We only spent one night here as part of our safari but wished we could have stayed longer. The room was much larger than we expected and trails to the rooms wound through beautiful vegetation. The food was excellent and there was a very nice pool area.

We stayed at Kudu for 1 night after visiting Tarangire, before heading into the Serengeti. The room is situated amongst lush green gardens with the sounds of a myriad of birds. The room was large and well furnished, though there was no fan nor safe. The bed was large and comfortable. The buffet style food at dinner was quite good, but there was no dessert to be had, as it wasn't replenished. There were a few strands of hair on the shower wall that were not mine, otherwise the room was clean. Staff was friendly and attentive.

I stayed at the hotel twice on my safari trip. Everything was A+ at the hotel. My rooms were both huge, clean, comfy and wifi worked well. The size of the room was really luxorius. And bed was the best of all the places I stayed. There are flowers and trees all around and it is wonderfull to walk the paths and listen the birds sing. The pool was fantastic after a long day on the dusty roads in Serengeti. The staff is super nice and everyone will greet you with a big smile. Food was great too.

A great place to reflect and disconnect from the rest of the world! The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The in room fireplace added to the ambience and not having a TV---perfect! Beautiful and peaceful.

We stayed at Kudo Lodge for two days and enjoyed it so much that we spend a third night at the end of our trip. The cottage we had was fabulous and the facilities were really clean. The food was delicious and the staff was fantastic - all in all an amazing experience!

This is a luxurious Lodge with large rooms, comfortable beds, and spacious bathroom and shower. We slept well until the birds woke us early. There was a fireplace in the room complete with wood (and kerosene!) to light the fire, but we did not use it. We relaxed at the pool as we concluded our last day on safari before heading to Zanzibar. this is a really lovely place.

Very nice setting and facilities. Swimming pool surroundings are beautiful. Rooms are real big (70-80 sqm i would say) and well decorated, you can make your own fire in the room’s chimney if you like! Plenty of hot water. No TV nor safe but that’s ok. Wifi works perfectly everywhere. Staff is charming. Restaurant is nicely decorated and food is very tasty. They have a nice looking bar too though we did not test it. Beverages are a bit expensive (same price as in Europe, 5$ for a beer, 10$ for a cocktail) yet this is worth the money considering the place as a whole.
