Mnemba is an idyllic, untouched tropical atoll, located just off the north-east coast of Zanzibar.
The only buildings on the island are those of the lodge, and the only inhabitants are the lodge staff and guests. Mnemba sleeps a maximum of 20 guests in the individual bandas (thatched bungalows) each of which has its own private veranda and stretch of sand.
The island is just one mile in circumference, and ringed with pristine white beaches and turquoise waters. A protection zone surrounds the island, conserving magnificent coral reefs where tropical fish and giant turtles drift through the lagoons.
Activities on offer include snorkelling, diving, kayaking, fly fishing and windsurfing. Alternatively you can enjoy walks around the island, or just relax on the beach and watch the dhows drift by. Evening meals are served on the beach, under the stars. Mnemba is pretty much the ultimate romantic hideaway, offering seclusion, exclusivity and immaculate service.
