My husband and I opted in for a 4 days safari with our Kili Outfitter, Climb Kili, and a night stay at this beautiful hotel was a part of the package. We absolutely LOVED this hotel. Everything about it was perfect. The rooms, views, grounds, food, staff... It was all PERFECT! After dinner we ordered some drinks and they brought...

The hotel beautifully decorated and has a wonderful pool area and bar. The staff are extremely attentive and the views from the hotel over the national park are stunning. I stayed here for one night before moving onto other areas of the Northern Circuit - and my one nights stay was peaceful and relaxing. The one downside to the hotel...

Beautiful view. The landscape was so refreshing compared to what we have experienced on our safari trip. This is not where we were supposed to stay as agreed to in our itinerary, but it did the job. Food was tolerable, but not something I would be looking forward to. Wine was not what was ordered and was undrinkable. Extremely noisy...

A very nice hotel with pool and bar to relax at after a day in the jeep. Good rooms with magnificent view. The baboons was nice to see even of they had the capability to go into rooms. Good dinner and breakfast.

Driving up to the hotel it felt like we were on top of a mountain in a scary movie, the fog was so thick that we could barely see in front of the vehicle. But once the fog lifted it was an incredible view that it was hiding. The view alone is breathe taking. The hotel has nice grounds, the...

The hotel was very good in all aspects. I do not know if we were in such a good mood because of the safari, but I cannot remember anything to complain about. I recommend this hotel for everyone who are planning a safari in Tanzania.

This hotel has lovely views, and it was cute having the baboons running about the grounds. The pool area was lovely, though the pool itself was a little dirty - full of small flowers and dead insects. The rooms were very nice, and the mosquito net arrangement was beautiful. The staff were very friendly, though despite the fact that there...

Unlike many other high-end safari lodges, this group of hotels (including the Seronera Lodge) has racist policies that made our stay there very uncomfortable. We are a white American family and we ended up with an empty extra room bc our kids wanted to stay altogether in their own room. The extra room was non-refundable so we offered it our...

“All the rooms are on paths but the cabins are set in such a way that no one has a direct view of your spot. You feel private and protected for guests walking through to there place. Delightful experience. If your hot water is not working when you check in to your room make a call to have service come out and turn on the boiler. A hot shower is always important to me.”
