Absolutely some of the best days in our lives! Wonderful staff, great game drives with the best of guides. A lot of good food. The best of lullabies? Of course the Indian ocean! Great bandas and the best of service. Love this place! We will be back!

We spent five nights in the bush rover (the tent with a view). The staff were excellent and the food at all three camp sites was great. The only downside (if you can call it that) was we had heavy rain when camping in Ngorongoro and there wasn't a contingency plan. Maybe having an awning to sit under for meals...

An outstanding location and an excellent combination of safari, swimming in the ocean, food and service. And it was such a quiet place. We had the whole park and the whole beach almost for ourselves. If you want a real safari, where you look at animals and trees rather than at other cars, this is the place to go.

A fantastic place I would recommend to anyone. Me and my girlfriend spent 2 days at this lovely lodge in August 2015. It is in a beautiful location that really must be seen to be believed. Our banda was traditional african style and was very comfortable. The staff were fantastic and catered to our every need. In particular I must...

After a bumpy drive during which we saw lots of animals including elephants, we arrived in Paradise! The tents are not really tents but beautiful, secluded beach side cottages where every detail has been thought through. The patios overlook the most beautiful beach where you occasionally see another human being, but rarely. You can enjoy the views and the peacefulness...

In a whole week we never had to lock our doors! The staff were friendly, trustworthy and went out of their way to make our trip extraordinary. The food was out of this world - far too much but hey, we were on holiday! The word 'tent' isn't entirely accurate! They are permanent structures with a turn down service, ensuite...

We have just returned from a two week trip to Tanzania, one week of which was in Tent with a View. We had already been to the Serengeti in the north so the second week was more about relaxing and seeing a different part of Tanzania. After a long quite uncomfortable journey from Dar Salaam we arrived to find this...

Just returned from this wonderful safari where we enjoyed outstanding hospitality and very personal game drives. Our guide had very impressive knowledge and the location of the lodge right beside the beautiful Indian Ocean proved very popular with our children too. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff which extended to driving our delayed baggage down from Dar...

The deserted sandy beach is perfect for beachcombing, and the clear sea is safe for swimming.There are just 11 beachfront tented rooms (or "bandas") including 3 family suites with en suite bathrooms and solar powered hot water and electric lighting.
