      Ras Kutani

      The Perfect Place to Relax

      Tanzania's coastal vegetation is lush and dotted with many small farming villages, where clusters of thatched huts stand under palm and papaya trees. Being driven south of Dar es Salaam, you'll leave the city surprisingly quickly as tar gives way to gravel, and pavements to swaying palm trees. Ras Kutani is set on a crescent of white sandy beach flanked by a freshwater lagoon and a coastal forest. The lodge is situated 22 miles south of Dar es Salaam. Home to a scattered, well-appointed cluster of bandas, peace and tranquility is assured. Long stretches of pristine beach and warm blue seas offer romantic hideaways and total relaxation before or after the excitement of a bush safari. The nine beach cottages are scattered on either side of the main building, all with ocean views and gentle breezes. Under the thatch, a spacious veranda unfurls with comfortable seating and hammocks. The hard wood shutters lead through to the beautifully decorated interiors; the majestic double bed and fan surrounded by a billowing mosquito net and on to the generous en-suite bathroom. Or choose accommodation in one of the four secluded suites steps from the main building where the only company you have are the chattering monkeys. The cascading panoramic view down to the ocean is the quintessential tropical backdrop to the private plunge pool and array of outside seating. Also available is the family house, situated above the main camp with blissful sea views. The house comprises of spacious en-suite rooms, linked by an expansive terrace with built in seating. Relaxation is the keynote at Ras Kutani. The temperate seas and proximity of coral reefs ensure a wealth of marine life and interest for those keen on snorkeling. For those who prefer a somewhat drier experience, kayaks are available to explore the freshwater lagoon. Nature lovers will find their pleasure close to home. The tropical, coastal forest behind the lodge boasts some 132 different species of trees in many of which one can watch the antics of four species of monkey, including the spectacular black-and-white Colobus. Next to this forest walk, one can also make a visit to the village nearby to taste Swahili life.
