          Beautiful views of this beautiful country. Wonderful hospitality, nicely appointed rooms, good food, wifi, local tribesmen and women dancing and singing, someone even got up to fetch me another bottle of wine at 2 am. What more can you ask for?

          It's about 3 1/2 hours. We had a driver so I can't give you a cost. Volcanoes safaris might be able to help with transport.

          I read your review which was helpful. W are planning a 3 day trip following the Serengeti in August, can you recommend the best way to make arrangements as there does not appear to be a website devoted to the Lodge but rather numerous Tour operators. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, David Montreal, Canada
