Beautiful place, this was our second destination on our honeymoon, 3 to 4 hour drive from Dar es Salaam airport depending on the day, we were awestruck on the way, the drive through Dar itself, with plenty of villages and sites on the way I wouldn't say it was boring drive, Ray and Kassim picked us up and were very...

We stayed at Simply Saadani at the end of a two week safari holiday arranged by Tent with a View. It was an absolute joy to be there, to unwind and relax after our time on safari. The bandas were ideally situated, literally on the beach and were clean and had everything you needed. There is soft seating inside as...

Took a while to get here but it was worth the drive, especially as we saw a leopard and elephants on the way. Robinson Crusoe type accommodation right on the beach and what a beach! Fantastic!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Simply Saadani camp for just over a week on a photographic holiday! I have travelled alot in my life and I can honestly say it was the most special place I have ever visited. The Banda accommodation is beautifully built using sustainable local materials, with incredibly furnished, rustic interiors and cleaned daily....

We spent the first part of our honeymoon here and I have to say it couldn't start any better. The room was very nice and we felt like being in the middle of nowhere, which made everything so quite and relaxing. The game driver is so knowledgeable and he thought us so much about the animals we saw, it was...

I enjoyed staying here, the lodge has an incredible view and beautiful beach. The rooms were okay for a tented lodge, fairly outdated. And some of the staff were great, but others not as customer service oriented. It wouldn't have phased me if we weren't paying so much per night. The food was really good, albeit it sparse for lunch....

Absolutely some of the best days in our lives! Wonderful staff, great game drives with the best of guides. A lot of good food. The best of lullabies? Of course the Indian ocean! Great bandas and the best of service. Love this place! We will be back!

We spent five nights in the bush rover (the tent with a view). The staff were excellent and the food at all three camp sites was great. The only downside (if you can call it that) was we had heavy rain when camping in Ngorongoro and there wasn't a contingency plan. Maybe having an awning to sit under for meals...

The deserted sandy beach is perfect for beachcombing, and the clear sea is safe for swimming.There are just 11 beachfront tented rooms (or "bandas") including 3 family suites with en suite bathrooms and solar powered hot water and electric lighting.
