Only fifty minutes away from Ngorongoro Crater, this top-notch hotel is probably one of the best in the world. In the midst of a coffee plantation, everything seems to flow magically, absent of extravagances or useless display but with the precision and discretion of real luxury. A flawless experience. Special thanks to Roddy and Peter, who made our stay perfect....

The food, staff, lodging and services are outstanding. The grounds are beautiful and annexed to a coffee plantation so the view is magnificent. The grounds are secured with electric wiring (to protect the 800+ hectares of coffee plants from being trampled by the animals) so you can enjoy the grounds day or night. A real treat!! Lots of places to...

This was part of the Sky Safari package offered by Elewana. (see other relevant reviews). No doubt this is a fantastic hotel with superb facilities that are at odds with the surrounding poverty. It is in an old coffee plantation which is surrounded by an electric fence to keep the animals out. I mention this because to me, this epitomises...

We travelled in Dec. 2014. This place a paradise on earth and the only negative thing is that we stayed for only 1 night. Rooms, lodge`s set up, restaurants, food and service are just perfect and makes you want to stay longer. It`s totally relaxing and to our surprise is also romantic, although we were with our kids so it...
