The Mangrove Lodge is a very nice lodge with very clean, large and cosy Bungalows and a stunning garden. It is much cheapter than most accomodation in Sansibar (eventhough it doesn't offer less) and the food is delicious!
The Mangrove Lodge has a private beach with no other tourists around. Accordingly, it is a great choice for People who want to escape mass tourism.
Haji and Marina are most kind and helpful Hosts who also organize great day trips for their guests (beach, snorkeling, Stonetown with great guides, village tour...very reliable and careful taxi drivers ensure safe transport). What we appreciated particularly was the ability to get in touch with the local Population through Haji, who was born in Chuini, the village where the Lodge is located. Furthermore, the Mangrove Lodge is actively involved into community work. The most recent project is a dispensary, which will be officially opened the end of this month.
The Mangrove Lodge is located at the west coast of Sansibar. The beach is a Little less nice then at the east cost, however it is possible to see the sunset from the west coast, while the sun sets quite early at the east coast (about 5pm).
