Tides Lodge is a small and intimate beach lodge 40 minutes flight north of Dar es Salaam and situated on the endless white sands of Pangani beach, voted one of the best beaches in the world by the Sunday Times.
Tides Lodge is laidback rustic relaxation at its best, situated in an unspoilt corner of Tanzania. It is perfect for people who do not require total luxury, but want to get away from it all - an excellent place for families and honeymooners and excellent value. There are nine self-contained cottages, including two spacious family cottages. Each cottage is large and comfortable, with king-size beds, en-suite bathrooms and private verandas. The Family Cottages have two big bedrooms and living area. All the cottages are situated right on the beach with a private sun bathing area.
The food is excellent, based largely on local produce and seafood. The restaurant and bar are on the beach, with great views and cooled by a refreshing sea breeze. There is also a swimming pool if guests want a break from the Indian Ocean.
Activities include long walks, boogie-boarding, deep-sea fishing, dhow trips, snorkelling and picnic trips to local sand banks, diving, kite and windsurfing, biking and massages. Day trips to Saddani National Park can be arranged as well as cultural tours of Pangani.
