Stayed at Mnemba Island Lodge for 2 nights in early March. The scenery is spectacular, the water crystal clear and the "pampering" is well done. But there are other places that offer similar benefits at a more affordable price with less "hassle". To get there requires a drive through destitute parts of Zanzibar (quite a contrast to the luxury of the lodge) and a bumpy 30 minute trek down what is little better than a trail, then a motor boat trip. Also, check out is early in the morning. Had our 's delayed but only after a major hassle with the company. Booked the Crater Lodge and Serengeti Under Canvas with &Beyond---both well worth it---would have skipped Mnemba---better options available in the Caribbean.
