We spent 10 days in June 2013 at the Red Monkey Lodge and had a fantastic time.
Red Monkey is an authentic place that is situated at a beautiful beach, next to an african village.
You can go for nice walks (even more beautiful at low tide), learn kite-surfing, relax with a book or your ipad on one of the sunbeds/hammocks/couches or ask Mark and Kristin to organise a trip for you to explore the island. We went for a 3 day last-minute safari in Selous that Mark booked for us and it was just perfect and an amazing experience.
In the evening you can enjoy a four course meal and watch local people playing football at the beach.The bar is open until late, but quiet, so we just had a few drinks and enjoyed the peaceful evenings.
Red Monkey lodge is the place you should go if you like to meet interesting people of different nationalities. The bungalows are very nice and clean with own bathroom. Don't expect a 5 star hotel with a big pool and fixed dinner times full of boring couples. It is just a beautiful place with a relaxed atmosphere!
