My family and I travelled to Tanzania for a camera safari. Having done the trip two years ago, I was hesitant to have a lodge provide car service so early in the morning after a bad experience. Planet Lodge coordinated a driver and pleasantly they were at the airport when we arrived at 2:30 am. The driver was very helpful. Despite the hour, now close to 4 am, we were greeted at reception and soon found ourselves in a beautiful room with outstanding views. The buildings are designed like Maasai bomas with two rooms per unit. Very quiet as each unit is well distanced from each other.
We spent the next several days at Planet Lodge and found the staff to be warm and friendly. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the food was outstanding. This was a great start to a wonderful time on safari in Tanzania! I would recommend this beautiful hotel to anyone heading to Tanzania.
