The tented lodge is perched on the Mwamveni hill and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Serengeti plains and the Mbalageti River.
Accessible from the Mwanza-Musoma highway through the Ndabaka gate (1.5hrs) or from Naabi gate from the Arusha side (3 hrs); the drive to the lodge is a unique wilderness experience.
Mbalageti is the word from old Maasai language which means wildebeest - but the word is no longer in use; today Mbalageti refers to the 'seasonal river'.
There are three types of accommodation at Mbalageti. The luxury suites are in perfect harmony through design and comfort with two en suite bedrooms, a lounge veranda and superb views over the plains of the Serengeti.
The luxurious safari-style tented chalets have large, beautifuly furnished bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and with spectacular view. The private veranda with its cooling thatched roof is a tranquil oasis and works as an extension of your bedroom in the wild.
The Lodge Rooms are an option for the budget traveller and are smaller than the tented chalets and decorated in a modern design for a feeling of comfort. Featuring big comfortable beds, en suite bathrooms and a small veranda - the Lodge Rooms are perfectly adequate for those more interested in wildlife than luxurious accommodation.
Mbalageti's swimming pool is made out of local rocks and is sits on the edge of the hill. With a breathtaking view of the Serengeti, the pool offers the ideal opportunity to cool off after a hot and dusty game drive.
There is a small spa at the lodge offering massages, facial treatments, manicure & pedicure and a plunge pool. The treatments are available in a private and tranquil setting.
The welcome area is beautifully furnished with comfortable sofas and african artifacts and the lounges and bar areas are extensive - again with African wood carvings and wall coverings.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant. Enjoy dining with the Serengeti as a vista. The chef and his team will serve you a meals with a fusion of local influences and Continental cuisine.
