I live in Dar es Salaam and have visited Simbamwenni countless times over the last few years. The safari tents are perfect for one or two people on a weekend trip, and the cabins are great to have a group. They've kindly accommodated me bringing my dog as well. The pool is AMAZING after a long day of hiking, and the food is exceptional. I've also gone to Simbamwenni for a weekend just to read and enjoy the property's mountain views and palms. Elias and his family have become great friends to me and the entire staff is so lovely. 11/10 review for Simbamwenni! It is the ONLY place in Morogoro I recommend to my friends and family!

I came for business. What a lovely respite to come to a location after a long workday that has tents, chalets, trees and birds . It's so much nicer than staying in a dingy or run-down hotel in Morogoro town (most of them!). Wonderful staff, great pool, honour bar for soft drinks, wine & beer. Note that it is a 10-minute drive to downtown if you need to go there.

Found this campsite on Google maps and overnighted here on the road between Kisolanza old farmhouse south of Iringa, and Peponi near Tanga. It's perfectly positioned on this road. The signage is being improved we believe. It's out of town so nice and quiet, and the food is home-cooking style, we had the boneless roast chicken - delicious. Stayed one night in a luxury chalet family room, where every little detail was thought of. Friendly helpful staff and cosy atmosphere, recommended!

This lodge is located on the outskirts of Morogoro away from traffic and people. There is food, liquor, a pool, space to camp if you have tents, and the owner even made us ice in his machine so we could have it with our gin and tonic. Google Earth gave us two locations for this lodge and the first was not correct so do not get discouraged if you don't find it right away!
