SWAHILI COAST HOTELS
We suggest the following places to stay should you want to visit the Tanzanian Coast.
Saadani Safari Lodge; an award winning eco-chic property where enthusiasm for nature is infectious, is located right on the beach and near the Wami River. Saadani National Park is the closest park to Dar es Salaam and the only National Park in Tanzania that combines bush and beach all in one! The lodge gets rave reviews from its guests.
Peponi; Peponi Beach Resort is a family run and family friendly affair situated right on the beach with a pool and campground as well. The seafood is luscious and the simple bandas are all en-suite and have mosquito nets.
Mkoma Bay Lodge; This is a luxury tented lodge set right on the Indian Ocean. For families or groups there is a larger Swahili Style house overlooking Mkoma Bay. The beautiful unspoiled beach makes Mkoma Bay a romantic spot for weddings or honeymoons. Activities include relaxing overlooking the bay, swimming in the pool or walking along the beach. Just off the mainland there is spectacular snorkeling and diving off the reefs of Maziwe Island. Mkoma Bay has its own boat for cruises up the Pangani River looking for birds or the illusive crocodile! Explore old Pangani on a walking tour arranged with local guides.
Travellers Lodge; Travellers Lodge is situated in the gentle curve of a long, white beach. Step into the inviting Indian Ocean, or laze on the beach and enjoy the timeless view of the enchanting Dhows and historical buildings from German colonial times. There are both beach and garden cottages and air conditioning is available.
