Fodor's Review

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. However, it's cheap and cheerful, with small, rather drab en-suite rooms with king-size beds and big windows, and a cafeteria-style restaurant

and bars that come 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.) The food is hearty and wholesome with a tasty evening buffet, often accompanied by the snorts and harrumphing of the nearby hippos. You'll certainly see lots of game at close quarters, but lots of other visitors and vehicles, too.
