So I arrived in Tanzania from Nigeria hoping for the most authentic experience possible for my first visit to the eastern side of my continent. I wanted to go on Safari and my friend suggested Mikumi National Park. With many hostels dotted around Mikumi, I was convinced by the description of the Tan-Swiss hostel being owned by a Tanzanian and... 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

I stayed at the Tan Swiss lodge for 3 nights stay .I found it to be excellent value and they organised a 4x4 one day safari in the national park Nkumi. Leaving at 7 am returning at 6pm they paid the entrance fee as they only accept visa card payments. The room was newly built and clean with tv and... More

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 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
