the weather is clear in the morning. This intimidating view of the giant right from the lodge was very breathtaking to everybody in our group.

The lodge is quite big. Rooms are small, but nice. The view over the swamp almost guarantees that you can watch elefants. Unfortunately they have not created a space where you can view Mt. Kili. This one is mostly covered by trees from all the places where you can sit. Staff is very nice and efficient. Food is buffet style.... More

We stayed here two nights on our safari journey. The room we had, although small, was quite comfortable. We could see elephants walking past the fence not far from us.

This time, however, probably because of weekdays and a small number of the guests at the lodge as a result... More
