We only had the fortune to stay here one night during our trip to Ngorongoro as it was fully booked and we soon saw why. Tthe journey to the lodge from the main road is dusty and bumpy and if the guide had not known the way, we would never have found it unaided! The lodge is set in lovely grounds with a swimming pool and view across the landscape. The rooms are beautifully furnished with HUGE comfy beds and a luxurious bathroom with all the mod cons you would expect. There is a small balcony outside the door with steps that lead down to the gardens. Dinner was 4 courses and the food was exceptional (the best we had during our whole safari trip). The bar is small and modern but there is a balcony with additional seats and tables outside. The owner came and introduced herself and was happy to chat with the guests. After dinner we met the owner again and chatted over drinks to her and the manager for an hour or so. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and we were very sorry to leave. Breakfast was a small buffet with a choice of eggs from the kitchen. We absolutely adored this lodge and would have happily stayed for longer. We would highly recommend it to everyone.
