This is a very nice place to stay in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The rooms are large equipped with a great bathroom with lots of hot water; a fireplace in the living room; comfortable netted beds and a beautiful view of the coffee plantation and gardens. There was a large deck off of our room with comfortable chairs where you could just sit and relax. The furnishings of the room were all well appointed and comfortable. There was a plantation nd garden tour which I am afraid we were just too tired to take in. There was also a Masai dance show with audience precipitation which was good and a lot of fun.
Dinner was buffet style and very good. Lots of choice and very comfortable surroundings. Breakfast was also in the dining room and buffet style. If you couldn't find what you wanted there you must be a very picky person!!
The shop had some very interesting and decently priced items for sale. Did a little shopping there but wished I had more time to shop a bit more.
