The location is not good for a 2 days stay as it is located 1 hour from the park gate.
Rooms are basic and not very clean.
Food is not good, personnel is nice but with no experience. The manager is not interested on clients but only on getting money.
I had transfer and accommodation organized by a travel agency in Arusha for the entire tour (15 days), we only had problems with them: they forgot our transfer from the air strip giving excused of car problems.
But the most important review is about game drive organized by the lodge manager, very expensive, old cars not good for a game drive and with no competence - the same person serving drinks for dinner, is the guide on game drive. I have had a very bad experience with them, I was really scared when we had a group of elephants (especially with a female nursing a little one) in front and around us, and they wanted to go ahead instead of going back. I didn't feel safe at all! We finally got out and the elephants went away, but it was a very bad situation I had never had the days before with the other guide.
