An Island Escape in Tanzania

Day 1

Arrive On Your Island

This is the start of your escape! Depending on your choice of island you'll arrive by plane or boat (not included; we will arrange this as required for you), to be greeted by smiling staff who you'll get to know well over the next week. Gaze out over the ocean as you realise this is your home for the next 5 wonderful days. This evening the chef will treat you to some superb cuisine, perhaps including the freshest seafood, and later you'll sink into your bed, falling asleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore. Dinner.

A Typical Day On Fanjove Island

Should Fanjove be your destination, you'll find yourself on a classic deserted island. Armed with a map from the lodge, take a tour of your domain, following trails inland, walking along the beach, or take to the water in a kayak for a full circumnavigation! The lodge supplies diving and snorkelling equipment to let you observe shoals of fish, turtles and colourful corals, an entrancing underwater world. Take a boat cruise to spot bottle-nose and spinner dolphins, and with luck you'll be able to go swimming with these playful, intelligent creatures. Spending time among natural wonders is a real pleasure and privilege on Fanjove.

A Typical Day On Mafia Island

Life on Mafia Island is unhurried. You can explore Mafia's beaches, lakes and forests, board a dhow for trips to neighbouring islands, or propel yourself in a kayak for some independent adventure, maybe stopping off to make friends in a village. You're welcome to spend lazy days, too, barely stirring from the lodge. Sunbathe, swim in the sea or pool, chat to other guests and de-stress with a soothing massage. As the sun goes down make your way to the bar to toast another day in paradise!
