Fodor's Review

Situated plumb in the middle of the park, beside a natural flowing spring, this lodge enjoys spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Pink guest cottages line narrow paved walkways, and although trees and shrubs give you some privacy, they also take away your view. The food, cooked with homegrown herbs and vegetables, is excellent, particularly the homemade pasta. Because the lodge is near the Enkongo Narok Swamp, there's always plenty of game around. Take a game drive, go

walking with a Masai guide, enjoy a bush breakfast, and always remember to keep your doors and windows closed to keep out marauding vervet monkeys, which look cute but can make off with your belongings. The rooms are small, and fairly basic, with an en-suite bathroom. What the lodge lacks in luxury is more than made up by the friendly and helpful staff.
