Mnemba Island, Tanzania

Mnemba Island is an ideal tropical heaven for holidaymakers located off the Tanzanian coast within the Zanzibar Archipelago, directly opposite Matemwe Beach on Tanzania main land coast. It is a tiny rectangular island with a circumference of less than two kilometers and it is surrounded by oval reef, which leads to it being incorrectly referred to as the Mnemba atoll. The Island is renowned throughout the east Africa as a scuba diving site and it is popular since it houses a wide variety of corals and numerous other marine species. Snorkeling is not allowed within a radius of 200 meters from the island. It is a privately owned paradise for those ready to enjoy the pleasures this island has to offer.

When traveling from stone town on the main Zanzibar Island, it takes about a one and a half hour drive then a boat crossing of about twenty more minutes. The boat ride gives you the opportunity to experience the sight of the beauty of Mnemba Island from a far distance. Travelling to the Zanzibar archipelago is by either air where you land at the international airport on the main island or you travel by a cruise ship. The journey from the main island is adventurous if you love exploring different cultures, as here is where you first come face to face with the famous east African Swahili culture.

The island being privately owned by the Mnemba island lodge, there is only one place to get a good meal: the lodge. However the setting and the variety of food served here will blow you away and more than compensate for the lack of variety of hotels. Dining on the beach every day is legendary here, the cool breeze, the warm water and the endless shed of the blue ocean water does nothing other than adding to your appetite. The fantastic sea foods served by the Mnemba island lodge have no equal in east Africa. The food is delicious excellently served in a purely serene environment. The dining experience on Mnemba Island is nothing else but excellent.

Mnemba Island is an attraction in its entirety. A beautiful island surrounded by sparkling white sandy beaches and lovely forests. If you are a guest here, you can spend your day just lazing around on the beach or snorkeling along the coral reefs and perhaps explore the sea kayaks. However, if you love marine life, then diving would be your thing. You will however have to take a short boat ride out into the ocean to the coral reefs and have a go at exploring the wonderful marine life. You could also try your luck at sporting a dolphins and turtles.
