The Tiko crew will always be about for a chat or advice on local sights. There is a school on site so expect to meet lots of little ones!

Elke is very friendly and well organised. We went to Katete for the Kalumba event. The ceremony was amazing and thank to Elke we got very good seats. Elke provided us tickets, taxis and a pic-nic. Her team is welcoming. In the evening we danced with all the guests. Just great !

Tiko is a very nice place when you want to have a feel of how the locals live. We arrived late at night and received a warm welcome. Then in the morning we saw the locals busy with various projects. This is a community based accommodation which is basic and neat. We enjoyed our stay here and made new friends.
