    Wild with class

    The lodge was exciting. The wildlife was abundant and Ngezi forest was just around the corner. Ceilia and Mike went out of their way to make our stay comfortable from design details to travel assistance. The diving and snorkeling experts made our trip more interesting and informative. Enjoyed the Masai wait staff and the sunsets we’re beyond nd compare.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The effort to get up to lodge is definitely worth it. Cecilia made me feel at home right away in the comfortable clean rooms. The food was great, definitely try the fish curry and fish kabobs. Special tanks to Glen Campbell and the dive shop staff for a very professionally run operation that made diving in the pristine reefs a true joy. Besides the great room, food, staff and diving one of my favorite memories will be watching the bioflorence light up the breaking waves off beach side deck.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Très bien

    Les plongées à Pemba ont été toutes formidables avec Mike. Il fait vraiment attention à vous faire plonger sur des sites avec la meilleure visibilité possible et n'hésite pas à faire 30 minutes de bateau en plus pour trouver le bon spot. Les breaks d'une heure entre les plongées sur des plages paradisiaques et isolées sont en soi des expériences merveilleuses. Le lodge est confortable et calme, on peut voir le soleil se coucher le soleil alors qu'on se baigne dans l'eau chaude de la petite plage. Le seul problème est le prix et la qualité des plats proposés au restaurant.

    Le meilleur rapport qualité prix pour un séjour au nord de l'île Pemba... Sur le front de mer, et très bien entretenu. Merci à Glen et Alla pour leur accueil chaleureux !
