Not as nice as Serengeti Sopa, but better than Tarangire Sopa, this lodge has a great location near the crater. Food very good, just not as well maintained as Serengeti Sopa. On the whole, I would recommend.

I don't recall specifically but we did drink so they couldn't have been overly expensive - I'm kind cheap and Canadian so everything in US$ was that much more. :) The popcorn and nuts were free though. :)
