Located in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar is an archipelago made of a myriad of islands. The sailors and merchants who have crossed this mystical country on the way to India, this trading post for gold, ivory and spices have left behind a tangible sense of adventure. So naturally Zanzibar has retained traces of these passing civilisations: a zest of British empire, a fragment of Africa, a pinch of India and a lot of Arabic culture. The capital is home to the Stone Town, a real medina famous for its sculpted wooden doors. Lagoons and coral reefs are part and parcel of the island’s archipelagos and the Mnemba and Pemba are no exception to the rule. Our lodges, Mnemba Island and Fundu Lagoon, come naturally as the next stop after a luxurious safari in Tanzania.
