“I simply had an amazing trip, brilliant loaction, sensational accomodation, awesome staff all came together to give me a once in a lifetime trip. To awaken under the mountains of Kilimanjaro, have fantastic game drives, and then relax with the team back at the lodge, great food, roaring fire and and nothing was too much trouble. I would suggest everyone and anyone go along for a week.” – Lee B

“If you want to see elephant this is the national park to go. We stayed at this camp and it is beautiful however it is outside the park which approximately 3 to 5 to the main gate of the park. The morning view is awesome with Kilimanjaro if you are lucky as we are. Clear blue sky with the clear mountain view in the morning is just so beautiful.” – charlenescuba
