We spent one night at Naitolia after walking across the Conservation Area with Masai guide from Lemooti village. After four nights of bush camping with limited water, the outside bucket shower at Naitolia was un -heard of luxury. We had a massive bed with clean crisp sheets and cover. The early morning dawn chorus was our wake up call, Brian... More

We have recently stayed at Naitolia for three nights. We have visited here before and are pleasantly surprised about how it has changed since it has become protected from overgrazing. The wilderness experience here is so different to anywhere I have ever stayed. The main attraction here for us is the birds...so many different varieties! Anyone interested in birds should... More

What a lovely place - completely in the bush but with comfortable and eco-friendly amenities. We had a lovely Christmas Eve there. Staff was wonderful, nice bedding, and it was so close to all of the nature. Great walks around the area with a Masai guide.

This was a very peaceful lodge in its own conservation area. Beautiful, grassed rooms, with an outside toilet and shower. The feature of the lodge are the walks and night game drives. On the walk we saw elephants and zebra grazing. During the night game drive there were bat eared foxes,spring hares, wild cats, genet cats,owls, and Impala very close... More

This review is from last January...it is overdue. We stayed here for one night on our two week trip. We were the only ones at the camp. I don't know if it was the time of year...but there was no wildlife around the camp. The food was good camp food and the accommodations were very nice and comfortable. I also... More

These clients actually stayed at Naitolia in February 2013. They did write reviews of some of the other accommodations they stayed on safari at the time, i.e. 20 months ago, all excellent. Bit surprised this review has now come up 20 months later, with incorrect date of stay. Difficult on trekking safaris to guarantee wildlife. As with another recent reviewer... More

We stayed here one night while on safari and it was a very different, but beautiful lodge. The staff were great and food excellent. There were elephants everywhere walking around our thatched banda, on the roads and drinking out of the dam across from the camp. The highlight was the wild dogs we saw while on our early mornng trek,... More

After a 25 minute bumpy drive off the main road into Naitolia on what is best described as a track and where our guide got lost a couple times we arrived to a beautifully secluded eco-lodge. We were fortunately the only guests there. The lodge seemed to be managed and maintained by two men who did a fantastic job of... More

We stayed 2 nights here in September as part of a 30 day Uganda and Tanzania trip with Eastco. This lodge and Ol Tukai where we also stayed for 2 nights were the highlight of the trip.
