My family spent 6 nights at this wonderful lodge, hidden away at the end of a long and bumpy road! The gardens of the lodge are lush, there is a private beach and stunning views of near-by ruins. Marina and Haji were gracious and kind hosts. We spent half the time on outings (Spice Tour, Stone Town) and half on the beach, simply relaxing. The tour guides and taxi drivers arranged by Haji were wonderful. Food at the lodge was the best we had on our vacation in Tanzania- fresh seafood, wonderful breads and vegetable dishes and local fruit. Our last night Haji arranged a barbecue and brought in local musicians from the town. Marina was so trusting and sweet- there had been a problem with my bank transfer to pay for the accommodations and Marina trusted me to send her the balance via PayPal once I returned to the states. If you want an intimate and friendly experience in paradise, I highly recommend the Mangrove Lodge. I hope we can return some day!
