The views are simply breathtaking. Waking up on a foggy morning to see the sunrise is just magical. The lake was by far my favorite part of my entire stay, it was so easy to just relax and let time just drift past... Definitely going again!!
This place is underrated and unspoken crown jewel, full of unimaginably scenic sights and recreational activities like camping, boat rides, Hiking with a top notch custumer care and well receiving neighboring villagers.
Pro tips: if you are to visit I recommend 2-3 night especially if you are a couple, although even if you are single its not boring, I also recommend camping over self contained rooms since the camp is just by the lake and make you more connected to the environment
This place is gorgeous. You get to stay in a rustic lodge with wonderful hosts. The forests and gardens in and around the property are stunning and the lake is perfect for relaxing, hiking, sunbathing, swimming, anything.
Yes,the photos are not Photoshop-ed it is amazing as it is in the pictures but just better when your there.
Thumbs up for the hospitality and customer services.
The plae is amazing. Jerry is the perfect host and tries everything to ensure his guests will have an unforgettable stay. Apart from enjoying the intersting hiking trips or take a swim in the lake, you can relax on the terrace and just read a book. Its the pure holiday! A must for every nature lover or hiking fan. Its a unique place in entire East Africa and Jerry and his friendly staff will do everything to give you a wonderful time in the mountains. Also for couples very suitable - romantic hours at the bon fire included! Definetely again
We had the most amazing time! Felt so good disconnecting from the world here. The lake, the forest, the views were truly magical! Jeremy and his wife were the best hosts. We were treated very well, it felt like home. I look forward to coming back- especially for that cardamom tea
An impromptu trip with a group of friends to a place that I've heard so many great things abou, we had to check it out for ourselves. Little did I know I had set my friends and I to a magical experience we would never forget.
From Dar es Salaam, it's a good 5 hr drive. there is also a small airport in Tanga, which you can get a flight from Dar, then it's a short drive to the estate. Best to leave very early in the morning to avoid the many police checks along the way.
The host, Jeremy(legend), provides a brief history of the estate and then let's you choose you preferred activities for your stay. Various hikes, bike ride and some history along the way, finishing at the man-made lake was what was we choose, and we didn't regret it. You can bring your own drinks and music to enjoy the day at the lake.
Do make a trip to this fabulous place. A good weekend is just the escape you need to be one with nature and bound with friend and family. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
**also notice how the lake looks like the entrance to Wakanda( Black Panther)??? Told ya'll, MAGIC!!
