“Adorable tree house room!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We spent one night in this camp and really enjoyed the originality of the room. it looks like a tree house. the bathroom is downstairs and the bed is upstairs with a great balcony and privacy. this hotel is located on the beach. Simple but clean.

I have previously camped here, but this time stayed in a double story, traditional-inspired banda. They are quite charming. Reasonably steep stairs to the bedroom and balcony with table and chairs and hammock. Unfortunately these are away from the beach, so there is no beach view, but the forest is peaceful.
Bed - large bed (a couple of large mattresses pushed together) on a platform. Comfortable. Simple linen (hot all year round so no doona).
Bathroom - basic but good hot water and pressure
Lighting - very dim
Powerpoints - only one socket down stairs, and ours didn't work
Mozzies - not mozzie-proof, but good mozzie net over the bed
Heating / cooling - no fan, so quite still and I imagine uncomfortable in the summer

Beach - lovely, but didn't swim
Food - service is a bit slow; food average (for Tanzania)
Other - pergolas and under cover areas (one with power sockets and TV) to use and enjoy the atmosphere and have a drink slightly away from the bar

The rooms were a pleasant surprise though lugging bags up to your bedroom area is a slight chore. The rooms-huts were double story and the doors opened to a wonderful balcony though i had no real beach view you could hear it. The only electric socket was down stairs for charging in a cupboard and the bathroom was there too. Excellent water pressure and hot too. All very clean but lots of mozzies and a few gekkos around to catch them! The grounds had mongeese running around and there were arm guards. the beach was lovely as was the bar, didnt eat here though. The net was availble and a little patchy , staff that i encountered were lovely esp the young bar keep though the owner seemed a little distant.

we have visited this place countless times, the most recent one being just last weekend. Erna & Dale, the couple that manages this place and their staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. We like to come here to get away from the chaotic city life. The food is excellent every time.

Just remember to bring a mosquito repelent...

if you just want the beach, good food & some rest, this is the place. We highly recommend Kipepeo Beach.

We stayed in the bandas by the beach for one night, which was fine. They have a shared bathroom so it's just one step up from camping. The bed was comfortable and it had a decent mosquito net but there were some bitey insects around.

The food was average and a bit pricey but otherwise ok. Service was disinterested and a bit slow.

The beach is nice. There is some rubbish around but that's to be expected at a beach so close to the city centre. There are nicer beaches on Zanzibar but if you don't have time the water here is turquoise and great for swimming.

Room Tip: There are cheap bandas by the beach or you can pay four times the price for your own cabin with a ba...

I stayed two nights at Kipepeo, pretty good facilities, and I enjoyed the food, although a bit pricy compared to other places I visited. I liked the free wifi, a treat! I was shocked that the water was so warm off the coast of Dar. If I went back to Dar, I would consider staying again here.

While the rooms, location, food, and service at Kipepeo Beach Camp were fine, we were deeply disappointed with the beach. It would've been gorgeous, EXCEPT, the staff would put piles of rubbish that washed up on their beach back out on the beach for high tide to take it away. It was DISGUSTING. I couldn't enjoy myself watching the kids pick through the trash finding old shoes, broken combs, shampoo bottles, and there was even glass! We walked up and down the beach, and it seemed no one else had this practice of putting the rubbish out for the ocean sweep away. Strange. Definitely would not recommend this place as long as they continue this practice of handling waste.
