ABOUT RAS KIROKO

RasKiroko, "The Bean", Self catering beach villa, South Coast Dar es Salaam

We are strategically located to accommodate your total privacy, Ras Kiroko The Bean is a private owned beach where you, your family, friends and colleagues can enjoy total privacy. With tight security from a well trained team of Masai all you need is just to walk around without any fear and enjoy the true nature. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), private wedding, and retreats.

Set on a rocky headland 40 meters above the sea with one small private beach on the north side and a kilometre long beach on the south side. Thick indigenous forest, huge orchard with established trees, well laid out gardens with sweeping manicured lawns.

Main house is enormous (450 square meters) with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, office and massive open kitchen, dining, lounge area and adjoining TV room. Large verandas, roof top tower to watch sunsets, huge sun deck out over cliff giving 200 degree views of the coast. Small rocky islet directly in front of house where fish eagles perch daily. Large fibreglass swimming pool and barbeque area off to the one side of the house and a 500 year old baobab tree on the opposite side of the house. Tall borassas palms and doum palms are everywhere.

Next door to the main house, but out of sight and hearing, is “The Bean”. This is a bean shaped house (185 square meters) with 3 bedrooms all en-suite, huge open kitchen/dining/lounging areas. Large veranda set on the edge of the cliff with panoramic views of the ocean. This house is let out to weekenders and is booked out virtually every weekend.

Ask us if any turtles are ready to hatch as the Green Turtle regularly lay their eggs on the beaches in this area. Humpback whales travel close inshore between the months of May to October. Bring your binoculars bird watches as you are virtually guaranteed to see fish eagles and palmnut vultures fly right past your nose. Many other birds inhabit the local bush-lands.

Full moons are a special treat as the moon rises directly in front of The Bean. New moon is just as amazing as all the stars are very clear with no lights nearby to take away their brilliance. On request outdoor mattresses are provided to lay on and look up to the heavens

Foot paths are maintained through the thick indigenous bush for those who enjoy nature walks. Wildlife abounds and you will definitely meet the troop of Sykes monkeys who live very close by. One kilometre away is another large plot of land that also belongs to Ras Kiroko with a magnificent walk through a forested river valley. There is even a troop of black and white colobus monkeys. You are welcome to bring mountain bikes as the area is perfect for this sport.

With the sunrise/sunset (blue red), vegetation (ever green), sky and ocean (blue) Ras Kiroko is the best place for creativity, re-strategizing and reenergizing! Apparently a brief glimpse of green can improve your creative performance! Seeing red or blue can have different effects on our cognitive performance: red helps us with detail-oriented tasks where we need to focus, whereas blue enhances creative performance.
