The swimming pool is clean and always the lifesaver was present. I must say that the environment is cool with all the mango trees providing a super experience. The family loved the... More

Mwembe is a great place to be, to relax. Great weather. The choice of swimming pools, and the vicinity of each from the apartments is just great. Looking forward to going there this year. The apartments at the African Village are great.
