This lodge had a lovely feel and was very well run. The staff were obliging and bar staff "Mgini" was quiet a character.
The bar for "sundowners" offerred a bushy outlook and some great viewing and photo opportunities of the local bird-life.
The buffet selections for breakfast and dinner were of an exceptional standard. However the picnic boxes could be vastly improved upon.....our only fault with the lodge.
The accommodation was very comfortable offerring a traditional thatched hut, complete with verandah. Guards were required to escort guests back to their rooms after dark as a safety precaution, but one never felt endangered. It was quite a treat being in such a tranquil setting.
The gift shop was excellent and offerred a good selection of books and African Handicrafts.
The hotel offerred the service of downloading photo's to CD, which helped us immensely. The biggest camera card for sale at the gift shop was 512MB, so we recommend you have sufficient camera cards before commencing safari's.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here and would recommend the lodge without hesitation when visiting the Seronera Area of the Serengeti. We viewed many more animals in this area of Serengeti in July than in the northern region. We were lucky to see many hippo's and lions, plus a lion kill and cubs, 4 cheetahs, 1 leopard
and much more. Fab game-viewing.
There is an air-strip close to this lodge for chartered flights.
Whilst at the lodge, The Management and Staff were the recipients of an "Award of Excellence" for the highest standards in the Serengeti. We congratulate them and highly recommend the lodge. The Manager, reception, bar and kitchen staff make an excellent team.
