Karibu (Welcome) to SandRocks Lodge

SandRocks Lodge is a beautiful, warm and friendly, African and English family run, eco-friendly lodge.  Just to Relax and Unwind!

What we offer:

SandRocks Lodge offers excellent value and for low budgets: African Wooden Bandas, stylish En Suite Stone Rooms and Camping.  Our hotel is located in a wonderful countryside area, hidden away, behind the village of Kichangani, Kigamboni, the quiet, rural district of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.  A  wonderful unique Boat Styled Restaurant and Lounge bar with relaxing sofas.  Elevated for beautiful views and the wonderful, refreshing ocean breeze.  Serving highly acclaimed "Fusion Food" taken from around the world in mouthwatering tasty dishes for all appetites.  Licensed bar, tea, coffee and soft drinks. 

Exciting:

SandRocks Lodge has a unique design and is thoughtfully styled, African and Mediterranean theme that runs throughout the Lodge.  Set in 2 acres, with swaying coconut trees within the countryside and on the door step of the Indian Ocean.  The 4km of sandy beach nearby, the longest and most beautiful in the area, is fringed with natural coastal forest.  Visits from turtles on the beach and flocks of migrating birds to the lodge, completes the picture for a peaceful African Paradise.

Versatile:

For International Vacation Rentals and Weekend Getaways from Dar es Salaam City, Airport Stop Overs, Safari breaks,  or make it your "Hub" for your wider African Travels.  SandRocks Lodge is a perfect Event Venue for your party celebrations, business meetings and seminars, Yoga, Music and Arts Festivals etc.

ECO Friendly, SandRocks Lodge:

Using local produce, materials ,local traders and labour to reduce our carbon footprint. Our hotel uses solar energy for power and to pump water from our clean, fresh water well.  We advise our guests to conserve the electricity and water in the lodge so that we can reduce drastically, our need to use a generator as back up.  If our guests observe our advice then we can always rely on our solar power. 

As we are ECO friendly, we do not agree with air-conditioning due to the environmental damage and the ambience of our wonderful African Lodge.  Some electric fans are  available but we also have a wonderful ocean breeze to cool the rooms down.   There is a drinks and food fridge in the restaurant but none in our rooms to keep our energy consumption down.  We hope you agree with our philosophy.  SandRocks Lodge is always looking for better ways to be more ECO friendly.
