As part of our OAT safari we stayed here one night on our way to the Serengetti. This lodge boasts its own huge organic garden and coffee plantation. There is a pool, internet, bar and very good restaurant. A word of advice, if you want to take pictures in the coffee plantation of the workers be prepared to tip them a dollar. The rooms are in Swahili and mine was "Maasai" easy enough. This was a beautiful room with a huge bed and fireplace. Be prepared at night to hear the small animals run across the roof. You can also hear people speaking next door. The food was nicely prepared and the staff was very helpful.
