A Diver's Dream!

We came to Zanzibar for diving and had some really amazing dives in Zanzibar. With that being said, the coral and the fish were amazing if you get the chance to diversify the dive trips, would recommend it. We had a great time diving, visibility was great, and we even saw a whale shark during our dive, which is very rare. 
The lodge management and staff were very nice and the rooms were great. Loved the room, the bathroom was very large and it was a great way to wind down and relax. The restaurant staff was great and friendly and everyone very accommodating. I would recommend this place to every diver who wants to experience Zanzibar diving."

Pure luxury in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere

We stayed in the Matemwe Lodge for a week and it was fabulous! The large and clean bungalows have a very big bathroom with shower and bath. The bungalows (including comfortable hammock) have great views overlooking the reef where Fisherman's boats come and go throughout the day. Several excursions can be booked like game fishing, scuba-diving, Catamaran sailing, massage in the self-owned Spa,Stone town visit, etc..The restaurant serves great food and the staff always welcomes you with a smile! Due to the limited number of rooms and guests this place has a homely and intimate feel to it."

Experience of A life time!

This was our favorite camp of our 10 day Tanzanian Safari. The rooms were spectacular, the staff was amazing, and the managers were great. We’ve never been treated so well. Wildlife was abundant even in the camp. We had a herd of elephants living in the camp with us and as a result needed escorts to get to and from our room at night (and even during the day). They had an awesome pool that was built into a natural rock formation. The views over the Northern Serengetti with the bluffs of the Masi Mara in the distance were great.

The area around the camp had an abundance of wildlife that was very active. We spend two full days here, but could have spent more. I wouldn’t recommend spending any less especially if coming at the time of the migration. We lucked out and got to see three river crossings even though we were past the season for them. Truly spectacular and the highlight of our trip. We also saw cheetah, lion, and leopard cubs multiple times within a 15 minute drive of the camp."

A memorable and hugely exciting stay in a very friendly camp

We arrived at Kwihala rather jaded after a long journey, interrupted by a rather delayed flight. However, our welcome at the airstrip by assistant guide Levarde and our subsequent 3 day safari obliterated all tiredness. A really great welcome, an amazingly good and knowledgeable guide, Pietro, who had a great sense of humour and real skill at navigating the bush at exciting speeds. Having a head guide and an assistant/trainee who helps to spot game is a great advantage.We were privileged to have superb sightings of leopard every day of our stay, but perhaps more due to Pietro's skill than luck, plus very close encounters with a multitude of lion, and cheetah, elephant, zebra, kudu etc.etc. Sarah runs a very happy and friendly home base. Tents well sited for privacy, and well appointed without being ritzy - you really feel that you are "on the land". We must go back."

Fabulous Stay at an Unforgettable Place

I can’t say enough good things about this camp, their staff, and its location. From the moment we stepped off the plane and were greeted by our guide, Reuben, we were made to feel welcome, and most importantly, comfortable and safe. When we arrived at camp, Richard, the manager, really made us feel at home. Our three boys, aged 11, 13 and 15, shared a tent, and my husband and I had the tent next to it. It was incredible to have such comfortable accommodations in such a remote place - flush toilet, hot bucket shower, an actual bed, and a lounge area."

Desperate to go back!

I still can't get over what an amazing time we had during our stay here. For those looking for the 'typical' African setting, I would say that Ruaha National Park would be the place for you and this camp cannot be missed. Sarah, the manager, was so incredibly welcoming, setting the standard for the staff and we were not disappointed - Lorenzo and Saidi made an awesome team, spotting cheetah for us with ease (how they see it from hundreds of metres away still blows my mind) and ticking off every single animal on our list. I really miss getting up (the only time 5:15am has been a welcome time!) to get going on our daily adventure, although the tents were a little bit difficult to leave!

What fantastic accommodation - huge bed in a spacious tent, separate en suite with flushing toilet and bucket shower, as well as electric lights and a socket to charge cameras etc. Whilst it did get very hot in the day (noticeable when you returned for lunch and had a couple of hours in the afternoon to relax - maybe a fan could be provided?), it cooled down in the evening and we slept very well.
Now, the food - I still can't get over the standard of the food....cheese souffle in the bush?! Banoffee pie?! Julius, our chef, really outdid himself. I honestly don't have a bad thing to say about it... Well except maybe I enjoyed the food a bit too much (my clothes are not being particularly forgiving). Overall, I am absolutely in love with this camp. I really hope we get the opportunity to return in the future, and I urge anybody who has not been to put this on their list."

An incredibly wonderful experience

Three nights at this camp was the perfect ending to our African adventure, with everything we hoped for and much more. All the staff were friendly and professional. The meals were varied and invariably delicious. Our two tents were roomy and comfortable with gripping views of the savannah, migration and distant hills from our opening.

The variety and closeness to the wildlife was outstanding, from a pride of lion with cubs to the innumerable thousands of wildebeests interspersed throughout with zebra, antelope and other game). We had heard the location north of the Mara River was best, but had no idea that it was so away from the crowds and noise on the south side. (We had the entire north side practically to ourselves, with some help from a washed out bridge, and saw only one other land rover on our side in two long days of game driving). A truly exceptional camp, quietly elegant and attentive to our wishes and the environment without anything "over the top". We would love to repeat at this or one of their other locations."

Wonderful experience

From the moment Mesenga picked us up at the airstrip until five days later when unfortunately it was time to say good bye everything was perfect. It is a fantastic camp, Mesenga a brilliant guide and Richard a fantastic host. The team was wonderful and the cook was a genius. We enjoyed every second of our five night stay. Wildlife was fantastic.

We saw several crossings, one lasted over 90 minutes and the highlight was the lion mum with her three week old cubs. Lots of opportunities for great photographs. It was really a pleasure to see the migration from the Tanzanian side, far away from the crowds in Kenya. The true highlight of our trip and one that can make a difference was however the visit to the local school in the village. It appears that we were the first ones that had asked to visit the school. Most visitors arrive by plane but I can only encourage you to visit also the village to get an experience of real life outside the national park. Some kids were scared as they had not seen a car before nor any white kids. We can only encourage those that come after us to do so too. The school looks like a construction site. The class rooms, teachers houses, teachers office, toilets etc. need finishing. We had brought some footballs and school material from Belgium but in addition bought Tanzanian school books for all the kids in the local village store but a lot more is needed."

When heart and soul are also key ingredients

We spent 5 nights at Matemwe with our 15 year old daughter and it was an exquisite stay. Everything was perfect. From the wonderful greeting that left one feeling like a minor celebrity :-) to our departure the friendly staff were helpful, attentive, genuine and professional at all times without ever being obsequious.The rooms and facilities are exactly what we like - stylish yet simple, luxurious without being ostentatious. The lodge is in harmony with its surroundings and the relationship with the local community respectful and engaged. Meals were excellent. We were very active and made good use of the surrounding beaches and sea from dawn till dusk to snorkel frequently swim, walk, sail and generally justify the delicious 3 meals a day."

Perfect place, wonderful service, unforgettable experiences

Driving around with the camp's safari vehicle is perfect for discovering the local fauna and flora, including giraffes, elephants, and some of the rarest antilopes in the world. Adventurers can track Elephant on walking safaris led by the camps experienced safari guides (special thanks to Hamza, our guide). Or why not go fishing in lake Victoria with Henk, the camp's manager, who has been a professional sports fisher for more than 15 years? The fish you will catch will be deliciously prepared by the camp's chef, who did an excellent job preparing delightful meals everyday. My personal favorite is his basil/lime sorbet, absolutely wonderful!"
