Protected by a tranquil lagoon in a private island and just 15
minutes by boat from the main Unguja (Zanzibar) Island. With staff
and guests as the only human inhabitants on the Island, Mnemba offers a
privacy and exclusivity unparalleled on the African coastline.
NUMBER OF ROOMS
Mnemba Island Lodge has 10 secluded cottages build from natural palm
matting, timber and thatch. The cottages have en-suite bathrooms, and a
private verandah overlooking the lagoon.
RESTAURANTS & BAR:
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 by honeymooners.
OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
While relaxation is the hallmark of Mnemba, a variety of sea sports
are also offered on the Island including windsurfing, water-skiing, fly
and deep-see fishing and scuba diving.
