This place is unique, surrounded by banana plantations and in the middle of the local community. It is run by the Theresian Sisters, a group of very sweet nuns. It is a lovely place to relax. It has a common living room where it is nice to read, listen to music or enjoy the beautiful view on the veranda of the banana plantation.

Sister Johannes will prepare traditional Tanzanian food and will eat with you if you wish. The rooms are basic with twin beds and a hot shower.

You also have the opportunity to experience village activities like teaching primary school students English, playing with them or even volunteer at Mugana hospital. The area also offers beautiful walking opportunities.
