I am 16 and came here with my family (there are 6 of us). It was beautiful. It was our start of our holiday. we stayed for 4 nights. We were in the private house and it was the coolest place. i loved it. youd fall to sleep listening to night sounds and wake up with a hot chocolate watching the red sun come up with Mount Kilimanjaro in front of you. Mount Kilimanjaro is mesmerising. i couldnt keep my eyes off it. Juma was our safari guide- Loved him. he was great adn managed to show us a cheetah run, lion kill, and got the best shot of our trip of us with elephants under the mountain! :) the staff are so so friendly - i got to know them all and are all so nice. we had bush breakfast under the mountain, and went to the maasai village which was an unforgettable experience. ive vowed that i will come back. LOVED IT.
PS. food was great :)
