When I decided to build a small, sustainable boutique lodge in Tanzania, I’m sure most of my friends and family were thinking… here she goes again…doing something we can’t relate to at all! 😂 However, I do believe they may have had confidence in me and my ability to achieve my dreams, no matter how crazy! I had already proved that when I decided that the coolest thing to do was to sail around the world…as captain of my 38 foot sailboat! 👍 (As a guest at Sakila Sunrise, feel free to ask me about my sailing adventures!)

When I arrived in Tanzania in 2010 for safari and Kilimanjaro climb, I didn’t expect it to change my life. 🤦‍♀️… I had been living with my wonderful French creole husband in la Martinique in the Caribbean for 17 years.

I only know how to follow my passion…. Tanzania and the people of Tanzania, captured my heart. (Spoiler alert! 😂)

If you’re brave…please visit us! 😂 So much to love about this country. In addition to the fabulous parks, there is the amazing music, food, amazing cultural kindness (it’s rare to hear a child cry!)…

You know how to contact me! You won’t regret.
