We stayed here since Flamingo Hill was full. The lodge looks quite attractive and has a bunch of trees / plants planted by visitors which is a nice idea. Our room was huge but had a lizard or two in it :( with lizard droppings on the bed covers which was a big turn off. Also there was no netting on the windows which cannot be safely kept open at night as anyone can pretty much walk into your room then. We felt quite claustrophobic.
There was a strange lack of toiletries with only a combo shampoo and body wash attached to the shower wall besides some bar soap. No cream or conditioner.
We had a triple room with one single bed and one double bed. Only the double bed had a mosquito net. The mosquito net didnt have a frame making it difficult to lay out.
This is the only hotel Ive stayed in that didn't have a phone in the room! Totally weird.
The dining area is nice as it looks out over the reserve and there is a watering hole frequented by baboons just past the terrace. There is a nicely dressed Masai warrior who roams around the terrace for photo ops.
The dining room itself has a hideous giraffe theme with clashing hexagonal walls. Food was average with minimal veg options. Desert was awful.
The souvenir shop is nice and had some unusual prices especially bird figurines. The pool area has a nice sit down viewing area where you can take in the view.
All in all not a place I'd recommend for the lack of phones, ventilation. Looks pretty but needs more work to make it a good stay option.
