Bahari Pori Bandas
Situated a few miles away from Pangani, Bahari Pori Bandas has its own secluded beach, which is protected by a mangrove forest. Here you can totally relax, take a walk, swim in absolute peace and discover an extraordinary world: a multitude of different species of birds, crabs, amphibians, fish and lush vegetation.
Bahari Pori Bandas project was born from the idea of two Italian businessmen who founded Maqroll Tanzania Ltd in 2005. The original idea was to build a holiday complex far away from the standards of mass tourism: an ecological accommodation facility based on the respect for nature.
Locally available raw materials like stone, wood, coconut palms and straw were used in building the resort in total respect for local people's culture and traditions. Nowadays Bahari Pori Bandas water and electricity are produced by photovoltaic panels that fulfil the needs of the resort. Trying to find solutions and initiatives to respect the surrounding environment and to preserve its beauty is still the main prerogative.
The resort was officially opened in December 2010.
The current directors of Maqroll Tanzania Ltd are Sergio Sperandeo and Nino Tragni. Sergio is actually living in Pisa, Italy, where he manages his restaurant 'Ristoro Re di Puglia'. Nino lives and works in Dodoma . He used to manage KISEDET , a non governmental organization (NGO) that takes care of orphans and needy children. Today KIDESET is carried out by Nino's wife, Mrs. Giovanna. Maqroll Tanzania Ltd also manages the Italian pizzeria 'Leone l'Africano' since 2009 in the city of Dodoma.
Bahari Pori Bandas is the ideal beach destination for active holiday lovers: hiking, diving, snorkelling, fishing and bird watching. Here you can experience unique emotions, observing nature and taking beautiful natural pictures, going fishing on the dhows - the typical Tanzanian boats, hiking into the nearby Maziwa Island or reaching Pemba Island , visiting the fishing village of Kigombe or just drinking coconut milk along the Pangani river banks.
