Kilwa Seaview Resort

Listed under Best Hotels in Tanzania.

Pin It

Tanzania being that much further from South Africa and lacking that influence, is more third worldly than the places we visited in Mozambique. Kilwa has a nice big air strip, but no real tourism to go with it. We stayed in a locally run lodge called the Kilwa Seaview Resort which had very pleasant and friendly staff and delicious seafood, but no maintenance appeared to have been done on the place since it was built in 2003. My wife had to spend ages sewing up all the holes in our mosquito net, and there was no hot water, but we didn’t really need it. It is a pleasant and attractive place though, worth a visit, and with impressive ruins of an Arab fortress nearby. There is also a diving lodge in Kilwa, (Kimbilio Lodge) which I have heard is known for excellent scuba diving.
