"I have to say we could find little to like about this place. Perhaps the only good things about the camp were the gas heaters in the tents which were light in the evening and again when the morning tea was served, and the location close to the quiet entry/exit road to the crater. However location was against it when it came to move on to the Serengeti as we had to drive three-quarters of the way round the crater rim to reach the Serengeti road."
