We went back to Ol Mesera after a lengthy absence and wondered what took us so long! It is such a relaxing place, with the options of just sitting looking at the birds, going for a long walk in the bush, relaxing with a good book - whatever. Barbara is a wonderful host, she really takes care of you. We were delighted with the fresh produce of the new veg garden, and the great meals prepared Lukas. It's very handy for trips to Lake Manyara national park and for venturing into Mto wa Mbu. We will go back soon for sure.
