For somewhere not too expensive I was very impressed by this place. We booked a few nights stay here including all meals plus two full day safaris. It was brilliant. The location was great just off the main road from Dar - Iringa which meant we could hop off a bus just outside. We were greeted by very friendly staff... More

We recently stayed with a group of 14 young people as part of a month long expedition. We spent one night at this excellent campsite and were delighted with the cleanliness and facilities offered at the campsite shower/toilet block, and the quality of food in the restaurant. The owner and staff were exceptionally helpful and after we returned from our... More

Stayed one night. I was pleased with the clean bathroom and hot shower, not to mention the huge bed in my room (after a month camping)! It is a quirky little place with plenty of character and a great location to begin a safari from. You can hire a jeep with driver for the day. The ladies who waited on... More

We stayed three nights at Tan Swiss Lodge and were very happy with our choice. The staff is friendly and helpful. We received a bungalow with spacious bathroom and terrace. Breakfast starts early and is abundant. And a beer at the bar at night, after whole day in the park, was relaxing. We also appreciated the lunchboxes, decent and well... More

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

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
