Karibu Ushongo,

Mike Fritsi, host of Mikes Beach Cottages
Your host Mike Fritsi

Pangani & Ushongo beach with its miles long deserted beaches, the crystal-clear water, sunshine almost all year round and the beautiful landscape inland is my home turf. It is a pleasure to welcome you to Fishing with Mike, the only fishing charter on Tanzania’s north coast that can provide you unforgettable adventure of sport fishing in Zanzibar and Tanzania.

Sisal plantations, the “white gold of Africa” formed the wealth of this region and it brought also my swiss father to Tanzania. I grew up on Mwera Estate, then one of the biggest Sisal plantations worldwide, near Ushongo Beach. It’s beach and the Indian ocean were my weekend playground, and already as a child, I dreamed of owning my proper resort here.

The downfall of the Sisal industry in Tanzania brought also hardship to my family. At some point, the palm trees at the Beach and the stars of Africa’s sky became my rooftop and I had to move further north. I spent several years of my youth as a Captain on Deep-Sea fishing charters in Kenya. Deep-sea fishing in the rich waters before East Africa became my passion. I would love to welcome you on a fishing trip on my boat the “Sea Wolf”, who knows maybe you will be lucky and catch a Marlin or Tuna?

Deep-sea fishing is not only my passion, but it was also the foundation of Mike’s Beach Cottages. When I started to build this secluded resort, I build every brick with my own hands. Every fishing trip was literally one more bag of cement which helped me build the resort cottage by cottage. Our impressive Beach Restaurant was manually built without any crane. Our chef will be delighted to prepare your own fish for dinner.

I hope to welcome you soon on a fishing trip with the “Sea Wolf”.

Asante kwa kutumia muda na sisi.

Mike Fritsi
