We traveled the fairly short distance from Dar es Salaam last month with three families - two of us with two children ages 9 - 12. While we've lived most of the last 10 years in Tanzania this was our first visit to lovely Kisampa, and we will definitely be returning soon! The hosts take good care of you and ensure you have the meals and drinks you desire, as well as activities to keep you busy if you so desire. I spent part of the day doing yoga overlooking the lovely plains and listening to birds while my friends had a walk through the bush. The kids were thoroughly pleased with the adventure playing on the river in canoes and the campfire each evening. Thanks!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kisampa is set in a pristine, wild area in eastern Tanzania. The region is filled with ox-bow lakes, riverine forests, open grassland, wild rolling hills and steep ridges that provide breath taking views of the surrounding areas. The diverse habitat makes it a birders paradise. Wildlife is shy but increasing with the protection now provided in the sanctuary. This is a private community conservation sanctuary adjacent to the unique coastal Saadani National Park. Situated on a remote hilltop with a vista of the plains below, Kisampa is a special place. So special, in fact, that some of the AfrikaAfrika team live here permanently! Kisampa is the ultimate bush retreat - a place where you can turn off from all the stress, pressure and noise. This place has been brilliant for yoga retreats, personal meditation and simply the ultimate place to wind down. This is furthermore a birders paradise and Kisampa has a few secluded birding platforms where you can spend the day relaxing and watching some of east Africa's finest bird life. We also pride ourselves here with divine "country style" lunches of freshly baked bread from our brick oven, hearty soups and salads along fresh seasonal fruit for desert. Here we offer you a personal journey, an experience full of meaning - not just another destination. We will lead you on a superb exploration that will take you into the heart of this amazing little piece of Africa. Because it's our own sanctuary, you won't bump into other safari-goers anywhere on Kisampa. We keep your experience intimate and personal. This is an adventure that will get you thinking. It will stretch your mind (just as much as your legs) and Africa will get under your skin. Welcome to Kisampa - Where Africa awakens your soul! ... more less
