My family and I only stayed there for a night but we had a great time. The elevated banda we got was big enough for all 5 of us and although it's was fairly open to the elements and mosquitos, neither bothered us during the night. The hammock on the balcony was also a great hit with the kids. There's... More

Having been at Kipepeo last August we were happy that we could grab the chance and go again! And we loved it again! The huge bed, the hammock on the veranda, the "natural" air conditioning, the beach, the food, well simply everything was great! We are looking forward to come back soon!

When you go by the ferry from the city centre of Dar es Salaam and reach the south coast Kigamboni, a bajaji (motorcycle cab) will bring you to Kipepeo Beach Village within 15 minutes for 6,000 shillings. You can get accommodation or you can just enjoy a meal. The food here is very good. And it is served warm! That... More

We stayed 2 nights at this resort before hopping onto our overland truck north to Arusha. We managed to get a 3-person elevated bandas that was really quite comfortable and refreshing, since we were there in July. Comfortable, clean and safe...what else could you want? The resort is situated away from Dar close to the ferry that would take us... More

I love this hotel, its rooms are amazing, clean with huge beds. A three person room can sleep above 5, so for 3, was gigantic and spacious. Each room had a balcony with a hammock, table and chairs and if your lucky you can have an amazing view of the sea and beach. In each of these rooms there is... More

Camped here for one night with my 8 year old son. It's a regular daytime beach place for us, but not stayed over night before this trip. Campsite was adequate and we pitched very close to the beach, behind wooden security fence. Small banda with seats as cooking area. Security seemed good (there can be problems on the beach in...

After having had a nightmare experience at the Genesis Motel (no website available and that may not be a bad thing because it does not deserve the name motel and even less a website!), it is with trepidation that Maria and I entered the Kipepeo Campsite. We had to drive a very long distance from the city of Dar es... More

The beach is beautiful here and the sea quite shallow for quite a distance going out. The accommodation is clean and very basic take a torch as the lights are not very good in the rooms. Our shower washed the whole bathroom before falling to bits and the toilet cistern broke and flooded the whole bathroom apart from the above... More

The Chalets, elevated buildings with a bed on a raised platform are build in such a way that even airconditioning is not needed, the sea breeze gently blows through the room. The balcony with the hammock is ideal for a rest or enjoying the many birds or banded mongoose roaming around. The beach is clean, white and the indian ocean... More
