Although this big popular lodge is attractively located around huge rocks and boulders that are next to a number of water holes, it's also plumb in the middle of Serengeti—an ideal place for superb wildlife-viewing. But don't expect the levels of service and luxury you would get from some of the smaller, more exclusive camps. Bedrooms are in serious need of updating (small, rather drab en-suite rooms)and the lodge in general could do with a facelift however, it's cheaper than most accomodation in the park. A large cafeteria-style restaurant and bar comes alive in the evenings when the day's game-viewing or ballooning experiences are shared. (You're only five minutes from balloon lift-off here.) You'll certainly see lots of game at close quarters, but lots of other visitors and vehicles, too.
