Accommodation

 
Taybet Zaman
Taybet Zaman was fabulous!
 
The Swahili House
Very interesting and attractive ex-sultan's palace. The amount and steepness of the steps to access the rooms and rooftop restaurant, in particular, is foreboding! The room was equipped with air conditioning but the bed was uncomfortable and broke during the night! We had a good quality evening meal but choices were limited (unable to supply some of the menu) and breakfast was adequate. Great location for exploring Stonetown but expect to get lost many, many times!!
 
Sea Cliff Hotel Dar
A well resourced and comfortable hotel but we found it a bit strange to have a room away from the main complex. Staff were helpful and friendly and some are from the Masaai tribe, which helps to create an authentic experience. We enjoyed using the gym and having entertainment whilst eating in the restaurant.
 
Ras Nungwi
Beautiful location, overlooking the Indian ocean. The complex is attractive and very well cared for by staff from the local community. The rooms are well equipped and service is superb. The size of bed is amazing and a real treat! Staff are friendly and attentive and do everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. A good variety of high quality meals are provided. Regular and varied entertainment whilst eating in the evening and beyond would further enhance this lovely hotel.
 
Mwagusi Safari Camp
A very well organised camp which retains a relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for an amazing safari experience. Service is superb - from the moment you arrive you feel SO well looked after! Staff are very well trained and fully attentive. Staying in the beautiful bandas allows you to be close to nature and fully experience the atmosphere. The food is an excellent mix of local and western dishes. It is so varied and superbly presented - you feel in awe of the chef and small catering team who manage to produce such amazing dishes (many served in magical outdoor locations) when the nearest town is over 3 hours away! Staff tailor the game drive experience to your wishes where possible and we were able to see 22 types of animal on our 5 night stay. Can only give massive praise to Mwagusi, it was a great place to enjoy our 25th wedding anniversary and the staff even made us a cake and cooked us a special meal!
