Our first visit to this gem... definitely would be back and would make sure to use all the attractions available. Love the setting. Enjoyed the food and great hospitality. Beautiful surroundings. Lots to see in the area.
This was our first time to Mbotyi and as long as your expectations are in line you will have a fabulous, relaxing experience. If you are looking for luxury then this is not the place for you. If you want a chilled resort, with good...More
We had a wonderful three nights in this hotel. The grounds are well kept, the pool refreshing and the beach beautiful.
We braved the 28km hike to waterfall bluff which was tough but worth it. Unfortunately there was some confusion around the cost, the reception...More
Lovely campsite with clean ablutions. Far from the beach (no seaview). The people at Mbotyi River Lodge were very unhelpful and NOT accomodating towards the campers at all. We were not allowed to use any of the lodge's facilities (not even the use of the...More

Hi Jennie. I personally travel from Ifafa to Mbotyi regularly and have not had any problems on the way. The route that most of our guests have taken is Port Edward, Bizana (Bypass), Magusheni (Yaka Garage), Flagstaff, Lusikisiki then Mbotyi. I normally either fill at Yaka Garage Magusheni or Lusikiski without problems. The times really depends on what time you leave as I generally travel at 4am in the morning then it only takes 4 to 4.5 hours as you tend to miss the hustle and bustle in towns. Please feel free to call and speak to any onme of us at the lodge if you are needing any furher information
