the outpost, upon arriving, one thinks you are perhaps lost. the road (if you can call it that) is full of potholes, bumpy and very very narrow. however, that is about the only negative thing for this small hotel. rooms are airy and nice. this is not a 4 or 5 star, but definitely a good place to stay. mosquito netting on/over beds, hot water showers even if the city has the water turned off. they have there own tower with water, and I believe they have there own generator also. the price of 60 to 65 a night, includes a breakfast buffet. you get coffee, tea, ceral (hot or cold) toast, fresh fruit (I had banana, pineapple and watermelon) and egg omelet cooked in front of you. also got one sausage with breakfast (I did not like them). you could get bacon, but that would be an extra charge. the lunch and dinners were good. the swimming pool area was a delight to sit around and read, swimming looked fun - I forgot to bring my suit as I was on a safari. most of the travelers staying here were there for either a safari or to hike to mt kilamajaro. English spoken and all very easy to understand. if you are going on a safari a great place to stay. it was about a 15 minute walk or so to the market place for goods and fruits. taxis available, but no local bus.
