We stayed at this lodge for 1 nite while on safari in the serengeti. The rooms are small & beds firm. Bathroom is clean & adequate. There is no ac, but it isn't really necessary. You can open your windows, they are screened. The electricity is shut off at different hours of the day, esp. at nite. Hot water is only available certain hrs. of the day. The lodge runs on generators. Not sure why they haven't embraced solar energy. The pool is odd, very deep & difficult to get into, & very cold, not really safe for children. There is a wonderful observation deck that you can see out over the serengeti for miles. That evening, an elephant came by & ripped a tree down to munch on. Also great for sunsets/sunrises. The food is the same typical fare at all the lodges we stayed at on safari; some kind of tough stewed beef/chicken, rice, vegetable, soup, dessert, salad, coffee, teas. We got tired of the same food every nite. Breakfast was a little better, but not sure why they are always serving "beans & weenies" at breakfast all over Tanzania. The lodge is built into a rock formation. Very interesting. Lots of baboons & hyrex hanging around. Be careful of the monkeys; they'll take your stuff if you leave it unattended. The lounge areas are very nice & well appointed. The same type trio of musicians play the same tune over & over again. Would be nice if they would vary it from time to time. Overall, a nice respite from a bumpy day on safari. A hot tub would be a nice addition; solar powered, of course!
