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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
