Overdue post from March 2016. Stayed here one night as we transferred from Ngorognoro on to the Serengeti. Booked through safari infinity as we were looking for one luxurious night. Top notch service and food. On arrival we had champagne and a fruit basket in our room (we were on our honeymoon). Beautiful infinity pool. The spa was nice but...

We chose to spend a whole day (two nights) just relaxing beside the pool which was fantastic after a full on safari. Our suite was beautiful with a double sided fire place which would be a blaze when you got back from dinner if you requested it. Lovely big terrace with gorgeous view.

This lodge is beautifully hidden in the jungle in very close proximity to Ngorongoro crater. Peaceful, serene atmosphere allows you to completely immerse yourself in the stunning nature and reflect on your safari experience. Rooms are very spacious and staff is lovely.
