We stayed one night, and we loved it. Don't get deterred by 1/2 hr drive on horribly bumpy road, it is worth it. The drive among the hills and plantations is scenic, views fantastic and the camp, although rustic, has a special "feel" and lots of character. When we arrived and were shown to our tent, we looked down the valley and saw huge elephant feasting on coffee plants (I don't think the farmer was happy, but elephants don't care about park's border!). Dinner by candlelight was very romantic, and the food was very good. It was cold, and they asked us whether we want a fire in our tent. We said yes and a Maasai brought hot coals when we were already in bed. It was so cozy and comfortable.
We left early in the morbning for the crater (it is closer to the gate than driving from Karatu), but we wish we had more time to visit coffee plantation. Sure we stayed in pricier and more luxurious camps, but this was our favorite.More
