The property is situated south of the ferry
at Kigamboni and set between existing hotels. The southern neighbour
is set in 500 acres of pristine bush and grass lands with an airstrip
which can be arranged to be used. A new lodge is opening up on this
property but it is almost two kilometres away behind a large headland.
The northern neighbour has 150 acres of thick pristine bush with
a well establish small hotel which is two kilometres away and out
of sight. The next neighbour north is a small exclusive hotel also
with an airstrip. Almost 4 kilometres of coast is taken up by 4
hotel plots all with common boundaries making this the most desirable
location along the whole coast.
The area abounds with wildlife: occasional
passing lions and hippo but a constant population of bush pigs,
waterbuck, bushbuck, duiker, dik dik, leopard, land tortoises, baboons,
vervet monkeys, sykes monkeys, black and white colobus monkeys,
genet, civet, resident buffalos (6 plus calf), pangolin etc. Fish
eagles and palm nut vultures nest in this area while western snake
eagles, hornbills, and many more bird species are present.
The beaches are a vital turtle nesting area covered by the Sea Sense
program and every year thousands of green turtle eggs hatch in this
area. From June thru to October hump back whales migrate along the
coast and are often seen offshore. Three kilometres directly offshore
is a huge coral reef coming to within 2 meters of the surface. 26
miles directly offshore is Tanzania’s best big game-fishing
grounds called Latham Island. This is the closest part of the mainland
to this island.
The car-ferry at Kigamboni
can be a challenge but fortunately a huge new ferry will be commissioned
in September 2008, the road around (Kilwa Road) is being widened
into a dual carriageway and there are currently two proposals to
build a bridge across the upper reaches of the harbour. The bridge
will cause property prices to escalate enormously.
