This simple hotel combines good food, friendly and helpful staff, and comfortable rooms. The decor is slightly on the cheesy side. One of our rooms had a spa-like bath and quaint furnishings in the bedroom. It had a gorgeous terrace with a pleasant view. The other room which was meant to accommodate three people with three twin beds left a... More

we had booked a cottage which was smaller than expected but neatly and aesthetically done up.the bathrooms had warm water and were basic and clean! They do not have room service.....but a nice cafeteria where one can eat.The food is ok. The place has a nice feel. What was disappointing is the way the owner was quite indifferent to Asians...

I stayed at Tan Swiss for 9 nights-had intended to stay only 4 but enjoyed the peaceful relaxing atmosphere and exploring the local area, just wandering around. Travelling alone yet I was given one of the newer rooms designed for 3, and found it delightful. Appreciated the wandering geese and Guinea Fowl also! My safari guide, Samwel, was excellent, seemed... More

I stayed at Tan Swiss lodge for one night with 2 friends. We booked the double rooms. Room was ok, clean and spacious. Bathroom was average, shower heads did not work properly and should be replaced. Other than that the place is a good alternative to the more expensive lodges in Mikumi. Food was ok, extensive menu for everyone's taste.We... More

Rather good food,normal rooms. There was no troubles with electricity and hot water. Rooms have condos. 7 minutes drive from the entrance of Mikumi National Park.Staff is friendly enough. From Dar Es Salaam it is about 6 hours drive, be ready:)

Should you be in need of overnight accommodation, Tan Swiss Lodge is a clean and welcoming option. You can get a decent meal from the restaurant and relax and unwind before your next hard day's travel. Our twins of 6 were very impressed with the jungle gym! Something to get rid of some energy after 7 days in the car!... More

If you are looking for decent quality accommodation in Mikumi, stay at Tan-Swiss. Much cheaper than lodges in the park and much better than Genesis Motel next door ( though to be fair it's a LONG time since I went to Genesis. ) Tan-Swiss has good rooms, which are clean and of a good size and have mosquito nets and...

This placefeels like a hidden Oasis located less than ten minutes from Mikumi Ntl Park. It is run by a Swiss guy. The first night, the AC broke. And the owner gave us a discount! Which I greatly appreciated! When in Africa, you can't expect everything to work like in the western world. It was nice to be in a... More

Stayed here just before Xmas - well placed for safaris in Mikumi National Park, hotel has its own vehicles with driver/guide available. Rooms are not luxury but adequate and clean with en suite and small terrace, good for collapsing after half-day animal-watching, tho that can continue at the hotel as guinea fowl and other exotica roam and the birdlife in...
