“Great”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

we spend about 4 night in pemba magic lodge in one of their chalets with air-conditioning. The chllets are great as well as the service. The owner Russel is a really helpful and friendly owner. Hitch a ride to wimbe beach because it is about 2 miles down the road, but is a great place to stay!

We got to Pemba Magic Lodge by luck, driving some 2Kms past Wimbe beach. We originally intended to have a meal there and check the place out, but finally we ended up staying a few days. The place has a big structure that serves as bar & restaurant alongside which are bungalows and the campsite. They also have dormitory facilities. We were camping there, there are a few shady spots but the pool is the major bonus! The other good thing about Pemba Magic is that it looks like the only watering hole in Pemba, which draws in a healthy mix of expats and locals every night. All in all a good place to set up camp, actually the only place where you can camp in Pemba, and exchange stories with locals or fellow travellers!
