Overview

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.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

  • The Namibia trip was fantastic!

    Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).

    As for specifics:

    OKONJIMA
    This place was the best!
    Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
    We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
    If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.

    EMANYA
    The only (slight) disappointment.
    Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.

    OKAUKEUJO
    Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
    The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.

    DORO NAWAS
    Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
    A nice stopping point on the drive.

    SPITZKOPPE
    An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
    Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
    The staff was on par with Okonjima.
    2 days were perfect.

    Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
    They represent Tourdust well!

    Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
