Fantastic spot with warm loving staff! They have the best, well organized tours.... and if you are looking to mingle with our tourist then this is the spot for you. We came in as guests but we left feeling as part of a family.

This was one of my favorite places during my month in Tanzania. It is simple and rustic, but has a great relaxing feel to it. The staff is great and the guides are very professional and knowledgable. We had amazing encounters with the Whale sharks!
