I spent 4 nights here, specially for birding the Miombo Woodlands around the Lodge. I had a lovely time, this is surely the best spot for exploring this beautiful habitat. My one regret is that I wasted time and money on an game drive to Mikumi National Park - it is a very nice park with lots of animals, but sittinfg in a car was much less fun than walking in tje hills around the lodge with the Massaai watchman from the lodge and discovering birds and animals for myself. The lodge itself was great: lovely room, hot shower and excellent food all for a bargain price. Highly reccommended
The lodge is ca 7kms from the main road, depending how the rain destroys existing roads and new ones are made. It took as ca 30 minutes in our first attempt but later managed to get there in 20 already. The lodge itself is amazing - self-sustainable, very comfortable, very friendly staff and delicious dinners. You will probably see impalas, warthogs and baboons while driving there. The forest is full of sounds especially during the evening. The huts are huge, hot showers are possible, charging possibilities in the huts.
Visited the Mikumi safari Lodge when we visited the Mikumi Park in July 2019. It's a totally isolated place. Can be reached after a 10minutes drive through a jungle road. Need a four wheel drive vehicle. It's calm and quiet and it's the best place for a person who need a complete escape from all the busy schedules. First thing you notice is the very friendly staff. And there's a messei as well. The food is just great. It's tailor ade to the guests needs. Seperate cottages provide full privacy.Great place to enjoy nature in the purest way.. Recommended.
We have just been one night in this hotel but it was enough to notice how peaceful and quiet the place is. The staff is lovely and a provided us a high quality service. If you want to feel like home this is the place to be.
The rural style is the best and balcony with swing chairs are so nice and peaceful. The food is great. I booked 10 days safari and this is the first hotel and impressive in whole journey. It is near to Mikumi national park, so don't be hesitate and book it now to get the best room to hear the bird sing.
