We travelled to Fundu Lagoon with 2 friends after gorilla trekking in Rwanda and met 2 more friends at Fundu where we spent a wonderful 7 nights.
From the moment we arrived we could not have been better cared for by all the staff especially the manager Hannes. Make sure to ask him about all the hotel does for the local community and how it came into existence , so interesting.
The accommodation is 5 star beach chic and barefoot, beautifully done to compliment the setting. Do not expect Dubai 5 star bling, this is on the edge of the jungle, on a beach, on a remote island off the coast of Africa. I think what they do here is completely amazing. And the food is the best I have had in Africa. Go on all the trips, to the island to snorkel, the dolphin safari, the sunset cruise and the village walk.
One word of warning, take Deet insect repellant and apply liberally at all times, we did and were not bitten once but those who ignored this advice paid the consequences!!
I have never been more sad to leave at the end of a holiday , quite simply we all adored Fundu.
Thank you Hannes.
