The owners could not be more kind and welcoming and the beach is absolutely beautiful! I am planning another visit! I ate some of the pizza I have ever had at Capricorn, and not just by Tanzanian standards. If you want a homier, more personal vacation on the East African coast, be sure to check it out!

We actually stayed next door but, we will be staying here next time. We were invited by the owner for some pizza and left with way much more. Thank you very much and definitely try the green salsa! The owners are hands on with everything the service was excellent. We will be telling others about this place.

The second time I stayed at Capricorn Cottages. Plan to return next year. Why? Location, service, food, lodge, close to the beach and village, friendly people. We bought fabrics and a tailored clothes in the shop. We also had the opportunity to get a cooking lesson in Indian food with a combination with local vegetables. Looking forward to a new... More

My friend and I recently stayed next door to Capricorn beach cottages at Peponi. What a difference in welcoming! The staff greeted us warmly and made it a perfect afternoon by ensuring our drinks were filled, our music was played and our food was tasty. The staff were exceptional. I would definitely recommend staying here

My family and I stopped over at Capricorn on our way out of Pangani and what a wonderful place it was. Beautifully decorated and with a glorious view of the coast it's no wonder why this place feels like paradise! We indulged in fresh prawns and fish curry, expertly cooked by the friendly staff. Would highly recommend their Baobab juice... More

Beautiful, beautiful location - the cottages are right on the Indian Ocean. From the cottages you can hear the waves breaking on the beach. Walk a few meters and you're on the beach -- great for dipping, swimming, and long, coastal walks. The cottages are stylish Swahili style, with a high thatched roof; inside is spacious. We loved the four... More

Me and my boyfriend (also vegan) stayed at one of the camp sites next door, for 2 nights, because there were no available spaces at Capricorn. But we were still greeted by the staff at Capricorn with what I can only describe as the best service I have experienced, in my 3 months in Tanzania. Really kind, friendly, helpful, staff!... More

We stayed here for two wonderful nights. The cottage we stayed in was just a few meters from the most gorgeous beach with great swimming as the tide came in mid afternoon or early in the morning. Our cottage was very comfortable with good nets and lovely beds. There is a well equipped kitchen area if you want to cook... More

The best place to go for a half day trip from Tanga. Best Pizza and Cappuccino's around. The rooms are clean, service good and a great walk on the beach, watching the local fishermen bring in their catch of the day.
