We stayed for 2 nights as part of our sky safari. The main building is stunning and we spent a great evening on the sunset deck having drinks watching the sun set and then continuing around the fire pit. The only thing that these rooms have in common with a typical tent is that they are made of canvas. The floors are wooden and there are glass doors out to the deck. We kept the curtains open to watch dawn break. Whilst we could hear the hippos all night, we couldn't see them from our tent. As well as noisy hippos we had hyrax (like big guinea pigs) noisily running all over the tent all night which takes some getting used to. On heading for breakfast the first morning we found a giraffe and a family of wart hogs along the way, along with the eponymous hyrax.
Breakfast on the terrace had amazing views.
We had 2 days of great game viewing with Stan and Elias and were lucky enough to see the migration in central Serengeti (a long drive but well worth it).
Like all the other Elewana properties we stayed in, this one was truly spectacular, but we agree with a previous reviewer that this one doesn't quite match up with regards to service. Good luck to Lauren and Ryan in fixing the few small things that need fixing.
