Mnemba Island forms part of an exquisite atoll, which has been declared a marine conservation area. Mnemba Island Lodge is on a private island off the coast of Zanzibar. Twelve bandas, with spacious outdoor verandas, are tucked away in a very private and secluded stretch of shade within the tropical beach. Pristine sandy white beaches fringe this exclusively romantic piece of heaven, forming a halo around Mnemba Island. These rustic and simple, yet luxurious bandas ensure absolute privacy.

The bandas are hand woven from traditional Zanzibari palm fronds, all with their own private verandah which is perfect for escaping the midday heat and enjoying an afternoon siesta. The emphasis is on total relaxation in natural surroundings, with the fully stocked bar on the beach and alfresco dining adding to the laid-back atmosphere.

Food at Mnemba is out of this world, with delicious fresh seafood and local Zanzibari and Italian specialities served daily. Days are spent swimming in the crystal clear waters and strolling on the pristine beach that circles the island. For the active, the Mnemba Atoll and the surrounding waters offer some of the best scuba diving and fishing to be found in Africa. A spectacular array of activities allows you the best possible opportunity to enjoy the magnificent protected coral reefs that Mnemba Island offers. Giant turtles, ghost crabs and incredible tropical fish are some of the spectacular underwater marvels and delights available for viewing.

Top tip:

Start your day off with a stroll around your own paradise island. Then spend the day diving in the clear blue waters around the island and finish your evening off with a mouth watering sea food barbeque. Alternatively recline on your sunlounger and wait for everything come to you.
