Palms on our beach

The Authentic African Experience

The lodge is set on the idyllic, palm fringed and secluded Ushongo beach on the northern coastline of Tanzania near to Pangani. The beach is deserted with no other lodges or hotels close by, giving the guests the feeling of isolation, peace and exclusivity. Guests can walk for miles each way from the lodge along the deserted beach passing only the occasional friendly local fisherman.

The lodge itself is deliberately low key and relaxed, yet offering the best levels of service and cuisine. Our staff are all employed from the local villages and take great pride in their jobs.

There are many activities to occupy your time if that is what you like, including excellent snorkelling, SCUBA diving, cultural tours and softer activities such as kayaking and surf skiing. We can even arrange a day trip to the nearby Saadani National Park.
