We had an unusual find on Sange Beach, as we found not one, but 2 chambered nautilus shells, over the past 18 months. Unusual enough that when asked, the local fishermen, had no idea on what they were and had never seen one before. This caused quite a stir among the local fisherman, as to what this strange shell was, and intrigue for us, so we looked for more information about them....

We had an unusual surprise one morning, right in front of Kigongo Bay Resort, a flock of greater flamingos, floating on the calm surface of the ocean. A quick rub of the eyes and yes, they were still there. Around 40 of these large bright pink birds were forming a raft in the bay.
As you walk around the gardens at Kijongo Bay Resort, you may be fortunate enough to see some strange nests amongst the leaves, these nests are made by weaver ants. We were quite intrigued by these nests, and so did some research and found them to be very interesting, and thought we would share this info with you.
Beachcombing in front of Kijongo Bay Resort, you never know what you might find. We came across quite a few brightly coloured starfish, and wanted to know more about these strange creatures, which we thought we would share with you.
Did you know that sunbirds are omnivorous? A sunbirds' diet is made up primarily of nectar, around 95%. They will, however, sometimes eat fruit and arthropods (insects and spiders). Sunbirds need to feed almost continually during the day to meet their high metabolic needs..
Pollen is how plants reproduce, as pollinators move from flower to flower, they deposit the collected pollen from flower to flower, basically allowing the plants to mate.
Peace & Tranquility with Great Service
(Translated by Google) We stayed at this amazing place for a week. If you are looking for silence combined with great service and lovingly furnished houses, you have come to the right place. The beach is gorgeous, like Robinson Crusoe on his deserted island. The variety of butterflies and birds is also worth a visit. The lucky ones will be woken up at night by the bush babies. You...

Wunderschöner, ruhiger Ort mitten in einem Garten Eden
Wir haben gleich zu Beginn unserer 6-wöchigen Tanzaniareise das KijongoBay ausgewählt, um anzukommen und den Alltags-Stress aus Europa hinter uns zu lassen. Und der Ort ist perfekt dafür; kilometerlanger Sandstrand ohne lästige Verkäufer oder Beachboys, die Dachterrasse mit Tagesbett, Aussicht aufs Meer und einer kühlen Meeresbrise, und nicht zuletzt das wundervolle Personal, dass sich ums Wohl der Gäste sorgt und die wunderschöne Gartenanlage pflegt.Täglich kommen Vögel, Affen und kleine...

Wonderful family holiday!
We have just returned from the most wonderful week at Kijongo Bay. Our 3 children (3, 7 and 10) had the best time. The beach was fantastic and very safe to swim in and then we had the added bonus of having a pool too! The food was great and if there were things the kids struggled with, we simply asked for a variation which was no problem. All... Read More
Perfect family holiday
We spent a week with friends at Kijongo Bay Resort. It was such an amazing holiday. The kids tell it better than we could. “The staff were all super friendly and welcoming and I really got to know each of them. The beach was beautiful and so interesting. One of my favourite activities was the beach walk when Karl told us lots of information about the sea creatures that... Read More

Our family of five visited Kijongo Bay Beach Resort in August 2021. We have been trying to return for several months and will be visiting again soon. It is AWESOME in the true sense of the word, not the overused phrase of today. The location is spectacular with all villas and the communal dining and pool area all facing the ocean. We arrived at lunchtime, planning to stay two... Read More

Wer Ruhe und Geborgenheit möchte ist hier genau richtig
Nach unserer zweiwöchigen Selbstfahrer Reise, mit vielen wechselnden Unterkünften haben wir hier 6 wundervolle Nächte verbracht. Wir wurden herzlich von Carl und Sally mit ihrem Team begrüßt, da wir etwas spät dran waren hatten Sie sich gesorgt ob wir vor Dunkelheit noch ankommen und uns dann per Telefon versucht zu erreichen. Es war so schön wie Sally sich um uns gesorgt hatte und sich richtig freute dass wir gut... Read More

Lovely spot on the beach with palms and white sand. Privacy and high quality. Clean rooms and nice Swahili style architecture. Delicious meals. Kind staff and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended!!

Jag spenderade blott två dagar på Kijongo Bay men hade en riktig toppentid. Som en ännu oupptäckt pärla ligger det precis vid stranden, har en toppenpersonal och är det miljömässigt mest genomtänkta ställe jag besökt. En lugn resort med intim känsla som jag skulle rekommendera främst för par som vill ha en lugn, romantisk resa och/eller familjer som vill ha en lugn, lite lyxigare upplevelse med möjlighet till aktiviteter....

Wat een prachtige plek! Vooral de lieve Michelle en Jiri maken een verblijf op deze plek een prachtige ervaring. Tijdens onze rondreis konden wijnhelaas maar 1 nacht blijven. Maar de herinnering aan het slapen onder de sterren, de persoonlijke aandacht, de mooie gesprekken met Jiri en Michelle tijdens zonsondergang onder een eeuwenoude Baobab en niet te vergeten een verrukkelijk diner gedekt op een tafel op het strand, het zand...

Just returned from a second trip to Kijongo Bay and again we had the place to ourselves! It is a 40 minute trip from the airstrip but as my father said" I never thought I'd visit a place like this in my lifetime!" The beach is long, clean and deserted. The staff are exceptional and the villas are exquisite. In addition the food is delicious. If go to Zanzibar... Read More
