Kisampa Bush Retreat

Kisampa Bush Retreat is situated to the northeast of Dar Es Salaam, on a hilltop offering views of the plains beneath. This private sanctuary adjoins the coastal park of Saadani in eastern Tanzania, and is a mixture of private community and conservation sanctuary. It can be reached by light aircraft to the Matipwilli airstrip or by road from Dar es Salaam.

Kisampa Bush Retreat is an eco-friendly lodge, whilst simplistic, it is also very comfortable. There are just 6 thatched bungalows, each furnished with a hand crafted bed and double hammock with views of the surrounding plains. A private open air bathroom with a bush shower hanging from a tree branch completes this unique room. Hot water is delivered at your request – you just need to ask!

Families are encouraged here and can be accommodated with their parents or nearby in separate ‘star gazer’ tents.

There is a communal bungalow with a well stocked reference library and relaxing sofas for guests use.

Breakfast and lunch are served in the open air pavilion or taken as picnics on a longer game drive. Evening meals begin with a drink around the open fire, before eating under the stars – weather permitting! Food such as locally produced honey, freshly baked bread and salads are widely used and seafood from the nearby ocean makes a regular appearance. Vegetarian diets are also catered for.

Kisampa supports the local community wherever possible, with fundraising for local schools and medical facilities.

Your safari experience at Kisampa Bush Retreat will be intimate and personal – as it’s a conservation sanctuary you won’t see another safari vehicle in the area.
