A great place to wind down from our usual hectic, connected lives. Not too far from Tanga town either. Caring management & staff, very good food and a beautiful restaurant building, and of course a sea lover's gem. The mechanic happily helped to reconnect a loose mud flap on my car, with a smile. Tip: For those staying in a...

Peponi was a place where my team and I could really refresh from our work. The workers are friendly and readily available for any questions. The food is fresh and delicious. We stayed in the Bandas and LOVED them! It was such a treat to be at a resort right next to the ocean but still get to see everyday...

Camped for 5 nights with my two small children at the beginning of the rainy season. The thatched roofs over each tent site came in handy. Each spot also has an electrical outlet (that can be switched on at a small daily fee). The overall ambiance of the place is spot on for that laid back backpacker beach feel. I...

So far, for me this place is one of the only places in the world to rival the kitesurfing in the west of Ireland. The isolated empty beaches and diversity of kitesurfing locations and options here is amazing. The wind is steady and the beaches are incredible. the guys at the Beach resort are great. Friendly atmosphere and we had...

Stayed here on two separate occasions during my trip in Tanzania, found it difficult to leave each time. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff are charming and friendly, giving impromptu swahili lessons over breakfast in the morning. The Bandas are clean and comfortable, with fans and new nets over the beds. The pool is a big bonus....

I had an amazing week in this very special part of the world!

Had an amazing time staying in Peponi. So chilled out and great vibes. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Big group of us came over and while sometimes food took a while to come (as in anywhere in Africa) it was always well worth the wait. Loads of activities to do and was great fun exploring the surrounding area. Can't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Peponi, we feel that the space and its energy will speak for itself, offering a dazzling experience without much need to look beyond what Nature has generously provided. Accommodation options include eight en-suite bandas ranging in size to accommodate individuals, couples, families and larger groups as well as permanent safari tents and camping. Tents can also be hired at Peponi. Also available and accommodating up to three people is the age-old caravan, which has been updated since serving as the first form of housing at Peponi in the 80's! The kitchen serves up delicious and mouth-watering dishes. Seafood caught by local fishermen at Kigombe, meat and vegetarian dishes for all tastes as well as pizzas and snacks at the beach bar. Grab a seat at the beach bar or stay up top; sit, relax and take in the staggering sites! The dhow-in-residence, 'Pepi' which is captained by Mwashonde, visits the Sand Island daily, an exquisite site emerging only during low tide! Jump off the dhow for some snorkeling within the Marine Park just before reaching the island and enjoying a picnic lunch! Kayaks are available for rent from the camp for those keen to explore the surrounding area. It is also possible to organize fishing trips around the famous fishing area within the Pemba Channel. Snorkeling equipment is also available to hire to visit the coral gardens near shore. Local trips may include visits around the local salt farm, Coelacanth Research Centre, Amboni Caves, Tongoni Ruins, the nearby mangroves as well as Tanga and Pangani. It is also possible to arrange a boat trip down Pangani River. Amani Nature Reserve is a great day trip from the camp. Local boats travel daily to Zanzibar for those keen to make the journey by sea! For an independent adventure, it is also possible to rent bicycles or piki-piki's and design your own route around the area! ... more   less
