We got a ensuite room for $65 although they asked for $80. Even so it way overpriced. They boast hot water showers and electricity which we really wanted after a week of bush camping in the Serengeti. Problem: the hot water only works with electrcity and the electricity was off for most of the day when we arrived. They have... More

We stayed the night and had a national citizen with us. They charged him less than $15 for his room and we were quoted $32 US for ours. When we went to pay they charged us $32 each for the one room I shared with my spouse for a total of $64 US dollars. The room our national friend stayed... More

This is a budget accommodation closely located to the Serengeti Ndabaka gate. Place is not well maintained. Even hot water system didn't work in our room. Not bad as a stop over to Serengeti National park.

This place looks from the road a bit poor as signposted by a beaten up sign which also displays an advert for Coka Cola but dont be put off by that it is worth the visit. Rooms are cheap and clean albeit somewhat basic but what you need is there, with hot water. The site itself isquite pleasant and you... More

This hotel was clean, welcoming and situated close to the park entrance. The staff were friendly and very happy to help us with any special requests that we had. The rooms are functional, if not very exciting, but for the money they do exactly what you need. I could recommend this hotel to anyone.

I had long planned to visit this place on the western edge of the Serengeti where you can also enjoy the facilities of lake Victoria. I was not disappointed. Situated on the tar road from Mwanza to Misumu and almost adjacent to the Ndabaka Gate of the Serengeti it is a convenient place to spend a few days. Accommodation is... More

The place are a bit rundown but rooms are clean and food are really great. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and try to help where ever they can. A good place to stay when travelling to or from the Serengeti.

We camped at the Serengeti Stopover Lodge on June 10th. At $13 per person, the Stopover Lodge was a welcome respite from the exorbitant $30 per head price charged for camping inside the Tanzanian National Parks. The Stopover Lodge had hot water, clean grounds, and a restaurant, which is more value for your shilling than you get at the national... More

It is a good stop over. You do not want to stay there many nights but the bandas and camp side are fine. I bit run down but still clean enough. Staff is helpful and food is fine. It is easy to find and you do not have to make a detour.
