Ok, from the states, prepare for a long voyage. Plan and take the time needed to fully enjoy this remote, isolated spot on the planet. For us, it was LAX, London, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar as the first part! Stay the night in Zanzibar. Rest up for the rather long overland dirt road ride to the other side of... More

Excellent service in a very relaxed atmosphere. The food, the rooms, the sunsets and the scuba diving are very good. You are on bare feet the whole time. One of our best vacations! The staff makes the difference!

My wife and I experienced mnemba in October 2002 and we returned in December 2014 with all of our children and grandchildren to find that every banda had been replaced with a larger version of what we remembered. Thus the best got better without losing a drop of what makes it so special. The food is as good as any... More

Mnemba Island off the coast of Zanzibar is like a Childrens storybook paradise island, fringed by white coral sloping into turquoise shallows and then deep sea. There are frequent sightings of dolphins and green turtles come to Mnemba to lay their eggs. Guests at the lodge can see both turtles and, at some times of year, hatchlings scrambling down to...

I can't help but agree with the other non believers of this tired and highly over priced location . Yes the journey for the last 20 mins is quite uncomfortable ...and yes the birds are very loud at night and wake you at 5am even wearing ear plugs does not help . The island is very windy , so much... More

Words can't do this place justice, so I will simply say if you are considering staying here, please do. You won't regret it. Yes, it is very expensive, but if you can swing it. it is worth it, in my opinion.

Oh my word.... This was a holiday of a lifetime. After doing the entire &Beyond Tanzania safari run we left the best for last! I absolutely cannot fault anything about mnemba, from the service to the food... It was a 11/10. The smiling faces of the staff will stay with me forever. Roja our butler rocked!! They cannot do enough... More

We stayed at Mnemba in May 2014. I had studied the reviews on Mnemba well and so my expectations were very high. I can say quite easily that I give it 5 out of 5. It is absolutely beautiful. Hard to believe that somewhere like it exists just a 3 hour flight from SA. Accommodation is really wonderful! A colonial... More

What more can I add to the glowing reviews. A beautiful desert island in the Indian Ocean, 6 other guests, and a staff devoted to making the experience wonderful. All true. I'll highlight some things others might not have covered. We went primarily for SCUBA diving. And the reefs are superior. Lush with life, very very healthy, and all within... More

Following eight days on safari, my husband Justin and I spent a week on the island. We found it absolutely stunning and had a wonderful time. Our banda was beautiful, right on the beach and we were so spoilt and well looked after by everyone. The food was amazing, delicious fresh fish, lobster and kalamari, if that was what you... More
