I cannot say enough about the managers at Mtentu, Elena and Allan. They were superb – excellent food, comfy clean beds and lots of hot water. Well done to Mtentu staff. A wonderful stay

We finally got to spend a few days at Mtentu last week and WOW, super impressed. We love the rustic chilled vibes, especially after some gruelling hikes that rewarded us with the most incredible views and waterfalls (and a chocolate tequila).
