Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive on Zanzibar island

On arrival in Zanzibar you'll be transferred to Mnemba Island Lodge, a collection of secluded beachside cottages situated within a Marine Reserve. After settling in, order a drink from the bar, take in the beautiful sea views and start planning the coming days.

Days 2-6

Enjoy sea, sun, sand and seclusion

The next five days are yours to do as much or as little as you want. Soak up the sun on gorgeous, secluded beaches, take to the translucent waters on a sea kayak, indulge yourself with a range of therapeutic massages and treatments - the choice is yours.

The lodge is situated within a marine reserve comprising distinct habitats which are home to a diverse array of Indian Ocean marinelife. Mnemba offers spectacular diving and snorkelling opportunities, as well as fly fishing, and you can swim directly from the beach.

Lunch is selected by you, and a menu is drawn up everyday which you can discuss with your butler. Baskets of fresh fruit, fish, lobster, crab and prawns are sailed into Mnemba daily on traditional ngalawa outriggers, and served on the beach each night or in the outside banda.

Beach barbeques are often organised, and for romantics, Mnemba Island Lodge can arrange a private beach dinner where you and your partner will feel the waves gently lapping at your feet as you dine.

Enjoy leisurely walks around the island, exploring the craft shops, or take a tour of the 'Spice Island', Zanzibar.

Day 7

Say farewell to Mnemba

After breakfast, transfer back to Zanzibar International Airport for your flight home. Should you wish to extend this itinerary, contact your Africa Safari Expert who can arrange a further adventure.
