The lodge is very nice and spacious with a bar and large outdoor deck with a pool and amazing views of the lake. The buffet dinner and breakfast was very good with plenty of options. The tents...

OMG!!! This place is absolutely 100% fantastic. We stayed here 2 nights on our Safari to the Serengeti. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The best part is the bungalows with the porch that over looks the lake so you get the most beautiful sunset and sunrise pictures ever. The dinning area which is set outside overlooking the lake...

The staff were all so friendly and welcoming! The service is professional and it didn't feel like camping! The room was clean and facilities clean. Electricity and wifi was good. THE VIEW!! At dinner, the moon rise was spectacular over Lake Burunge! Sunset was worth my 6am dash down to set up my camera. Food was a good variety and...

Highly recommendable for one night. Having dinner and breakfast open air with this view was a wonderful experience. Ther buffet offers something for every taste. Our older Bungalow was simple but comfortable enough for our needs.

Beautiful view, the staff is helpful, kind and welcoming. The food is good. Love the sound of hyenas wandering around the tents at night (for real). Nice swimming pool to relax after a long safari day.

The name is a little misnomer, as the rooms are not really in tents. T There is a central lobby, bar and restaurant structure with a large viewing deck ans a swimming pool on one side. We were welcomed with a cool glass of juice and a cool wet facecloth to get rid of the dust from our day in...

My husband and I stayed at this camp for one night (26th September) as part of a safari programme. We had never done luxury camping before, but we expected it to be something like glamping. Well we're pleasantly surprised. It was 5 star service in a tent. The staff greeted us with drinks, carried our bags, escorted us to our...
