The Tides Lodge is situated near Pangani, north of Dar es Salaam on the mainland Tanzania coast. It is close to Saadani National Park and has good air links to Zanzibar and the many parks of Tanzania.

This area of the coast is unspoiled and still untouched by mainstream tourism. There are just seven cottages plus a honeymoon suite and two family houses a little further along the beach. All rooms have large bathrooms, dressing areas and porches with chairs. Each one has its own area of beach with 2 sun loungers and a parasol. Beach towels are provided. There is a large, lockable wooden box in each room, for storing valuables.

The main building is light and airy, built of wood and thatch. Here you'll find the bar, lounge and dining area. There is a swimming pool set back from the sea, bordered by coconut palms. There are sunbeds and sunshades where you can while away lazy hours.

Canoes are available free of charge. Other activities are payable locally and include cycling, snorkelling, diving, a guided walking historical tour of Pangani, a fishing village visit and a sunset dhow cruise. There is also a laser dinghy for guest use.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

A really fun place, very friendly and helpful staff and guides and gorgeous accommodation on the beach. We had brilliant snorkelling trips, an interesting town tour, and a sail in a Ngarrawa, a native dugout sailing boat used for fishing and raced by the locals for fun. A highlight for my boataholic husband.
