As we turned off of the Arusha-Moshi Road, little did we have a clue what we would find. The road was indeed one of the worst, but only about 2 blocks in length. When the gate opened what a wonderful surprise! The serenity in the middle of chaos was unbelievable. We were greeted with fresh juice and shown to our room. A wonderful hot shower was the first thing on the docket since we had been volunteering in a small village about an hour away. After that, the bar at the lodge was perfectly stocked. They called us a taxi to take us for Chinese food and negotiated the price with the driver. The breakfast was greatly appreciated... a cheese omlette and a breakfast buffet.
We returned a few weeks later with a family that we were taking on safari. The staff was wonderful with the children. The swimming pool was perfect, along with the popcorn as a mid-afternoon treat! We ate dinner at the lodge and had a wonderful steak dinner complete with all of the trimmings. We can't wait to return next summer.
