A butterfly has a four stage life cycle, a process called metamorphosis. Metamorphosis is a Greek word that basically translates to transformation or total change in shape. Butterflies, moths, flies, bees, and beetles all undergo a similar complete metamorphosis.

When visiting Kijongo Bay Beach Resort, one of the things our guests often comment on, is our incredible dawn chorus. Having well established gardens, with most of our bushes and trees being indigenous, we attract a lot of birds to Kijongo. This dawn chorus can range between subtle to loud, starting just before sunrise, to around a half hour after the sun rises. Bird song is a thing of beauty from the...
With the different seasons bringing different flowers and fruit, the birds in Kijongo's gardens are forever changing. Not only do we have our seasonal visitors, we also have our resident population of birds. The morning wake up call is special at Kijongo, with a cacophony of bird song, not a lot can beat that morning coffee accompanied by natures alarm clock. At the moment we will only post birds we are able...
Bee-eaters are a vibrant species of bird that are found in a wide variety of terrains in Africa, Asia, Australia, New Guinea, and Southern Europe. They are a very colourful bird with slender bodies, long wings and often have long central tail feathers. The different types of bee-eaters found at Kijongo Bay Resort, are beautiful to observe, as they swoop across the pool, hawk from the bushes or are seen performing their...
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
Great, intimate place on the planet.
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!!
Wonderful place to stay
I went there with my family for four nights on full boarding. We also had a one day safari drive to Saadani National Park. The place is very welcoming and very close to the beach. It is an excellent place to relax for family. The managers and the whole team made sure that we have everything we needed. The food was unbelievable. In short, I would recommend the hotel...

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.
