This is a lovely property, with sweeping views of the Serengeti. The rooms are nice, and the shower is great. We just missed the migration, but I understand the location is perfect if the timing is right for the animals to come right thru. We could hear the animals at night outside our tents - exactly what you think while on safari in Africa. The major downside was the food. It simply wasn't good, although the staff was pleasant. Also, the hotel runs off of solar power, providing supplemental power from a generator a few hours each nite to charge camera batteries, etc. The window to charge is very narrow, and it would be better if the hotel could extend this slightly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located outside Serengeti National Park’s Ikoma Gate with endless views across the plains. Built of local materials and using solar power and hot water in the rooms, this lodge is unique to the area. Reception, lounge, bar and dining incorporate a natural rocky outcropping (kopje) into the design. Fifteen creatively designed large canvas rondavels reveal the romance of a tent with the security of a permanent structure. Each bathroom has an outdoor stone shower. Family rooms are in a ‘stone house’ with equally impressive views. ... more less
