just came back from a kenya/tanzania safari trip. we stayed at around 5 different safari lodges/tents, and this one by far had the best service and food! food is near gourmet restaurant quality compared to my hometown, Toronto. Service staff are very friendly, will definitely chit chat with you if you're in the mood, if you're not, they give you just the right amount of attention.
we stayed in room 27 which was a bit of a walk, but you have a great view of lake manyara. the tent was actually amazing, has everything you need and is very spacioius...really you dont feel like you're in a tent. hot shower was awesome (altho lacking in the morning)!! they recommend u bug spray the tent..... i suggest go easy on it. we sprayed around the door and a few key joints in the canvas. spray and go for dinner... else it stinks!
overall, best lodge (even beats serena serengeti which is supppose to be top notch).
