We stayed in the Impala hotel for two nights before and after our safari to the game parks. Whilst the hotel itself is perfectly serviceable, my review focuses entirely on the food in the Indian restaurant, which we thought was outstanding in quality. The dishes...More

The best palak paneer I have ever had! Service can be slow but its worth the wait. It can be cold if you eat in, so bring a jumper.

We stayed here one night when we left our other hotel in the middle of the night because of wedding and birthday celebrations right outside our room. Luckily, the Impala had space. Unlike most places in TZ, the Impala does not offer resident discounts. The...More
