The staff is the best experience of this Lodge very friendly. The place is not being maintained half build things lying around everywhere. We stayed for 3 days and on the first day the cold drinks ran out. There were no cold drinks either everything was hot. You only have power from 6-10pm. Nothing to do the lodge is in very poor state. Food was ok and staff very friendly. Misleading advertising as luxurious lodge. It is on the bottom scale of basic. Over priced and no value for money. Arranged a safari to ruaha the guide was again good but the car very bad and again way over priced for the quality
The Mabata Makali lodge is located 1-2 km outside of the Ruaha national park in the middle of nature. However, you must drive about 30 km till the gate. Due to the vicinity of the national park, you can sometimes see animals on your way to/from the gate already. We saw a giraffe, impala, baboons and a 2m cobra. Pos: The food was very good. The lodges are large with comfortable beds and nice bathroom. The staff was incredible. They were very friendly and helpful. For example, we asked for laundry service and they told us that they would do it for free. Neg: Wi-Fi is only available in the main building and was not very reliable.
This place is far and away better than it appears here. Its My Second Time Visiting Mabata and i enjoyed excellent food and very pleasant and helpful customer service. This place is sorrounded by Nature which makes it immensely beautiful!The room was clean, cool & comfortable,they also got the tents so you can choose. I also loved the security guards,their were super Helpful and made us feel so much safe in the nights and day time! I will surely revisit again and again! Incredibly impressed and highly recommend.
Its my second stay at Mabata Makali and the place never disappoints!! The staff got me feeling at home even though i was away from home. The Maasai guards, made my few night in tents relaxing. The bonfire! Walk safari, swimming pool, the trip to Ruaha national park, not forgetting the amazing BBQ party set at ILUSI RIVER SAND!! Omg that was the most precious set ever!! And yes! The food is wow!!
