Just opened for 8 months, the Kitela Lodge is quite an experience, with huge rooms and bathrooms. The Resort has all the amenities one can ask for while on safari in Tanzania. We met the owner, Mr. Willie, who hires local people, and has a beautiful farm and coffee plantation near the resort. He and his staff are just so hospitable and friendly.
I would say that the quality and variety of the food could be better. Of course, all beverages, including alcoholic, are plantiful and FREE! And the coffee is also excellent. Free internet, plus free laundry makes your stay here quite nice.
