We had such a nice holiday at Baobab House, relaxing and spending hours lying in the hammocks, swimming, walking and reading. I loved the house, which has a very special feel set in amongst baobab trees. There were very few other tourists on Manda Island...More

About the neighborhood
Baobab House is set in a secluded garden dominated by five giant Baobab trees. The house comes fully staffed with a cook and fisherman often show up at the door with their fresh catch. You can walk right onto the long, practically empty, beach, from the front doorstep, or take a walk into the island interior from the garden in the back. Down the beach to the left is the casual Blue Moon bar and restaurant with pizza oven and to the right you will find the five star bar and restaurant at The Majlis. Close to all the activities of the area and secluded in your own private house and garden, you have the best of all there is to offer.
