Tembo Kijani EcoLodge

A Little piece of Paradise

Tembo Kijani EcoLodge invites you to enter into a little piece of paradise that combines a stunning beach with lots of untouched, indigenous coastal nature, and to get a glimpse of Tanzania’s wildlife wonders on a private safari into the unique Saadani National Park without missing the comfort to relax on your vacation. Sit on your veranda listening to the crickets, the whistling of the palm leaves and the waves of the ocean and discover strikingly colorful birds and butterflies whirling through the lush greenery. Take a stroll on this secluded strip of white coral sand beach, where you won’t meet a soul and let the waves caress your feet and the fresh ocean breeze blow through your hair and clear your mind while watching the local dhows on the horizon.
