The land of beautiful beaches, warm weather, sprawling Serengeti plains, the highest mountain in Africa, and of course… Freddie Mercury – Tanzania is a land filled with delights and discoveries second to none.

We love discovering new spots and J. Rabbit’s has just opened its doors where the old Griffin used to be located. In case you were wondering it is named after that famed cartoon character, Jessica Rabbit and the vibe and décor lend itself perfectly to that notion, too. Following the speakeasies of yesteryear, access to the bar is through the laundromat in the front of the building before arriving in the plush Mexican styled bar at the back. Offering one of the biggest selections of tequila we have ever seen,...

Of course the hotels services and amenities are anything but old world and bullet speed...
