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.

Mnemba Island Lodge is 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 coastline.

Mnemba Island Zanzibar, an Arabic word meaning octopus head, is a 20-minute cruise in a traditional 16 foot flat-bottomed boat from the Island of Zanzibar. Just one-mile in circumference, a pristine swathe of beach halos the island, fringed by a tropical forest.

A protection zone surrounds the island, conserving magnificent coral reefs where giant turtles, ghost crabs and spectacular tropical fish drift through the lagoons.

Rooms & Suites:

Hand-woven from traditional Zanzibarian palm-matting, each of the 10 secluded bandas on this Indian ocean island has a spacious veranda and is hidden in the shade of a tropical beach forest. 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.

Food & Wine:

Thatched dining and sitting/bar areas have beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular coral reefs beyond. Baskets of fresh fruit, fish and lobsters are brought by traditional outriggers to Mnemba's shore, to be prepared as exquisite and exotic delicacies.


Relaxation is the hallmark of Mnemba Island Lodge and the tempo of the day is yours to choose. The calm, azure seas around Mnemba offer irresistible water activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, fly fishing, windsurfing and swimming directly from the beach at no additional cost. Excellent birdwatching, beautiful walks around the Island or simply suntanning on the pristine beach may also be enjoyed.

Optional extras when staying at Mnemba Island Lodge include diving courses, deep-sea fishing, a tour of the ancient 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar, and a range of relaxing massages and therapeutic treatments.
