10/10 Exceptional

Es un sitio estupendo y las instalaciones no defraudan. Es un buen sitio para dormir antes o después de visitar el cráter del ngorongoro. Lo mejor, está a 4 km de la carretera principal y el camino es accesible, otros lodges están mucho más aislados y se tardan más de 40 min en llegar por caminos horribles. En general, un sitio perfecto.

Charmante Unterkunft in Waldnähe
Sympathische Lodge oberhalb von Karatu in ruhiger Lage, Ausgangspunkt für Safaris und lokale Wanderungen oder nur zum relaxen. Sehr schöne Konstruktion, alles Naturmaterialien, liebevoll hergerichtet, sauber und gut bewirtschaftet. Freundliche und hilfsbereite Crew, Halunka Matata
