We were looking for a more quite and private place near Nungwi , where we could visit the more touristic Nungwi, but also easily escape it, and where you do not feel like just another tourist in a hotel. Although, The Game Fish Lodge didn’t has a website and while reading the few comments on Tripadvisor, I got this haunch that this was the place to be. So, I booked 6 nights in July 2010 at the Game Fish Lodge. The owners Colin and Lesley picked us up at the airport to bring us to their lovely, peaceful place. While meeting them and arriving at their breathtaking place, with hammocks from which you can enjoy the sea, I knew my haunch that this was the best place to be on Zanzibar was right. This was the peace we were looking for.
Besides that the surrounding is heavenly, Colin and Lesley are really caring people and make you feel at home right away. They want you to enjoy life at their place and they are capable to give that feeling to you.
Each morning Colin and Lesley prepare you a delicious breakfast. Also the evening dinners are the best dinners you’ve ever had. Colin - who really is a master in cooking - makes whatever you like. Always fresh meat or fresh fish in the most delicious ways. It’s really wine & dine in the greatest ambiance.
The time we spent there was the most wonderful time we’ve had. Their lodge is very private with 4 nice clean rooms each with their own veranda overlooking the beautiful turquoise coloured sea. They bring you to different beaches for free to explore the island. They are great hosts and they really are very special people! You’re not treated like guests, they treat you like friends with their warm hospitality. We feel so lucky that we have found this special place with these special people that we have already booked again for December.
Make sure that when you go to Zanzibar, that you don’t miss this place!!!
