When you ask people to think of Africa, you’re not surprised to hear they imagine vast landscapes, 4x4s and the long search for big game and lions. Of course, these things are synonymous with Africa and are one of the main reasons people visit the continent. Yet, there is so much more that is missed. The people, their lives and their cultures are not always wrapped up and packaged with the animals, and it can be difficult to see how people live, the food they eat and their true cultural heritage. For travelers who wish to experience these things it can often be difficult to do so, where do you go? where can you stay? Mikindani offers this option.
Described as an ‘Oasis’ in the desert by guests on TripAdvisor; Mikindani is an unparalleled patch of Tanzania, full of rich history and culture, untouched and unspoilt. It offers travelers who are looking for something different a little slice into real life. Unburdened by Safari trucks, Mikindani provides each traveler with their own unique story entirely dependent on how they choose to spend their time. Guests can spend their time looking at historical buildings, meeting with local people, experiencing the Swahili coast and the beauty of its scenery, or simply relaxing by the pool at The Old Boma or being pampered in the spa. Regardless of what you choose to do, it is the people of Mikindani that make this place special, as they are the real beating heart of Tanzania. Incredibly welcoming and generous to guests, those who come to Mikindani are certain of one thing.
Mikindani gets under your skin.
