Fanjove Private Island Lodge Tanzania

Fanjove Private Island Lodge consists of eco-friendly private bandas located on Fanjove Island, a private Island located south of Dar es Salaam and part of the Songo Songo Archipelago, Southern Tanzania. 

This exquisite natural setting is like a fount of Arcadian dreams and literary legend. As a secluded island, guests share Fanjove only with the abundant resident marine life, and of course, our dedicated staff, who help to deliver the experience of a lifetime.

Guests will fly from Dar es Salaam via Mafia Island to Songo Songo island. Coastal Aviation fly twice a day approximately 50 minutes flying time. From Songo Songo airport it is a short ride to the shoreline for a 45-minute boat/dhow trip across to Fanjove island.

Fanjove Private Island Lodge Tanzania

Fanjove Private Island Lodge  has 6 discreet, eco-friendly private bandas set along the sandy shore in complete harmony with the environment.   The bandas are A-framed, shaped to resemble a Dhow sail, reflecting the local traditional sailing boats which may break the endless horizons as you gaze out to sea.

Each banda is open at its front to capitalize on the uninterrupted ocean views, which can also be enjoyed from the upstairs balcony. The whole property has been designed to minimize its environmental footprint.

Solar power is employed for all the rooms, and the buildings use traditional, natural materials – sustainable wood, Mukuti (palm leaves), and thatch.  Simple, stylish, comfortable, and completely in keeping with the unpretentious Fanjove vibe, the accommodation provides the perfect base from which to explore the island, shores, and seas.

An open-air restaurant and lounge area is the ideal focal point at the end of the day, from where to gaze at the starlit skies and appreciate the undisturbed surroundings. Appetizing fusion cuisine is served on understated yet stylishly-dressed tables on the beach.

The menu reflects the multicultural heritage of the islands and may include outstanding curries or freshly caught fish of the day. For a truly unparalleled experience, sundowners at the top of the 19th-century lighthouse can be arranged.

Activities available from Fanjove Island include; diving and snorkeling, Marine Safari, Bird Watching, Kayak Safari, Sand Bank Excursion, Dhow Sailing, Fishing, Fanjove Nature Trail, Relaxing, etc.
