Beaches and islands


Ras Kutani

A 15 Banda lodge, with 3 newly built suites with plunge pools, just south of Dar es Salaam. Great food and a great beach in a very private location. No diving. Natural fresh water lagoon and swimming pool.  One of our very favourites!

Guide Price$305 or $350 in a suite* Recommended *

Amani Beach

Amani is a small 12 room lodge just south of Ras Kutani, great food and beach and a lovely pool. Great for families  No diving.

Guide Price$240


Most clients include 1 or 2 nights in Zanzibar’s historic Stone Town before heading out to the beach.  There is plenty to do in Stone Town as well as shopping (spice tours, forest tours, trips to various offshore islands and swimming with dolphins) although the beaches around Stone Town are awful. The best beaches are to be found on the North or East Coast. All of Zanzibar’s beaches are extremely tidal.

Stone Town

The best hotels are either the Serena, (at $250) or the much smaller Beyt al Chai ($150).  Cheaper options include the Tembo, Dhow Palace or Emerson and Green (each about $120) which provide good value for money and are more charismatic; though slightly shambolic at times.

Beaches and islands

Mnemba Island

Best beach in Africa! 10 bandas spread out along the beach on this private island.  Superb diving, watersports, beaches, food and accommodation, - the ultimate in “barefoot luxury”

Guide Price $1,500 (including all watersports and drinks) *Recommended*


An incredibly exclusive and intimate hotel which offers some of the most luxurious rooms on the Island. Located on the North West tip allows for phenomenal sunsets which can be enjoyed from either of your two suite plunge pools! Needless to say the service and food is close to unrivalled and its location wins it for us. $750 (all inclusive) *Recommended*

The Palms

A one off enormous detached house with a plunge pool.  Huge rooms particularly beautifully furnished and with total privacy from the rest of the hotel.
