Welcome to the Friendly Gecko Guesthouse!

Review by Lonely Planet in 2018

Friendly Gecko guesthouse Tanzania Terrace
Something different: Friendly Gecko guesthouse.

“If you want to stay in Dar a couple of days and connect with an interesting project, consider checking into Friendly Gecko Guesthouse, 20km north of the city centre off New Bagamoyo Rd. The guesthouse has a mixture of simple rooms in a large, private house with a garden and kitchen, and all profits go to support affiliated community programs.”
