Lazy Lagoon is run by the Foxes family who have quite a few camps in Tanzania and they run them very well. It’s a great company and the good ethics are clearly present at Lazy Lagoon. Being just south of Bagamoyo it makes for easy access from Dar by road and offers great value for money. But for just a bit more money you can get yourself the amazingly world class Ras Kutani beach lodge; one of the of the best beach lodges on that whole coastline.
Lazy Lagoon - The Facts
Lazy Lagoon island is located 70 km north of Dar es Salaam
and just south of Bagamoyo.
There are 12 beach bandas, all quite large and very airy covered by a giant Makuti roof, only yards from the beach. The main area is situated just back from the beach front and also covered with a large makuti, A-framed roof. The view from the rooms and main area favour a typical sunrise over Zanzibar whilst the fishing boats pass to go out to sea and sunset over the palm trees of Bagamoyo
. The perfect end to a Tanzania Family Holiday
or a Tanzania Honeymoon
The rooms have en suite bathrooms, outdoor hammocks, large beds and the well sized veranda’s allow for a private and scenic view of the Indian Ocean. The Lounge, bar, dining area is at tip of the island with views east and west. Swimming pool 240V electricity is provided by generator for lighting and recharging of batteries.
