From the minute we arrived we were welcomed. We were introduced to staff and shown to our tented lodgings. Little did we know how perfect our accommodations would be and how wonderful it is to be awakened and serenaded by hippos in the river a mere 25 yards away. The four course meals were fantastic and the wake up coffee was presented at just the right time to fuel our days. The lunches made for us on our safari’s were top notch Do not miss this Camp. If you get the opportunity to visit consider yourselves fortunate.
A wonderfully personal, attentive, and considered experience. We will not hesitate to come back. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. From the game drives to the cuisine, every element is expertly executed. The food outdid our expectations. The camp sits in an amazing location in the conservancy, with scores of hippos visible from your luxury tent.
We ended our safari here at Neptune Rianta after flying into Arusha, Tanzania, and staying 2 nights at various Lemala tent camps up to the northern Serengeti. It was the only camp that was fenced. Hippos can be aggressive, and there are leopards here too so fencing is a necessity. Although there are no animals wandering around the camp as in other camps (except for the Mongoose during the day and Dik-Diks at night), we were more than happy to experience camping with the hippos! It was the reason for selecting this camp (along with the luxury accomodations) and we were not disappointed. Our tent was at the end of camp and the perfect viewing of one hippo family. It was great to watch other hippos sneaking over and causing a raucous! Such organize chaos with these creatures and the night-time drama was so entertaining. Our family didn't want to leave. Our dining experience was superb - props to Ezra, who made us feel so special and really was the consummate professional. He went out of his way to accommodate our wishes, thank you! The cuisine was exquisite and beautiful. Plating was perfect. I especially liked the Tilapia and soups. The spa was great thanks to Grace and Rose who gave amazing deep-tissue massages, wow! You can look at the photos and understand why one feels so spoiled here. The tents are very high-end as are the camp furnishings. The gift shop was very nice also. Neptune Rianta would be a great place to stay for a vacation - we used it at the end of our safari, but I could definitely see us coming back for a week-long stay. A+ to the chef and staff.…

We've been coming here every year for the last 6 years, and each time we come it's so special. We spent 3 nights here this August and it was still as incredible as always. The tents are spacious, luxurious and really well maintained. The service was spot on. I can't fault a thing, and we will keep coming back each year. Asante sana Wesley and the rest of the team!
