Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

This was an amazing place to stay. Rich and Tansy were extremely welcoming as were all the staff. The accommodation was sublime. Extremely comfortable with wonderful views over the Serengeti. We were able to drink the water and we were given refillable water bottles to use and to keep. The food was delicious and plentiful but never too much and served on a balcony overlooking the Serengeti. The early morning game drives were exciting and the picnic breakfasts and lunches were delicious and it was wonderful sitting amongst the trees watching the elephants wonder by. The migration was far beyond what we imagined. The number of wildebeest was unbelievable. We were waved off on every Game Drive and welcomed back with cool wet flannels. A truly memorable Lodge which we were sad to leave.
