Fodor's Review

Traditional Africa meets contemporary classic in the stylish interiors of this exquisite lodge set in established gardens amid coffee plantations only 4 km (2½ mi) from the Ngorongoro Crater. Cottages are furnished in a clean, uncluttered style that employs African motifs, prints, and artifacts complemented by the creams, browns, and whites of the soft furnishings, the wooden furniture, and terra-cotta tiled floors. Beautiful en-suite tiled bathrooms continue the theme

of space and light, as do the public areas where you can dine in style at a massive long wooden table with your fellow guests, or have a romantic candlelit dinner à deux in the garden or on your private veranda. Food is homegrown and tastily prepared, and there's a list of good South African wines. The lodge can arrange your daily activities; neither is included in the quoted price. The lodge has many repeat guests and the guestbook echoes the word Paradise written over and over again.
