This was a really lovely and unexpected treat. I could have spent more time here for sure, but it was only one night. Just a beautiful, romantic, exotic place with beautiful rooms. An excellent place to stay. The pool looked very enticing but I didn't stay long enough to enjoy it. This is a very comfortable, quaint place with excellent...

Having complained about the state of the first hotel we were given we were moved to the Country Lodge. To say it was superb is probably an understatement, it was brilliant. Having arrived in the late afternoon after a long day on Safari we were met with a cool drink and a wonderful smile. We were shown to our cottage...

Stayed here two times during a seven day safari February 2017. When you arrive to this tropical oasis, you're welcomed with a glass of juice and a fresh cold towel and a warm smiling from the staff. The service is very good, very nice welcoming and we got very good information from the reception when we arrived. The room buildings...

We stayed in Karatu Country Lodge for three nights at the end of Feb. 2017. We were 4 adults and 3 kids (9,8,5). The hotel has an excellent position (15 minutes drive) to Ngorongoro Game Reserve and it is located in reasonable distance from NP Manyara (60 minutes) and Tarangire (90 minutes). We visited all three parks. The service, stuff...

My husband and I stayed with our two boys (aged 7 and 9), and my father, while we were on safari in December 2016 (3 nights). The rooms were beautiful, clean and spacious. Staff were exceptional, great service, always smiling and willing to accommodate our requests. They were really great with our kids. The grounds were spectacular! Beautiful, lush and...

A lovely lodge in Northern Tansania before entering Serengeti and Ngorogoro. The rooms are spacious, rustic, clean - I especially liked the bathroom tiled with natral glimmering stones. The rooms are around a parklike green area with a swimming pool that offers a refreshing dip after a hot day. And the food - incredible quality. We are vegans and the...

After a week in the wilderness, checking into this hotel was a welcome sight! The rooms were housed in a mini bungalow, kind of like what we normally see in Hollywood movies about Africa in the 70s. The hotel has a pool and wifi and has a 70-80s feel in terms of the deco. Food as usual was good as...

This is a beautifully kept, central lodge from which one could visit many of the attractions around northern Tanzania. The grounds were absolutely lovely with many interesting plant species, and they grow most of their own produce!! Due to this, and what I presume is excellent kitchen staff, the food was the best we had while on safari. I would...

This is a lovely lodge with small cottages around a swimming pool. The grounds were lush and green and filled with flowers. There is wifi only in the main lodge area. The cottages are large with huge bathrooms. There are plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the sun or some shade. The food was exceptional- chef prepared and...
