If you turn back time, to around 110 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, turtles had already begun to evolve. And, since evolving, so long ago, turtles haven't changed much.
Welcome to tranquility; coconut palms, the gentle lap of waves off the Indian Ocean, the silent stream of dhows travelling routes as ancient as the tide. Kijongo Bay Beach Resort is the place you come to when you need to revive, recharge and simply relax. Enjoy the natural charm and hospitality of the Swahili people. Indulge in the prepared and freshly caught seafood and let time slip away.
Located at Sange Beach near Saadani National Park, we offer the unique opportunity to enjoy much of what Tanzania has to offer all from one spot
Go on a water safari and discover the amazing diversity of the underwater life while snorkeling or scuba diving around the beautiful reef of Maziwe Island.
At Kijongo Bay, we are lovers of anything coconut, so we thought we would let you in on our secret on how we make our creamy coconut milk, which is served daily at breakfast. Being situated right on the beach, surrounded by coconut palms, access to fresh coconuts doesn't pose a problem here at Kijongo Bay. Coconut milk's rich and creamy taste, with its hint of sweetness and tropical flavour, goes really...
In Tanzania, Green Turtles, (Chelonia mydas), during the months of April to July, often appear on Sange Beach, home to Kijongo Bay Resort, to lay their eggs. This year, Kijongo Bay Resort, with the assistance of Sea Sense, have again become custodians for several Green Turtle nests. Sange Beach, Pangani, is one of only a handful of beaches on the Tanzanian mainland where Green Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.
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

This is a great place to relax. Far off everything else you can escape the busy Western World and get new energy and inspiration by the beautiful nature around it. We as a couple highly enjoyed the beautiful sundowner set up at the salt panels and a very lovely boat ride into the mangroves with the best hosts in the world Jiri and Michelle. Very remote and unspoilt beach,... Read More

Beautiful spot in the enormous and still almost unspoilt stretch of palm orchards South of Pangani. Very friendly and knowledgeable management and staff. Nice comfortable houses, excellent food and service.

Die Anfahrt ist etwas irritierend und äußerst abenteuerlich. Sobald man durch das Eingangstor gelangt ist, wähnt man sich in einer anderen Welt. Direkt am indischen Ozean gelegen befinden sich 7 zweistöckige Villen mit großem Balkon in einem palmenreichen Grundstück. Dazu ein offener und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichteter Restaurant/Bar-Bereich und ein toller Swimmingpool. Man fühlt sich sofort heimisch und wohl. Michelle und Jiri mit ihren freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Mitarbeitern sorgen für... Read More

I describe Kinjongo Bay as part of the best holiday I have ever had. A remarkable place. Relaxing, and perfectly looked after by the staff. We love Kinjongo Bay and will return soon.

A few of us organised a weekend here and had such a wonderful time. The hosts went out of their way to make it extra special and it was! The staff were so friendly, the food was absolutely delicious ( one night they even arranged a candle-lit dinner on the beach for all of us), the rooms are comfortable and airy with lovely views over the beach and sea,...

We had the most wonderful stay at Kijongo Beach Resort. Very remote, very quiet, very authentic swahili style, like being on a paradise island. Can highly recommend Kijongo!

When I first heard about Kijongo, I looked at the pics on your website and thought it looked like a lovely place. I can confirm that the pics might show the physical nature of the place, but don't begin to describe the warmth and friendliness of the property with its wonderfully welcoming staff who never seem to stop smiling.

I recently stayed at Kijongo Bay with my daughters family (including 3 young children). The welcome was warm and friendly, the accommodation was just fabulous. Wonderful villa's with amazing views. Really comfortable beds, with the chance to sleep on the roof (terrace) at night. The rooms were clean and fresh. The food was so good - fresh and beautifully served. The staff too were so good, and welcoming and... Read More
