We stayed here on 1st July 2012 for just a single night. We were visiting Hadzabe and Datoga tribes and this place provides a perfect location. This indeed is in a dry, dusty and remote area. And this is not a luxury accommodation.
The tents are basic, but the were clean, had beautiful pillow covers and comforters with animal prints, a flushing toilet and running water basin and shower. They had a wooden bed with net and chairs in front of the tent where we saw a beautiful full moon. They have electricity till 9 or 10 pm and they provide solar lamps for the night, which I thought was a cool and environment friendly idea.
They had amazing fireplace area (see pics) which we enjoyed in the night. Nice dining and lunch area.
The food was awesome. They asked us if we were vegetarians on arrival, we said yes, and they heard it wrong. They served dinner thinking we are non-vegetarians and when we said we are vegetarians, they quickly took it away and asked us to wait for 10 mins. The manager came by to apologize. Then they promptly served tasty veggie curry and rice :-) The breakfast next morning was good too. The veggie pasta for lunch was mind blowing..!!!
- The only bad thing was that water in basin & bathroom had a weird smell. I don't have complaints considering it is in a remote area. But, we had to go without bath that morning..!
