"The eco lodge was really nice. The staff were friendly and really put in the effort to make sure we had a good stay. This included a really nice honeymoon meal outside by the fire pit. The accomodation was really comfortable, and we had amazing views out over the Serengeti. At night, the staff had to escort us back to our rooms with weapons in case of animals - we had hyenas under our hut at one point...! The lodge also organised a walking safari (a really good trip!) and an open sided vehicle trip. This ended with tea and coffee by the Grumeti River watching the wildlife. This was incredibly memorable - the best cup of coffee ever!"
