The approach to the lodge was through a sketchy (more ratchet than dangerous) area and the road was filled with potholes however once inside the lodge, it seemed very safe (despite the plethora of mosquitos swarming at us). The rooms are cottage style- two rooms for each hut. The gardens were very well maintained and the pool looked very nice. They had a choice of Indian, Chinese, Italian, etc. on their menu cards all with an African flare. The food was ok. The breakfast was very basic. The waits for dinner and lunch were very long (about 2 hrs waiting time for the main course). The lodge’s new owner Annalise from Netherlands was always around and attentive to the guests needs. We stayed at the older cottage and the newer ones at the back entrance on our initial night and our final night in Arusha. Both rooms were very clean, the beds had mosquito nets and the bed linens and towels were also clean.
