Fanjove Private Island Lodge, Zanzibar Island Archipelago Destinations

Fanjove Private Island Candle Light Dinner


 Fanjove Private Island is sure to redefine your idea of paradise. The Fanjove Private Island is part of the Songo Songo Archipelago, 140km south of Dar es Salaam, in the Indian Ocean. It's less than a kilometer long and has only six bandas, this is one of only two private-island experiences in Tanzania (the other being the very expensive Mnemba Island).

The island was previously uninhabited, except for some local fishermen who used it as an occasional fishing base. This is the first time tourists have had the opportunity to stay and explore its beautiful beaches and wildlife.

Expanses of white sand fringed by coconut palms welcome you to Fanjove Island, part of the Songo Songo Archipelago in the Indian Ocean. Colorful reefs surround the island and turtles, rays and dolphins are never far away.

With its crystal clear waters, 11 kilometers of intact coral reef and abundant wildlife, you will spend your days soaking up the remote beauty of the island. Snorkeling and diving expeditions can be organized once on the island and offer some of the best diving. Take time to explore the ruins of the 19th century lighthouse, enjoy the sunshine and stroll along pristine beaches where you may happen upon nesting turtles.

Fanjove Island is the jewel in the crown of the Songo Songo Archipelago, and is home to Fanjove Private Island Lodge. A handful of charming cottages strung out along a dazzling beach lapped by turquoise water. Each has a rustic feel to it and is powered by solar energy.

The local culinary specialties of coconut-milk curries and fresh seafood are to die for. All can be washed down with locally brewed beer and are served in the open-air lodge or privately on the beach next to the campfire.

The Fanjove Private Island offers simple living, incredible marine life and excellent diving in a pristine and little-discovered part of the Indian Ocean.
