Set less than 40 kilometres / 25 miles from Zanzibar’s international airport, Bahari View Lodge is an ideal accommodation for a post-safari beach holiday. Enjoy coffee and breakfast on the savannah in East Africa and then fly to Zanzibar for a sunset cocktail with the Indian Ocean lapping at your feet.
Bahari View Lodge offers affordable accommodation in Zanzibar without sacrificing comfort and convenience. The word ‘bahari’ means ‘ocean’ in Swahili and the lodge is naturally located just back from a lovely white-sand beach that is protected by offshore reefs. It is a classic setting under swaying palm trees while the lodge sits surrounded by lush tropical gardens. You can do as much or as little as you please: the in-house bicycles are free to use to explore the area, there is a swimming pool, a restaurant, a beach bar and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access.
Scuba divers and snorkelers will want to explore the famed coral reefs of nearby Pajé while those looking to keep their feet dry can enjoy walking around the historic capital Stone Town, join an informative spice tour (this is the Spice Island, after all) or visit Jozani Forest to search for wildlife in this unique rainforest reserve, which is home to the red colobus, one of the rarest monkeys in Africa.
