We had a very good experience thanks to Sandra and Frank - she really takes pride in her business and it shows as this is an excellent B&B. She was very accommodating in terms of laundry, arranging a SIM card for our phone over the weekend, our climb, and travel around Moshi. Food is excellent, as mentioned many times over...

Let me start by saying that now, after staying at Sandra's Tembotamu, I would not think of staying anywhere else in Moshi. Clichee apart, this is truly a home away from home and it's all Sandra's merit. She manages somehow to make her house your house and in no time you feel like you're a member of the family, looking...

Sandra is great and has a lovely place. Helpful with trip planning. However, need to watch out for costs that aren't fully discussed. Eg. They complete "equipment checks" before your Kili trek and will offer some rental equipment for extra charge. Most of the time I found this equipment not to be necessary. Sandra will tell you that your international...

Thanks for your review and thanks for the complements about our B&B. It was great having your group stay with us and we congratulate on your success with reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro.

We travelled from Johannesburg to Tanzania on Fastjet because it offered us the cheapest air fare for our family of four., Our first destination was always Zanzibar but when we discovered Fastjet had easy access flights to Moshi we finally learnt how possible and easy it is for South Africans to get to Kilimanjaro without been in an initial package...

My friend and I stayed a night at Tembotamu before our safari. Sandra is a great host, extremely knowledgable, and a great conversationalist. She has built up her B&B to be a sanctuary away from the bustle of Moshi. It is so easy to feel relaxed here. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and meeting other travellers all heading different...

I stayed with Sandra and Frank at TemboTamu BnB over multiple visits throughout the months of Sep-December 2015 whilst I was traipsing across East Africa and Tanzania, in between my Kilimanjaro climb, safaris and clinical placement in a nearby hospital. It can be safely said that within my first couple of days at TemboTamu I felt quite at home. Each...

I fell in love with this place. Rooms were clean and decorated with simple but lovely decor. Owners were charming and loving people. I cant wait to stay there for another night or two. We arrive late at night but were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. Breakfast was served with delight.

Nice bed and breakfast on the outskirts of Arusha. The owners were very gently all the time with us. The room we had was clean, big and confortable, and with hot water and net. The breakfast was amazing! We paied 50 dollars for a double room. No wi-fi in the room.

Great Hospitality & personal care. Sandra woke up at 2:30 AM to check us in. Good breakfast. Plenty of insights and info on local conditions and trips. Things that can improve - Shower - pressure was very low. Electricity backup - though plenty of solar powered lamps were available, central power backup which can work the fans at night would...

Tembo Tamu gets an 100% rating from me. Meals – an amazing breakfast spread every morning including tropical fruit, cereal, yogurt and usually eggs. Dinner became almost a family affair, with all of us sitting around the table together. Sandra is fantastic cook and she put a lot of thought into the wide variety of really yummy meals that we...
