Many of the basics have been covered in other reviews here....The rooms, staff, food, pool, and location were all good-to-great (especially for the modest price)! However, what really impressed us was the help we received when we had unexpected car trouble! We live in Dar and were excited to take our own 4WD SUV into Mikumi Park, rather than paying... More

A cool atmosphere, nice food coupled with excellent service. It makes it a good stopover close to mikumi National park, UDZUNGWA falls or on transit to Southern Highlands of Tanzania. swimming in the sun makes it all exciting. The rooms are quite clean and you may want to try some outdoor camping.

Unfriendly staff. During our stay we did not feel welcome at all. Nobody welcomed us when we arrived and nobody said goodbye when we legt. The rooms were very basic but ok. The swimmingpool was nice for the kids.

The lodge offers nice bungalows and family with up to 2 children can stay inside but be aware it's only one room. Unfortunately there is no frigde in the bungalow. You have... More

I led a team of twenty volunteers on a trip to Tanzania in June 2016. I had received good reports from previous volunteer groups and I was not disappointed. I arranged our stay and park tour by e-mail from Ireland. The responses were quick and clear. Our cars were ready and waiting for us on arrival and we lost no... More

Stayed at Tan Swiss for one night. The place was close to the training centre which we were visiting and they had recommended us Tan Swiss. The place is off the main highway and right next to the national park. The facilities are good considering its a lodge. The food served in the restaurant is pretty good and it was... More

We spent one night here during our two day safari tour to Mikumi Park. The lodge is quite close to Mikumi Park entrance (just 10 minute ride on your jeep). The receiption is quite friendly and fast, the cabin was more than we had been expecting. Very cosy and comfortable, especially for bed and breakfast activities. There some problems with... More

Stayed here for one night for a safari. Being advertised under Swiss ownership I would have expected more. Accommodation is great, clean, spacious rooms, comfortable bed and TV. Would be good though if WiFi reaches until the cottage. Had challenged to amend the AC temperature and no hot water on the shower. Our dinner was below standard. The zurcher gschnetzeltes... More

This place is quaint and at the same time impeccably managed. The rooms are very well designed and equipped, everything works well, and the sleep is comfortable and quiet. Excellent restaurant on site, nothing fancy but they get their basics right, the beer is cold, and the staff very friendly. A great stop when coming up from the South, and... More

We were visiting Mikumi national park for a short trip. It took us almost 7 hours to get there from Dar due to lots of trucks on the road. Return trip was just below 6 hours. Lodge is very practical and well taken care of. Intact moskito nets, lobby area sprayed for longer term moskito prevention. Therefore very safe to... More
