We stayed here as part of our 3-day safari and I thought we were going to be in a tent with a cot. I was pleasantly surprised to arrive at Pembeni to find an incredibly beautiful and luxurious place. The main dining area overlooks a valley, the "rooms" are comfortable with a private bathroom, shower and deck and the food is amazing. The manager, Winnie, is a pleasure and very caring and helpful. The staff we met were friendly and attentive. I high recommend this peaceful and beautiful place.

We spent one night at Pembeni, and we loved it. The staff were super friendly and the food was amazing. The rooms are great, I still remember being amazed at the views from my bed. The lodge is located next to the Ngorongoro forest and so one can really enjoy the sights and sounds. I highly recommend Pembeni to anyone traveling through Karatu one their way to both Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

Wonderful place to rest in best conditions for a Safari, tents are well spaced each other, very nice beds with a view to the beautiful Pembeni valley. The food is quite good with a large choice of plates every day.

We stayed here after five days in the hot Serengeti. It was lovely. The tents are simple but very comfy and with great views on the green highlands. I loved the food from the restaurant including a full breakfast. In the morning we had a nice walk through the forest to a small river with a local guide. We found many footsteps of elephants so we could have encountered with the big giants. Our kids loved the place as well as they had a big space for running around and playing in the grass. Winnie, the manager, took care of all of us well by even bringing some water or bananas without asking. I would recommend this place for sure.
