While I wasn't expecting anything luxurious, I must admit that I was a little disappointed with Olduvai, given the cost per night, I felt that there were too many staff hanging around which made me unable to properly relax. I also thought that the dinners were pretty average. All in all, I understand that we were paying for location, but apart from the location, i cannot see where the large amount we paid to stay at Olduvai is going, it is certainly not reflected in the food or the ambience. Other campers we talked to also shared the same opinion, We also stayed at the Ronjo camp during our safari and found it much more relaxed, less staff hanging around, the food was better and on a whole it was much more cosier.
