|MNEMBA ISLAND LODGE
EAST AFRICA ZANZIBAR TANZANIA
CC Africa’s Mnemba Island Lodge is situated on an exclusive island just 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) off the north-eastern tip of Zanzibar in the azure Indian Ocean. Surrounded by an atoll of breathtaking coral reefs, it boasts some of Africa’s most wonderful dive sites.
|Mnemba is renowned as
one of the most romantic ocean destinations in the world, offering a
privacy and rustic exclusivity unparalleled on the African
The Zanzibar Archipelago and its ‘Spice Islands’, discovered by Arab traders in the 8th century, are bathed in the heady scents and romance of a bygone era. Traditional dhows (coastal Arab sailing vessels) drift across the horizon, and gentle soft-spoken islanders tend to your every need. You may fill your days relaxing on the soft white-sand beaches or indulging in irresistible pursuits in the gloriously warm waters. Fresh fruit, fish and shellfish are served daily, and romantic candle-lit dinners at the water’s edge will capture your soul.
Hand-woven from traditional Zanzibarian palm-matting, each secluded banda has a
|spacious veranda and is
hidden in the shade of a tropical beach forest, fringed by the
pristine beaches that halo the Island.
A palm-covered walkway leads to an en suite bathroom with shower and basin. Zanzibar is famous for its intricate, detailed woodcarvings and the scrolled headboards adorning the beds are created by some of the Island’s most skilled artisans.
Sheer unpretentious paradise, the architecture of the Lodge offers a rustic exclusivity and privacy unparalleled on the African coastline.
Thatched dining and sitting/bar areas have
beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular coral reefs
beyond. Baskets of fresh fruit, fish, lobsters, crabs and prawns are
sailed into Mnemba daily on traditional ngalawa outriggers, and
prepared as exotic delicacies. Lunch is usually served on large
wooden carved Zanzibar platters heaped with delicious mezze (fingerfood).
Romantic candle-lit dinners are enjoyed on the beach with the waves
gently lapping at your feet. Private beach dinners are often enjoyed
