“Terrible Experience”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

Bridge Camp was recommended by a friend - unfortunately the experience was horrific. Service was something we have never experienced before.,the worst we have encountered anywhere. The owner was incredibly rude. There was NO water in the camp. We would NOT recommend this camp to anybody.

Room Tip: Try and find another Lodge in the surrouding area if at all possible.

Reviewed 10 June 2011

We stayed here twice: once on the way up to Tanzania, and then again on the way back. On stay one we arrived about 10pm, which was the time they turned out the electricity. Because of said time, our group of 8 opted for 2 chalets rather than camping. They were nice enough, and equipped with clean sheets and mosquito nets, but turning the electricity off so soon was problematic.

On our second stay, we arrived about 5pm and camped and had a much nicer experience (and were able to get everything done before lights out). My only complaint this time around was that the drinks were so expensive, probably 2 or 3 times the price of what they'd be down the road at the shop.

Overall though, if you are driving through the area and need a place to stay, this is definitely a good option to consider.
