Fanjove Island

Songo Songo Archipelago, Tanzania

Surrounded by coral reefs that are teeming with marine life, and white sandy beaches lapped by brilliant blue waters; Fanjove Island is an idyllic escape along Tanzania’s southern coast. 

We love the intimacy and privacy of the island, which boasts just 10 luxurious beach villas. Each villa offers beautiful ocean views, and has been built using traditional and natural materials to lessen its footprint. The interiors are simple yet stylish and include a lovely ensuite bathroom as well as sitting and dressing areas. Enjoy scrumptious menus at the open-air restaurant, where dishes reflect the multicultural heritage of the islands (think: fragrant curries and freshly caught seafood). Be sure to ask your hosts about their sundowners on top of the 19th century lighthouse.

Why We Love It:

The whole lodge has been designed to minimize its impact on the island. Here, they are trying to keep the pristine nature of the island and its surrounding waters, which is evident in the flourishing, natural coral reef that extends for miles.
