Mnemba Island Lodge

Gorgeously soft sands, inviting blue-green waters and warm ocean breezes… this is the very definition of barefoot island living.

Off the tip of north-eastern Zanzibar Mnemba Island Lodge is your answer to an exclusive beach hideaway. Romance and relaxation are guaranteed with private beach dinners beneath star-strew skies, open-sided bandas set right on the sands and sunset dhow cruises. This is the place to round off your African safari for the ultimate ‘bush and beach’ experience!

About Mnemba Island Lodge

Ever wanted a private island experience? It’s waiting for you at Mnemba Island Lodge! Life here is all about simple pleasures – think dining on fresh seafood with your toes in the sand and days spent doing absolutely nothing at all. Beachfront bandas have a rustic charm about them with open-sided walls letting in ocean breezes, crisp white linens draped on four poster beds and en-suite showers adorned with delicate Kenyan glass beads. With staff outnumbering the handful of guests two-to-one, service here is unquestionably excellent – you’ll love waking up to tea delivered right to your door. When not lazing on your private beach sala (there’s one for every guest) there’s an underwater world to explore within this marine conservation area – snorkel straight from the beach or dive the surrounding coral reefs. Paradise is calling!
