Gorgeous! Otherworldly! We arrived at the airstrip and were whisked off the the lodge by Joseph, who would be our ranger for our stay. The drive from the airstrip to the lodge was long, but beautiful. It was quite misty and foggy, which obstructed the views as we made our way along. We were greeted by staff members singing. Very...

So please take this review with a grain of salt. Pros: 1) Lodging: The rooms are quite stately and very, very elegant. Starting with the bed, it is a king with some of the softest linen you will find in Africa. The rooms are built out of warm colored wood, which makes you just want to curl up and relax...

When you walk into the main building your breath is taken away. It has chandeliers in every room. You go directly into a meeting room that has crystal decanters filled with sherry, and is served in crystal goblets. This is where everyone meets before dinner. The room is filled with many antiques, and amazing stories. You feel at home, not...

A truly amazing place with unique characteristics because of the good supply of water and therefore lack of animal migration This hotel is lying on the edge of the crater with views that has to be experienced to be understood.
