On the Tanzania coast, 45 kilometres south of Dar es Salaam, Ras Kutani is in a perfect spot for the ideal end to a safari. This beach lodge is on a beautiful stretch of unspoilt coastline and is beside a fresh water lagoon for kayaking and snorkelling.

The main guest areas include lounge areas and a dining area under a large airy thatch structure. Hammocks are scattered around and there is a spectacular pool.

A secluded retreat, the main purpose of Ras Kutani is to help guests unwind. However, for the more active guests body boarding, snorkelling and kayaking are all on offer, as well as guided walks to local villages. Superb nature walks along the lagoon or to the indigenous coastal forest, home to three species of primates, are also available on request.

The accommodation at Ras Kutani is split into nine beach cottages, four suites and a family hill house. The beach cottages are dotted around the main building whilst the suites are deeper into the coastal forest for a more private stay. Both have beautiful ocean views, private verandahs and elegant interiors. The four suites additionally have private plunge pools. The Hill House is a great option for families, situated above the main camp with panoramic sea views. This two bedroom suite is connected by shared living areas and an outdoor terrace.

A haven of relaxation at a surprisingly low price, Ras Katuni is our ultimate choice for a barefoot beach experience.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
