    Masai Culture

    Excellent experience of the Masai culture. The rooms are very unique and cleverly crafted.

    Pros: The inclusion of Masai activities, such as spear throwing, dance, nature walk, masai food, etc. The staff is well trained with great customer service

    Cons: The menu for dinner and lunch could be improved, as we found the food very bland and mediocre.

    Location: It is 2.5hrs away from Arusha and 1.5hrs away from Kilimanjaro. So, plan accordingly. You will be relying on the hotel for all activities.

    "An incredible lifetime experience"

    My husband organized a 4 nights dream trip thru Hotel.com to celebrate my birthday. We had a full board meals and daily activities. "Maasai Lodge" is a traditional lodge set amidst the wild nature of the Maasai, beautifully decorated with handcrafted furniture with wonderful views on Mount Kilimanjaro. A special place for couples and family to rest, to experience their festivals and dances, where you will truly immerse in their culture. We were treated like their friends and family. The bungalow we had was quiet and the view was amazing !!! All the equipment in the room reaches the level of international comfort. (Do not forget to arrange an early coffee in your room so you can enjoy the sunrise over the Kilimanjaro from your bed). The food was delicious and carefully prepared by the young Chef, Elias. He is very creative and has made the fusion between international and traditional local cuisines. Its BEST vegetables filled with many local flavors (even if the meat portion is tiny ...). Overall, throughout our experience, we find the staff are very friendly, helpful and professional like Unambwe, Elia, Chef Elias, Ellegear, Vicktoria, Irene, Samuel, Emmanuel and other we do not remember their name? And of course Naki who help us thru succesfully our reservation from the begining... We would like to thank everyone for making our stay so enjoyable. We will not forget this "incredible lifetime experience". We definately will return someday!!!

    Wonderful stay at the Lodge

    Staying at the lodge was such a peaceful yet spectacular experience. It was so beautiful all around us, full of clean air, interesting geography, and lots of interesting landscape to hike around and explore. The food was first class and delicious. Our hosts made us very comfortable and always were willing to help if we needed anything.

    Pros: The food, the hosts, the geography, and hiking.

    Cons: The road in could stand some improvement.

    Location: So many things to do that the list is endless.

    5/5 Excellent
