I went to this lodge and couldn't have asked for a better experience to be honest . Such friendly staff and very welcoming as well. There was a pride of lions outside our lodge and the manager called our room to tell us not to go outside . The food and the views were amazing. Even if the price is high it is worth it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good !. All very big and quite .

Having done a 2 week safari with university, staying in some not so pleasant places, spending two nights here was exactly what we all needed! The rooms have a superb view of the plains and the viewing tower and restaurant make full use of this, we even spotted a couple of hyenas whilst having breakfast one morning. Not only is the view fantastic but also the rooms themselves. Being a large group we had a to share rooms and despite being in a group of three girls there was more than enough room in lodge Fisi. The bathroom was amazing with not only an indoor shower but also outdoor shower, allowing two of us to shower at the same time and the temperature or water pressure were both unaffected.
The staff were so friendly and treated us on arrival with big smiles as well as the customary warm towel and welcome juice. They couldn't have gone out of their way any further to help us at all.
One of the highlights of the safari for me was walking back to the room on the first night and being metres away from a pride of about 8 lions. Luckily we had a Masai guide with us.
This place was amazing and I would definitely go back there.

Our trip to Northern Tanzania was organized by the Dutch touroperator named Jambo Safari Club and my wife and I were in the hands of Leopard Tours. We have spent a fortnight in this beautiful part of the country. One of the last days, early January 2014 we had the honour of being one of the first guests of this brand new accomodation. And I would certainly recommend this fine lodge. People are very nice and forthcoming and the food was very good. Nice place to stay a couple of days.

Room Tip: We have only booked one room and that one was good.

The location is almost on the shores of lake ndutu - this is a perfect place for safari in the area. The lodge has a feeling of direct contact with nature. There is no fence and the animals are free to wonder through the site. There is nothing better than waking up at night listening to the voices of the savanna or wake up with roars of lions from a short distance. On the same time it safe and very family friendly. The rooms (very upgraded tents, more like luxury cabins) are superb. Stay there if you can. The staff is excellent and helpful. The food is good but not excellent. Improvement on that spot will upgrade the full rating to excellent.

We stayed at 8 different properties during our trip to Kenya/Tanzania in March this year (2014) and would not recommend this property. The accommodation is "luxury" but we found the meals left much to be desired. A la carte is just a plate full of food with no choice to the consumer placed in front of you and when asked for a choice it is not forthcoming. The staff hovered more like buzzards than attentive staff and it seemed like we had to accommodate them not the other way around. We were not the only ones that complained during our stay. Our tent was rather noisy as it was adjacent to the bar area so not conducive to an early night's sleep.

Thank you for your comments & my apology for your bad experience at the lodge ,apart from being spacious & luxurious we do go into details of guest needs at the service level too,

the new management have initiated all training modules with the lodge staff and have ensured we do not compromise on standards as stated by many of our guest in their reviews.

wish to see you soon to feel the difference
