This place has an incredible spirit of togetherness. As soon as we arrived, they made us feel at home with a welcome drink and traditional music dance. We were lucky to meet the Director who was very friendly and interactive. The food was very tasty and making you want more. Definitely recommend this home of natural coffee and beautiful views

The hotel is moderate, but very good for a one night stay (there's no AC or wifi in the room). The personnel is extremely nice, so it compensates the quality of the room. 😊 It's nice to eat at the restaurant terrace and sitting by the open fire just next to the terrace was a nice experience.

We were happy to arrive at Highview Hotel after a long drive from Serengeti. Finding Laizer and his team waiting for us with refreshments and a face towel was a great start to our wonderful stay. Dinner was great and we ate to our fill. Service at the restaurant and bar was excellent too. I have to commend the staff, they are really nice and made our time special. Our double room was perfect, the bed cozy and very neat. We slept so peacefully that night. It's a nice stopover on safari with wonderful hosts.

A very nice setting, but unfortunately the accommodation is very poor, particularly the bathrooms which are essential a narrow space at the end of the room. More importantly the showers were dreadful like warm and very poor pressure. The food was pretty poor too im afraid. However credit where due the team, especially reception, were just superb, a smile and genuinely wanting to help.

This was our main base for our Safari We spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The food was great with so much choice! Super accommodating to an early breakfast service so we could get out in the jeep and enjoy an early start at the national parks. Entertainment on every night after food service which was a great touch and the staff are brilliant here. Definitely a great base for our Safari tour.
