Fanjove Private Island Lodge

Flights are available from Dar es Salaam to Songo songo (1 hour), the main Island of the archipelago, and from here some 40 minutes by a traditional dhow sailing boat to Fanjove Island. The island is less than a kilometer long and was previously uninhabited, save for some local fishermen who used it as an occasional fishing base.

The individual Bandas are distributed along the main beach to guarantee privacy, each with a view of the ocean. The dhow-shaped Bandas are all made of wood from planted wood and makuti (palm leaves), only the bathroom is built in concrete but fitted in harmony with the rest of the building.

The Bandas are designed to be completely open at the front to make the best of the view, with doors and curtains in different combinations at guests’ convenience for protection from wind and sun. There is a balcony upstairs for guests wishing to enjoy the view from a higher point.

The lounge, bar and dining areas are almost invisible from the boat on arrival, shaded by the beach palms and built with natural materials blending with the island background.

The lodge serves delicious meals of fusion cuisine reflecting the multicultural influence from the historical past of the area; dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice.
