Who we Are
The place is owned, built and
run by a Dutch woman and two Dutch men. All three of us live at the
Lodge, ensuring constant supervision and maintenance of the Lodge's
Our concern about the environment is evident in the harmonious way the
Lodge blends into the surrounding savannah as well as the use of solar
power and local materials.
Because we live here, and our
company is small, we have to rely on the resources of the communities
around us. We take an active part in developing the local economy, the
hospital and a nearby school. Most of our staff is from the area
around the hotel and are trained by us, which also works positively
for the integration we emphasise.
For us this is not just an empty phrase you often find in tourist
brochures; apart from our ideals and compassion, we also take an
active part because of our own needs.
We underwrite the principles
of Eco-tourism, which for us also means that people take their time to
enjoy their stay, and are aware of the impact of their visit. For our
canoe trip, we hire canoes from the village you will visit. Like this
the local people see and experience the advantages of your visit.
If we emphasise this by
helping them with every new project, we create a kind of integration
and acceptance beneficial for everybody. To make the most
out of your stay, you need to spend at least two nights with us.
A canoe trip starts around 9.30 am, so you can take a leisurely
breakfast. The lake is calm then and you can see the fishermen bring
in their catch. We bicycle in the late afternoon, as it gradually
becomes cooler. Or
we take you out to spot some of the colourful birds in the
All of us are actively
involved in your stay, you can talk to us, go with us on a tour and
learn and experience more about Tanzania.
