This is a rather simple lodge with a lot of african ambiance. The rooms are located in buildings that resemble a tree house. The rooms are simply decorated and appropriate to what to expect at a lodge in the african park....Rustic is a good word to describe the setting and decor. The Talek river goes through the property and give great viewing for birds, hippos, lizards and even the sacred baboon! Meal are served buffet style and lacked variety. The same vegetables were offered every day, spicy indian foods and a type of meat. Since we stayed here for several days on our safari, the food got really boring! The location for safari was wonderful and just outside the gates, animals were located in huge varieties. The Maasai tribe was around the corner and a visit there was very interesting and should not be missed if you want to understand the culture and the region. The staff at the hotel was extensive, very helpful and friendly. One night when it rained after dinner; we were escorted under umbrellas back to our room! Hair dryers need to be requested upon check in. The rooms while not fancy, are clean and quiet.The pillows do need to be replaced as they were very flat and there was an issue with the water that was resolved. This is just the sort of place I had expected to find on my trip and the stay was most pleasant!
