We passed by little villages with kids waving and smiling at us, through banana and coffee fields and up a great road with awesome views of the forest, valleys and the kilimanjaro! Arriving at the lodge we... More

The views were spectacular- if you're after a view then this is definitely the place to stay. Unfortunately it is quite a drive to the closest town... More

We went on safari to Serengeti and spent the last day and night here in October 2013. Great time talking to the staff. Food was outstanding. We were treated like royalty. The locals sang to us and gave us gifts. Early morning view of Kili awesome. We didn't want to leave but had to catch our plane back to California.... More
