The Slow Leopard Kilwa

Lying on the edge of what was once the most influential trading port on the East African coastline; The Slow Leopard’s Mwangaza Hideaway offers the perfect gateway into the ancient region of Kilwa.The island of Kilwa Kisiwani is home to a ruined city dating back to the 8th century and was recently listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. An afternoon exploring these ruins is reason enough to visit this charming fishing village, before beginning to explore the nearby waterways, reefs and beaches.
 

The Lodge takes its name from the Swahili word for reflection and overlooks the inland waterways to the west of Kilwa Masoko. An open plan design gives the dining room-lounge-bar area a relaxed and comfortable ambience, with the pool only a few steps away. There’s no better way to finish your day than with a cold drink in hand watching the sun set across the water from the comfort of the bar.

 

 
 
Mwangaza Hideaway is the only lodge in Kilwa with an operating fleet of ocean going boats. This allows us to charter private trips to the ruins of Kisiwani, Songo Mnaro as well as private snorkelling trips for our guests. So relax and let our experienced skippers exhibit the best of what Kilwa has to offer.
