Review of Kitela Lodge
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.
wish we had stayed here longer. great accommodations, service and food. a little far from game viewing in crater and serengetti
