About this listing

Stay over night in the middle of the African bush and relax on the secluded beach. Wonderful healthy food, a mixture between European and African cuisine, and cool cocktails make your stay perfect.
Price is for bed&breakfast for two people sharing a room with queen-size bed or two single beds; rooms with king-size bed are more expensive. Please let us know in advance if you'd like to order additional lunch/dinner.
We'd also love to take you to explore Saadani National Park with us.

The space

Built eco, run eco and not lacking any of the western comforts you need for a good and relaxing vacation. This means we have no power outages because we run on solar and wind, always hot water, because for each guest unit we have a separate solar water heating system. Great en-suite showers and a big comfortable bed make your stay relaxing.

Guest access

You can explore long white sand beach without anybody around, bar and restaurant of the lodge, a salt lake and a mangrove system can be discovered (with or without your hosts). If you like we can also go with you on safari in Saadani National Park - see lions, hippos, giraffes, elephants and many more.

Interaction with guests

We, my husband, our little daughter and myself, are usually around and seeing to it that you aren't missing anything you need. Any questions you have for your stay - we are here and if you enjoy stories about Africa, we also might join you for dinner.

Other things to note

Since we kept our place very natural with lots of bush, you might see monkeys, squirrels, dik-diks and duikers running around, lots of birds you will hear (although not always see) and during the night you might wake up from the shouting of the bush-babies. This is also why we don't allow pets as they disturb the wildlife on the plot.

We had a very nice time at Tembo Kijana. Sarah and her husband were good hosts making us comfortable and enjoying our stay. Food is simply great outstanding for Tanzanian terms is our experience. Beach is lovely and even lonely (which we liked) in our occasion. We went by car which was tough (3h rough road from Muheza) but doable although we had have to fix our exhaust. Would love to stay again especially for relaxing after doing safari circuit.

Our stay at Ecolodge was really nice! We stayed in a very nice bungalow right out in the bush, it was an amazing feeling. Sarah was very good as a host, and took well care of us! The food was amazing, the best we have had in Tanzania, and we have lived here for 2 months now. Everybody that worked there were very friendly, and made our stay very nice! me and my fiance would really recommend Tembo Kijani ecolodge!
