When we first arrived, I will admit that it was a bit of an adjustment as we were used to lodges and we're not really outdoorsy people (I know, then what the hell were we doing in the Serengeti?) BUT the tents were really nice, very clean, and the bed was HUGE and so comfortable. Also, they have hot water at all times so you can shower whenever - apparently, you have to call staff for hot water everywhere else in the Serengeti.
The best part about the Sound of Silence is the staff - they are so friendly and hilarious. Florah was our girl - she was so funny and great company. Gift was another gem because he brought us a fan immediately after we recommended they have them in the rooms. We were in SHOCK that he brought us a fan and forever grateful. Oh, also - the food is DIVINE here. BEST food that we had our entire trip. A good variety and had lots of flavor.
WiFi was a little janky but it also forces you to be social with everyone and enjoy people's company vs be invested in your phone. Loved loved loved our experience at the Sound of Silence.More
