Situated on the edge of the Tanzanian coast lies The Tides Lodge and Mawimbi Villa on the beautifully untouched and secluded Ushongo Beach.
Just offshore is the Maziwe Marine reserve with the magical Maziwe island, a sandbank that only emerges at low tide where great efforts are taken to conserve the precious reef line making one of the most incredible snorkeling and diving spots on earth!
Both lodges are easily accessible with an airstrip just minutes away and daily chartered flights.
The Tides Lodge comprising of seven beach cottages and two-family houses offers peaceful & airy ocean front bungalows set on the idyllic, palm fringed and secluded beach. Designed as the ultimate destination for relaxation, guests can choose to unwind on their veranda and stretch out on the pristine sands. For those who are more active, there are a wide range of activities to partake in such as kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, yoga and kite surfing. Pangani village is full of history and culture, a tour through the village and cruise along the river makes for an interestingly diverse afternoon! The lodge itself is deliberately low key and relaxed yet offering the best levels of service and delicious cuisine.
Mawimbi Villa was built for the owners and is a luxury family home on the quiet and secluded peninsular of Ushongo beach. The house comprises of six bedrooms. Two of which are en-suite, two double rooms with a shared bathroom and the other a double room & child room with bunk beds that share a full bathroom. This is family paradise, with total privacy, excellent service and deliciously fresh food. Guests can either relax by the pool or partake in any of the activities outlined above.
Unlike the hustle and bustle of Zanzibar, this spot makes for the ultimate relaxing beach holiday!
