We spent a week at Fundu Lagoon and unfortunately both my wife and I were both unwell for much of the time. For this reason it is difficult to give a full opinion on activities as we were unable to participate apart from a half days fishing.
The staff and food were all great as was the the beachside room, in which we spent rather a lot of time. I was a little surprised to be told on our arrival that should we feel unwell, it was probably the malaria tablets that were the cause and it would be best to stop taking them as Pemba was malaria free. We had arrived from a malaria area, so this seemed very dodgy advice. I have since checked malaria on Pemba and have mixed information. It seems that it has been very much reduced, but not necessarily eliminated. I stand to be corrected on this.
We were also warned about the sand flies, rightly so, because we were both bitten badly.
We didn't have a great experience, but I'm sure had we both been fully fit, we would have had a great time.
