The SpaceThere are six large tents under thatched “bandas” with verandas leading directly onto the private beach. The tents are situated in such a way to take advantage of the sea breezes during the hot-season, as well as the marvelous sunsets. The proprietors have worked hard to keep the site as simple and undisturbed as possible while still providing all the necessary comforts. Each tent is equipped with a complete bathroom with solar showers. Energy for the tents is provided by solar panels and wind generation allowing the beach camp to supply guests with 24 hour electricity without the need of a generator. The lights and ceiling fans are also energy efficient. All the water from the showers and sinks supports constructed wetlands, providing controlled nutrition to a variety of plants. The toilets are low-flush, reducing water usage with the resulting waste being filtered into composting units, eliminating the need for septic tanks. The stunning feature of the location is nearly 3 km of private beach stretching away in both directions. The sand is white and pure and one can always swim despite tidal changes. Situated on Mafia Island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, the complete isolation from any other tourist facility, or commercial activity of any kind, offers guests solitude, nature and complete relaxation. Features include: * 6 safari-style tents: 2 doubles; 4 twins * Bedding and towels provided * Private bathroom with showers * Solar and wind power * Bar and restaurant * Full board * Swimming pool * Transfers included * Massage treatments * 3km of private beach * Activities available: (URL HIDDEN)Game fishing boat (URL HIDDEN)Dhow boat for excursions (URL HIDDEN)Kayaking (URL HIDDEN)Windsurfing (URL HIDDEN)Snorkelling (URL HIDDEN)Guided excursions

    The SpacePart of the virtually unknown Mafia archipelago that lies south of Zanzibar, Chole is a tiny tropical island located in the largest marine park in East Africa, a few clicks off the Tanzanian coast. Set sail for its mangrove-lined shores, and as the first treehouses hove into view, the last vestiges of the 21st century recede: no roads, no cars, no electricity, no computers, no mobile phones. Just a star-spangled sky, flickering candles, superb food, great company, and the timeless luxuries of space, privacy, and utter peace. Guest AccessWith only seven treehouses, carefully placed and designed, privacy is assured. Open to the elements, with the king-size bed the throne-like centerpiece, each thatched platform is reached via sandy paths that lead through the natural vegetation. All have views of the sea; some are close enough to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the tide trickling back through the mangrove roots. Most treehouses have a second level to accommodate children.

        Selous Kinga Lodge is another wonderful reason to visit the magical southern Tanzania.This Paradise-like retreat is strategically and exclusively positioned on the banks of the awesome Rufiji river with the amazing Selous Game Reserve as the next door neighbours.The safari lodge is an excellent .... All rates are inclusive of all taxes ,bb per room per night for double occupancy. The Selous Game Reserve, covering 50,000 square kilometres, is amongst the largest protected areas in Africa and is relatively undisturbed by human impact. The property harbours one of the most significant concentrations of elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile, amongst many other species. The reserve also has an exceptionally high variety of habitats including Miombo woodlands, open grasslands, riverine forests and swamps, making it a valuable laboratory for on-going ecological and biological processes. The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest remaining wilderness areas in Africa, with relatively undisturbed ecological and biological processes, including a diverse range of wildlife with significant predator/prey relationships. The property contains a great diversity of vegetation types, including rocky acacia-clad hills, gallery and ground water forests, swamps and lowland rain forest. The dominant vegetation of the reserve is deciduous Miombo woodlands and the property constitutes a globally important example of this vegetation type. Because of this fire-climax vegetation, soils are subject to erosion when there are heavy rains. The result is a network of normally dry rivers of sand that become raging torrents during the rains; these sand rivers are one of the most unique features of the Selous landscape. Large parts of the wooded grasslands of the northern Selous are seasonally flooded by the rising water of the Rufiji River, creating a very dynamic ecosystem. The modern African lodge has eight spacious safaris cottage, two grass thatched luxurious tents, elegantly furnished open terrace for each cottage and tents, two ensuite bathrooms in each cottage, king size / twin beds, game drivers, walking safaris, boating trips etc . Selous Kinga Lodge guarantees every guest - top class amenities and facilities, a genuine warm hospitality..

                My place is close to the beach and the airport. You’ll love my place because of the comfy bed and the sea view as you sleep. The sound of sea waves every night and every morning. A direct way to the beach and morning walk on the beach. . My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
