Our view: Situated far from the madding crowds and set on its own crescent of white sandy beach to the south of Dar es Salaam, Ras Kutani enjoys a delightfully secluded position flanked by a fresh water lagoon abutting onto a coastal forest, which spills to the edge of the unspoilt and undeveloped beach. Surrounded by lush tropical forest with resident colobus and other monkeys, the lodge offers a sublime blend of rustic ethnicity and a close attention to detail, resulting in the perfect hideaway for some lazy days in a hammock.
