Monica Lefkof

Service was excellent. Lodge was nice, looked just like the pictures. Food was a little limited but still good.

Review of Kitela Lodge

Jens von Gierke

Great setting and service. It was a bit misleading, talking about on the crater, looking at the East Wall and a Waterfall. But the rooms were great, service was outstanding.
