Beho Beho & Ras Kutani - the best

Tanzania between 10 Feb 2011 and 22 Feb 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"The two lodges we stayed in were just what we wanted from a Safari & beach holiday.

Beho was far beyond our expectations - remote location - great game viewing & lovely rooms, comfort & hospitality - true perfection.

Ras K was ideal for relaxing at the beach - laid-back, rustic but 5 star comfort."

"Beho Beho - perfection in the bush"

5 nights Arrived 11 Feb 2011
"A truly magical place - views from bandas amazing & really enjoyed the "open" aspect of the verandah & shower. Bandas are very well designed & equipped with everything you need & offer extreme comfort. The location of the lodge on the hillside allowed the breeze to cool the rooms & loved being able to enjoy the views & hear the animals close by. Hospitality from Management & staff was outstanding & within no time it felt like a friendly house-party atmosphere.

Loved the flexibility of the game drives & having "bush breakfast" allowed us to be out in the mornings for 5 hours. Ian, Onesmo & Salum were excellent hosts & their individual personalities added greatly to our enjoyment of our safari. Our game drives were exciting & really enjoyed the day at the Lake with the "surprise" bush breakfast.

The food at Beho was outstanding & really enjoyed having lunch & dinner in a different location each day - it was a nice surprise each evening - especially our last night having dinner out in the bush alongside the International Airport!

We were delayed leaving Beho due to Dar airport being closed after the bombing - but life at Beho carried on as normal - Onesmo took us on another game drive where we found the dogs !! & lunch was provided before our plane arrived later that afternoon. Beho is a very special place - we were very lucky to be the only guests - 4 - on our 1st night & only 6 people for our whole stay which made the experience even more special & added greatly to the wonderful atmosphere.

Beho is doing everything right & we cant wait to return again in the future - BEHO should stand for Best at Everything - Hospitality Outstanding !"

"Beho Beho fly-camping review"

1 night Arrived 16 Feb 2011
"Walking to bush camp was exciting & arriving to see the camp fire & a beautiful dinner table set in the middle of the bush amazing. The tent was beautifully decorated & lit with candle lamps & provided every comfort - the en-suite bathroom was very well equipped. Our chef & waiters provided an excellent meal served in the usual Beho style & it was a magical evening dining under the stars around the campfire.

Onesmo was great company & we were confident we were in safe hands. Although we had a spider & millepede in our tent on arrival we were confident that when the tent was closed up for the night it would be thoroughly checked. We were in camp on Valentines night - a special touch was the "heart" shaped bread rolls.

Although the tents were extremely hot during the night it was a great experience. After our morning walk a great breakfast was provided. Every thought has gone into making this experience a special one - giving guests the opportunity of sleeping in the bush but without losing any of the wonderful Beho Beho touches."

"Ras Kutani review"

5 nights Arrived 17 Feb 2011
"Loved the laid-back atmosphere here - no shoes required - truly a place where you can relax after a hectic safari. The "open" style rooms were huge & extremely comfortable & loved the verandah & hammocks. Although the style of the rooms are "rustic" & open they are spotlessly clean & allowed the breezes to keep the rooms cool. The bathroom area was very well equipped & hot water continuously available.

I have given the rooms a "good" rating rather than excellent only because they need to provide a power socket near a mirror - the bathroom had 3 huge mirrors - 2 over the basins & 1 between the storage shelves - but the only power points were in the bedroom area. The mirror area between the storage shelves could easily be changed to a dressing table with power socket. Power was provided to the sockets between 10.0 & 12.0 & 5.0-10pm only - this was not really a problem but felt that the morning power time would have been more useful earlier when we were in the room - as it was not safe to leave cameras & phones on charge when we were not in the room.

Apart from this we loved the style of the room & enjoyed the breezes & sound of the sea. The vegetation between the rooms & the beach was quite high which blocked the view - this may have been for security reasons though. The rustic beach beds are much more comfortable than they look.

The food was very good & a reasonable choice provided & liked the way they moved the tables to different places on the verandah each night. Manager Mark was extremely friendly & helpful & he & his staff created a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Enjoyed the walk to the local village & school - to see the "real" Africa & we were lucky to see a turtle release whilst we were there.
Ras K is a great place to relax & enjoy a laid-back casual beach break."
