We visited bougainvillea for 1 night. Had a great dinner, but in the Morning a big amount of money was missing. When we were leaving we asked the reception to bring our backpacks and told her that we were going for a quick breakfast. So she did and the backpacks were waiting for us at the chairs outside. Unfortunately, When we opened our backpacks our envelop with big amount of dollars disappeared out of the Backpack and the other Backpack was searched (for money?). In shock we told the hotel and they told us to check our bagage again and that they would check with their staff. 24hours later they kept saying it must be in our bags, which was not the case. Ofcourse we already checked it 10 times. We dont know who take the money, but that we had it that morning in the room and that is dissappeared at bourgaiville is a fact. For other travelers: please walk with your backpacks. For the hotel: better services would be if you would take us serious and If you transfer bags that you constantely have them in sight (inside with reception instead of outside).

We stayed here for 2 non-consecutive nights on the way to / return back from Ngorongoro and Serengeti. We found the location very convenient and the rooms / amenities / food very good. There is very decent WiFi in the common area and my kids enjoyed the pool area after several dusty and hot days of game drives. Highly recommend this location. Professional staff and good food.

Visiting Ngorongoro takes the whole day so it is obviously advisable to have accommodation close to the crater. This accommodation is decent, rooms are good and attention by staff perhaps the best thing about the lodge.
