Tamodi Guest Lodge And Stables

The beautiful Tamodi Guest Lodge and Stables were created by Lynne and Owen Johnston out of their passion for horses and the magnificent valleys of the Crags. This love has transcended into a truly luxurious bed and breakfast in Plettenberg Bay, perfect for a quiet and tranquil holiday focusing on the outdoors.

The lodge overlooks a magnificent indigenous forest and valley, as well as the astoundingly beautiful Outeniqua Mountains – aiding to the tranquil atmosphere which surrounds this enchanting and carefully designed Plettenberg Bay accommodation establishment.

The architecture of the house is one of its most enchanting aspects, enabling guests to feel at home straight away. The spacious lounges and two massive fireplaces make this Plettenberg Bay holiday accommodation warm and comforting during the winter months, while the combination of the library and swimming pool create the perfect recipe for relaxation during summer. Regardless of the season you choose to visit, you'll find Tamodi Lodge to be a true paradise.

The property forms part of a natural conservancy area and is also a working equestrian farm with its own riding school. There are many local bird species in our surrounded trees and the forest, making the area perfect for bird watching or for simply listening to their calls while relaxing.

Guests can choose to stay in one of our two beautiful standard rooms or in our luxurious honeymoon suite. Each have been decorated with your utmost comfort in mind and have an attention to detail that will pamper and aid you in unwinding.

Tembo Hotel In Stone Town Zanzibar

Tembo House Hotel & Apartments is situated at the heart of Zanzibar Stone Town by the picturesque seafront. The magnificent main building has had various functions over the past few centuries. Between 1834 and 1884 it served as the American Consulate in Zanzibar then passed on to become the trading offices of Cowasjee Dinshaw & Partners.

Their headquarters was in Aden (what now is known as the Port of Suez), and with trading posts notably in most of the British Protectorate areas, it became the largest trading company in the Indian Ocean.
To this day, the name of Cowasjee Dinwash & Partners is still visible at the main entrance of Tembo House Hotel & Apartments.
Tembo House Hotel has seen a few celebrities pass through its doors during the consulate era, the Conwasjee Dinwasee era and as a hotel. Mahatma Ghandi, stayed here a few weeks with the Dinwash family on his journey back to India from South Africa 1914.
As a rising new star in the British, and the world music scene, Freddie Mercury and his family used to retreat to what is now “Marashi” apartment whenever they came back to Zanzibar on holidays.
Next to Tembo House Hotel is also what used to be the British Consulate, where in 1874, Dr. Livingstone’s body was brought before embarking on its long journey back to England.
A stone throw away is the Beit-al-Ajaib, or House of Wonders. This landmark building, is the largest and by far, the tallest building in Stone Town. Flanking the Beit-al-Ajaib is the Old Fort on one side and the Palace Museum on the other.
In other words, Tembo House Hotel is situated on a prime location; you need not go far to find the shops, the restaurants and the historical sites that Zanzibar Stone town has on offer.
Zanzibar Port is just a 5 minutes drive away and the Zanzibar International Airport a further 20 minutes away. For animal lovers there is the Jozani Forest where more than 2 thousand Red Colobus monkeys live.  There are also Sykes monkeys in this jungle, and there is a nearby Butterfly Park and Tortoise Sanctuary.
