Our staff is the backbone and the key to please you as our guest. They will do their best to tempt you to come back again and again!

Let us introduce you our great team. As first, Khadija: she will clean and arrange your room. And Baja, our lifeguard/beachman, a former fisherman who swims better than most.


In the kitchen, Frank has a team of "magicians" helping him: Rose, Grace, Azizi... all of them really know how to cook the meals of your dreams!


Our trainee Marie or her colleagues will be available to answer your questions or to arrange everything from your private shopping from town to your romantic beach lunch by the Baobab tree.


Mohammed has a good group of gardeners, a carpenter and a painter to maintain and develop our areas. They all pitch in to make you feel in "Your Home Away from Home"!

Paka Adventures Ltd. is a new but fast growing company. It is operated by Norwegians with good help from Tanzanian partners and the local employees. It is divided into two parts – the safari and tour company and our very own beach paradise, The Lighthouse Beach Resort.


The managers, Eivind and Helene, have been living in the country since the end of 2007 but travelling around Tanzania since the millennium. Good friends are the ground pillar for the success of this company.


The Paka People


Behind every successful company there is somebody that has to do the heavy lifting with the official work.


We have Frank, the solid spine of this company, who takes care of our every challenge. His jobs are many, from managing the hotel to mopping the office floor. His long experience in the hotel industry, as well as his clever skills with the official works, makes us wishing he could be divided into more than one person. Frank is a person you can meet anywhere: organizing your arrival, managing The Lighthouse Beach Resort, cooking some of his delicious recipes… or just to check on you to make sure you are enjoying your stay.


Even though this is a fairly new company, our resources are stronger than many others: Otto, our safari manager, has many years experience as a driver/guide, and he knows all the corners of the country. Being a guide for more than 15 years, he is practically a walking library when it comes to wildlife, but challenge him about the flora and fauna and he will surely impress you with his wide knowledge. Together with Otto we have a wide team of well educated and experienced driver guides like Apollo, Davis and others, an not to forget Sokolo, our trusted mechanic and driver, together with a team of  garage workers a.s.o.


All of the "Paka Family" has something in common: we work day and night to make sure that you are satisfied from the first time you contact us. This is also the reason why we have worked so hard to produce as much information as possible for you in this website, and we’ll keep it forever growing.
