We went on safari for our honeymoon and in Tanzania stopped at three locations: Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. The rooms at all the locations we stayed were relatively comparable - clean, camp styled, relatively basic but undoubtedly comfortable. My understanding is that this is standard in the area and, given this, the rooms at the Eco Lodge were perfect. The beds were very comfortable and, while my husband did find a spider our first night, I think it unreasonable to expect nature can be completely eliminated in a tented lodge. In fact, one of my favorite things was falling asleep to the sound of the wildebeest that were just outside our camp. After long days out on safari, our cabin was a terrific place to come back to and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

What we liked best about the Eco Lodge, however, was its staff, common spaces and general surroundings. A young British woman was helping to manage the lodge and she was incredibly helpful. She was also good friends with the various staff members who were incredibly friendly and kind, giving this small lodge a very communal and homey feel. What added to this was the simple yet inviting bar and lounge porch where we would have drinks after a long day as well as the dining room that was similarly open to the air. The staff would light fires in the pit just off the dining area and, as the sun set, the smell of fresh air and fire mixed with the sounds of the outdoors have left us with unforgettable memories.

Logistically, the camp is far out into the bush and a decent distance to the Ikoma Gate of the Serengeti. I had initially been concerned about this before we booked our honeymoon but I learned two things: (1) many great camps are far from the gate (for example, the lux Faru Faru lodge was within eye sight of the Eco Lodge) and (2) the remoteness that you seek in lodges such as this inevitably comes with longer distance and rough roads. Only in retrospect did I realize that even though the Seregeti "park" is the attraction, it makes absolutely no difference if you're in the park itself. We always saw the most animals near water, and there are various rivers and streams around the Eco Lodge that make for the same, if not at times better, game viewing.

Overall, the Eco Lodge was a terrific stay and a wonderful experience. We would recommend it for all who are not deterred by a spider in the room or African dirt roads.

After a long day driving we arrived at the amazing Eco Lodge Africa, just outside the park. It is the savannah of Africa!
we stayed two nights. The rooms are very luxury and nothing is missing, shower is fantastic. The most exiting is: 'the sound of the nature' especially during the night. We did the sunset at a special place on top of a hill, also we did a night game drive, which was very exiting. A walk through the savannah with an armed guide and some Maasai worriers was also amazing.
We can recommend the eco lodge very much, staff is very friendly especially Joseph and the food is excellent. The most exiting was that there are no roads, so you have the possibility to approach the game very close. The nearby Grumeti river with the hippos and crocodiles are so impressive...........We saw thousands of game more than in the park!

After a hugely long drive from the Ngorongoro crater we finally found some peace and quiet at the Eco Lodge. The setting is incredible where lions roar at night and wildebeest silently continue their migration down to the Grumeti river. There is a beautiful pool and loungers. The first two nights we had a really nice selection of food, all hot and beautifully presented. The last night was not good - there were only six people staying that night so no buffet and therefore less choice. The packed lunch was good on the first day and really disappointing on the second day. The tent was beautiful inside but the mosquito nets were not good and there were holes in the tent itself. Luckily we didn't have trouble with mosquitos while we were there. We did have a couple of large spiders in the room so if you don't like entertaining them, tented camps might not be for you. Two people in one tent means that if both are showering in the evening, there isn't much warm water left in the morning as it is heated by solar power. There's a lovely fire at night and very friendly guards walk you back to your tent in the dark. It's a great experience - highly recommend it

Room Tip: A room on the front line will give un-interrupted views of the reserve, but even those further back have great views. Please be quiet at night as voices travel a long way

Stayed here for our honeymoon in September and I honestly don't think we could have selected anywhere better for the price. The tent/room was amazing and allowed us to sit outside and watch zebra/elephant/wildebeest etc. going about their business.

The lodge is located outside the Serengeti Park to the west, in the Grumeti game reserve, not far from the Grumeti River about 30 minutes from Ikoma Gate. Our driver did actually get lost trying to find it as the sun was going down which made for an interesting experience.

Our tent did actually feel like a mini luxury house however it was the furthest from the camp and furthest out into the wild which made things interesting, especially at night. The 2nd night we were woke up in the night by guards and a lot of noise outside the tent, seems an elephant had been just yards away by the tree as we were sleeping.

It was a great experience to watch all the elephants walking over to the river in the morning whilst going for dinner in the dark was made all the more interesting by the fact that we had to open the door and whistle for the guards first who would come along and shine torches into the bush and the dark to check for any unwanted visitors waiting outside our tent.

I only wish we had come back early from our days in the Serengeti as the Grumeti Reserve was lush green from all the water and teeming with wildlife to watch.

The food was good and was probably the only area which wasn't fantastic but it was good, however given the location, I suspect it may be difficult to get the best trained chefs and the best food sources.

The location won it for me though, there seemed barely anyone else there when we stayed, so we truly felt remote in Africa.

Room Tip: Ask for a lodge close to the wildlife, experience it up closer!!

In the middle of the bush, just outside the serengeti (at grumeti gate) we found this new lodge. luxury permanent tents just meters away from the game.....what a feeling!
The food (we had the veggie dishes since meat in african restaurants is not the best choice often) was excellent and more than enough. We enjoyed the campfire as well as the pool. A short swim after a dusty safari is a great way to unwind...
Staff was over friendly, wines were good, one of my favourites in tanzania!
