        Situated in the hills around Ngorongoro, this nice lodge allows a full immersion in the nature. We loved our tent, the kindness of the staff, the good cuisine, the fireplace, the voices of hienas during the nights. Cold temperatures in the night, warm clothes suggested....More

        Friendly staff, Facilities high standard. Good honest food, well presented, tasty. Tents comfortable. But the road! I do not think the camp can do anything about it. If road better it would rate very high.
