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.

We camped here in our own tent - the staff were friendly and very welcoming, the facilities were great and the food at the restaurant was delicious! A great place to stop and stay before heading on the short drive in to Ngorongoro Conservation area.
