The Tides

Nestled in a secluded and idyllic stretch of the Tanzanian coast, where the Indian Ocean laps the shores of East Africa, there can be found a small and intimate beach lodge of unique distinction.
The nearby fish fertile marine parks, the centuries of sea-faring Swahili culture, the deep-sea fishing paradise and Game Park fabled for ocean-bathing elephant and lion, make this beach lodge the perfect haven for those in search of peaceful tranquillity, special interest activities and an Africa untouched by modern tourism.

NUMBER OF ROOMS & DESCRIPTION:
A stay at The Tides offers the elemental charm and back to basics luxury that is the perfect balm to a hurried safari, tiring trek or frantic lifestyle. This discreet and charming lodge consists of 7 colourful and spacious beachside cabanas, with en-suite facilities, and a host of exceptional features that integrate the visitor seamlessly into the surrounding environment. The rustic makuti-thatch roofs that ripple in the Indian Ocean breeze, vibrant Caribbean architecture and collection of traditional artifacts and Swahili furniture conspire to create a distinctly unique environment in which to unwind your mind for anything from a few days to a few weeks.

RESTAURANTS & BAR:
The restaurant, soothed by sea breezes, serves up a sumptuous global cuisine that brings together contemporary Pacific-Rim flair, European classics and new world tastes with a lavish array of seafood, brought daily by dhow-borne fishermen to your table. The lamp-lit dinners, set to the serenading surf-sigh of the Indian Ocean, make for a definitively romantic experience. The beachside bar completes this vision of paradise with an exotic repertoire of lush cocktails, ice-cold beers and tropical juices to slake your thirst and cool your brow.

OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
As if the bleached-white sands, crystalline jade seas and calming sway of the palm trees were not reason enough for a visit, The Tides offers a unique range of activities with which to introduce the visitor to the surrounding attractions. Be at snorkeling off the nearby Maziwi Island atoll, a sunset cruise up the Pangani River or day Safari to the adjacent Saadani Game Reserve, where bush meets the beach. These unique excursions offer a rarely seen insight into Tanzanian coastal life.
