I slept with the windows down to get the feel of a real camp out with the luxuries of a bathroom and bed with mosquito net (oh and they also supplied mortein - helped with my mosquito phobia). The food was great and...

It has all the basic amenities and staff is very cordial. Food was average and safari around it was good. We spotted...

OAT was getting us ready for the real deal on the Serengeti. This was a three sided canvas tent that had the back portion solid with a full bathroom at the back end. Nice way to break into real camping. Very clean. The goo was great. The staff was friendly.

Its an enchanting experience to stay here. The staff is very charming and courteous (Specially Jonathan and Steve). The property is full of beautiful trees and gives a feeling of living inside a forest. Their restaurant is lovely. Food is also great with variety of Indian and local dishes. Surprisingly they serve a lot of Vegetarian dishes. Even in breakfast...
