mapMikindani, near Mtwara

Mikindani lies in the very south of Tanzania, about a one hour drive from the Mozambique border. The area is still very much ‘off the beaten track’ and wonderfully undeveloped, showing Tanzania at its unspoilt best.

Getting Here

Guests are advised to travel to Dar es Salaam and then to drive or fly down to Mikindani. Dar es Salaam is served by KLM, Qatar, Emirates, Swiss, Kenyan and Ethiopian Airlines.
