Activities

The main emphasis at Ras Kutani is pure relaxation; after an adventurous safari circuit, kick back and ease into the barefoot luxury of our beach retreat, but various activities are offered to compliment our unique location.

Relaxation

To completely unwind, either laze on the sunloungers by the cool waters of the swimming pool or let our beach attendants erect a beautiful sunshade on the beach, specially located for your privacy and that all important afternoon nap.  Unlike other Tanzanian resorts our beaches are deserted and perfect for long, meandering walks in the cool of the day.

From the comfort of your terrace hammock let your eyes sweep across the ocean because between the months of July to October guests may have the chance to witness the awe inspiring humpback whales which migrate past Ras Kutani.

Spa

For complete luxury let our onsite beauty therapist massage your cares away or treat yourself to a manicure. The treatments are booked and paid for on site.

Snorkel

Use our complimentary snorkelling equipment to explore the shipwreck of The Chyko, a cargo vessel built in the 1900s, which lies just off shore.  Although our coast is not a marine park, the waters do offer a snapshot of the beautiful Indian Ocean, with strikingly coloured fish and intricate corals.

Beach activities

Kayaks and boogie boards are available for guests seeking more physical exercise.  Our calm fresh water lagoon is the perfect place to paddle and delve further into the riverine forest while families can have fun in the surf with the boards or even try their hand at beach volleyball or boules / petanque.

Forest walks

Perfect for a morning amble, guests can discover the coastal forest behind the camp, which boasts over 132 different species of trees, a colourful array of gossamer-winged butterflies and delight in the antics of four species of monkey, including the spectacular black-and-white colobus.

Turtle hatching

Seasonally each year green turtles return to the sheltered beaches of Ras Kutani to nest, which offers guests the opportunity to behold in wonder as baby turtles hatch and make their first journey towards the ocean.  This activity is organised in conjunction with Sea Sense, a Non Government Organisation (NGO) that works closely with coastal communities in Tanzania to conserve and protect endangered marine species.  This humbling and charming experience is not to be missed.
