Accommodation

 
Fumba Beach Lodge
Robinson Crusoe atmosphere at the beach. Dinner on a little terrace possible: you sit right under the Southern Cross. Friendly staff, good service. Great meal.
 
Swala Camp
Really extraordinary! Amazing site with elephants in front of you in the morning and in the evening, even near the tent. Very luxury tents. Very friendly staff. More distance to other guests. Wonderful food. Only problem are tsetse-flies on the way to the camp.
 
Onsea House
Nice property to stay at, breeze of European atmosphere, stylish great dinner, unimaginably rich breakfast. Very friendly staff. Kind hosts having time for a chat.
 
Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
Fantastic view on the crater rim esp. for sunset. Appealing building with huge entrance hall. Rooms comfortable, rather hotel-like. Very friendly staff and excellent food.
 
Ndarakwai Lodge
Interesting site in the hilly country between Mt.Kilimanjaro and Mt.Meru, very friendly staff, also the manager couple, very personal to us. We felt secure, even on our first walking safari. Leopards, hyena, giraffe, zebra, eland... around. Good food. Close contact to Maasai village! Impressive!
 
Manyara Ranch
Very close to wildlife, especially lions. We soon got part of the 'plot' because the enthusiastic manager couple took us everywhere on foot, by jeep day and night. Personal atmosphere, very sympathetic staff. Fantastic food.
 
Kirurumu Manyara Lodge
Stunning view from the bungalow and the restaurant. The 'most African' accomodation we stayed at, probably because of many Maasai staff and local people with their houses around, good mood and atmosphere. Wonderful food.
 
Gibbs Farm
Extraordinary place because of coffee plantation and large vegetable garden, very nice accomodation. Very friendly staff, good service.
 
Dunia Camp
Great place! Watch the rising sun with a cup of tea at 7 a.m., some zebras at a distance! All kind of animals around. Breathtaking peaceful landscape. Wonderful service, great staff and food, nearly familiar atmosphere.
 
Emerson Spice
We immediatly felt at home on the roof top terrace and in our marvellous room. Fantastic building. Kind people around, very good service. Excellent food.
