Fodor's Review

Situated beside a natural flowing spring, this lodge enjoys spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Ocre-color guest rooms line paved walkways that weave through landscaped gardens. 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 Maasai 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. There is one suite, which has its own private garden and rooftop balcony, and which has direct views to Mt. Kilimanjaro. What the lodge lacks in luxury is more than made up by the friendly and helpful staff.
