Spent one night in between Tarangire and Lake Manyara. The owner greeted us and was very friendly and helpful. We were the only two guests that night. The bungalows were nicely and individually decorated and have animal names. The garden is beautiful, lush and green! After camping it felt like a treat having a private bathroom, a hot shower and...

Stayed here for a night on a safari which took us through Kenya and Tanzania. John (manager) and his staff were the most welcoming and accommodating people we stayed with on our travels. The food was excellent and the room we stayed in (Chui) had a nice traditional feel and a good hot shower! The only thing the room could...

On Sept. 23/2016 a group of 5 Canadians from Canada were invited to dine at Nsya Lodge by the proprietor Rishma and her husband Monty. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the staff who served a chilled fruit/tea beverage. The meal was served on the lovely veranda by a very professional staff. The Chicken Marsala was tender, and...

Lodge is well situated for Lake Manyara NP (which was the hidden gem of our 10 day safari across Kenya and Tanzania). The accommodation is rustic (think rural cottages and a few cobwebs) but well appointed. John the manager is beyond helpful (what a man!) and the food was delicious.. some of the best we've had in Africa. Great stay...

The lodge is just steps away from the town and is a perfect little getaway, for a very reasonable price. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean. The showers were hot, and the food was well-prepared. Good wifi in the restaurant and bar area.

We thought we were getting a nice romantic getaway for a great price, but we definitely got what we paid for...the price was definitely too good to be true! The food was the worse part. They actually cut the bread rolls in half and meals were mostly cheap starches with very small portions of protein. The owners sat on the...

No drinking water on the premises set the tone for the planned stay. Pool with something resembling water from another era and barely warm water in the shower - the stay was very different to what was expected from the website and previous recommendations from this site.
