We stayed here at the start of our safari in Tanzania. First the plusses: its a beautiful location with a good view of the lake Burunge. And the staff try their utmost to make you feel at home: no it isn't the Waldorf, but they are helpful and friendly.
Our bungalow was clean, had all the facilities and everything was in fine working order, perfect after a long day in the car.
The food was ok: not brilliant, but plenty of it :).
We experienced no problems with paying in the local Tanzanian shillings, and the drinks prices were ok.
One thing to note though: if you don't like tour groups, stay away. This camp is a favorite of US OAT groups etc. No big problem, but not our thing...doesn't make it very romantic.
