Mnemba Island is located just off Zanzibar’s north-eastern tip. The island is private, home to Africa’s most exclusive beach lodge.

Mnemba Island Lodge itself is absolutely beautiful but also surprisingly modest. This is barefoot beach accommodation at its very best.

Mnemba is a paradise island. Surrounded by turquoise water and fantastic coral reef, Mnemba’s beaches are widely regarded as the finest in Africa. The snorkelling and coral reefs that surround the island are extremely good.

We believe this is one of the Top Two beach lodges in Africa (the other being Vamizi Island) and Mnemba is a contender for one of the world’s best private islands. However, there is one slight drawback – its cost. The island’s immense beauty comes with Africa’s highest price tag of any beach lodge.

The ten suites are nestled into the island’s forest interior, with each lodge having a private view out to the sea. While extremely high quality, the suites are simple in build, reflecting the atmosphere of such a pristine island.

Naturally activities are based around the water, with snorkelling, diving, fishing and boating available if you can tear yourself away from lazing on the beach.

"Mnemba's price tag scares off the vast majority of travellers, however for those who can afford it Mnemba has the best beach in Africa and only ten rooms. Offering exclusivity and laid back 'beach bungalow' style living, this little lodge is exceptional."
