This place was our first stop after a long drive from Dar with my Swiss friends. The hotel is well situated near Mikumi. Staff was friendly, nice and clean rooms, good breakfast. If you are in that area you should stop for a break!

A friend and I stayed at the Tan Swiss during our safari in Mikumi National Park. The room was lovely and very clean, with a fantastic en suite bathroom and the best shower of our 2 week holiday! The food was good, but unfortunately given it was low season there were very few other guests and the restaurant did slightly... More

Nice relaxed, clean place. It has a nice open restaurant area with a bar and it also has a pool. Wouldnt recommend going in the pool, we went in but it was a bit murky! Not cheap compared to Tanzanian run places, i think we paid $50 a night for a double room. V close to the park though, which... More

We always stay at tan swiss lodge whenever we visit mikumi. Great location and comfortable rooms. Idle place for family with kids. There is a swimming pool and huge area for kids to run around. The staff are helpful and friendly. Food is okay but slight improvement needed. Maybe a bit more selection for the breakfast buffet. Overall it's a... More

Tan Swiss was a nice place to access the Mikumi National Park, just down the road a little way. It is set off the main road. The rooms are nice, the lodge and restaurant are comfortable to enjoy time outside of the park. The Swiss Rosti on he menu is wonderful.

Accommodations within or close to Tanzanian parks are usually expensive, or very expensive. Mikumi NP is no exception. Tan-Swiss is conveniently located to allow day trips to this beautiful park. And the price is about right. Then of course, you wont find any frills in this simple lodge, which is almost a motel: room furnitures are simple and could be... More

i would like to thank Monika and her coworkers from reception of Tanswiss. She and her friends helped us to find and book our trip to and stay in Moshi. Our safari from Tanswiss was excellent, too. Thank you
