Really - our jaws dropped when we entered our chalet.
They are 100% luxurious. We stayed at more modest properties on our former safari, and Mbalageti Safari Camp was a whole different level.
Every detail of the property and the chalet's is incredible.
Beautiful beds, furniture and the best bathrooms in the Serengeti with galvanized tubs, big open shower, soaps and candles, a bidet - the works.
No detail was forgotten in the construction or in the management of this property.
Let me start by saying that this is great place indeed.
The rooms are very nice and half tented (at least, our room was), which gives you the feeling of really being out in the bush at night.
Decoration in the room is very tastefully done and the bathroom is just perfect.
The rooms are well spread out around the ground, so you need to do a bit of walking when you want to go to the common buildings.
At night, the Maasai warriors make sure that you come back safely to your room.
Food is very good here. At first I was a bit suspicious with the buffet type dinner, but it is actually very nice and they do make something freshly for you each evening.
This was also one of the places where there was a bit of variety in food. Not just the basic westerns stuff, but a bit more adventurous with dishes from more places around the globe.
The people in this place are very friendly and helpful indeed.
The view from the bar, restaurant and swimming pool is spectacular. Certainly one of the better views we had this trip.
The chorus of insects and birds you can hear during the night - and the warthogs, of course! - is enchanting.
We did see Bush Baby outside our room, as well as antelope, water buck, warthogs, gazelles, topi, snakes, bats and scores of unidentifiable birds (we're not bird people).
But for our liking, it is a bit too much on the luxury side. We prefer a bit more basic, but if you like the more luxurious places, this is the place to be.
