About The Tides Lodge

The Tides Lodge is an intimate and unpretentious place with only seven Beach Cottages and two Family Houses set on a picture postcard, palm-fringed bay that is one of the finest beaches in East Africa. The lodge has a reputation for fine cuisine and specializes in seafood. The cottages are very spacious, with large billowing mosquito nets over a huge bed overlooking the Indian Ocean. All cottages have a private verandah and sunbathing area with a parasol, and are kept cool by the near constant sea breeze.

The bar and restaurant overlooks the ocean and has an intimate and cosy feel to it. A wide range of wines and drinks are available as well as daily cocktails and fresh "madafu" - a chilled coconut drink. Lunch is served informally in the bar with a choice of four dishes that change daily, all made to order from the freshest ingredients sourced locally. This usually comprises fresh fish and seafood. Dinner is more formal, with three courses, and is served in the main restaurant. The tide never goes out so far that you cannot swim in the sea, and for those guests who prefer not to swim in the sea, there is also a lovely pool.

Activities include snorkelling on Maziwe Island Marine Park, fishing, beach walks, kayaking and bike hire and tours. Cultural tours of the historic Pangani are also offered.

Safari: It is possible to go on safari to Saadani National Park which is just a short distance from the lodge. The park has Lions, Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and many other animals.

Beach: Situated on one of the finest beaches in East Africa.

Family friendly: The Lodge welcomes families and has a very safe beach with for children to enjoy. Swimming in the sea is safe and we have a great pool too.
