Where to stay

Some of the wonderful places to stay that we frequently recommended.

Rubondo Island Camp £££££

  • Tanzania
  • Beach and Island Escapes

Just a short distance from the Serengeti, Rubondo Island is heralded as the largest island national park in Africa, totally remote and highly suited to the African enthusiast looking for another perspective. Situated in the southwestern corner of Lake Victoria and still within the borders of Tanzania, Rubondo is home to a pristine equatorial forest.

Situated on a private island, a short boat ride from the main island of Zanzibar, Mnemba Island Lodge offers sheer unpretentious paradise. If you have ever dreamt of being marooned on an island with white beaches overlooking azure seas whilst luxuriating in fine linen and dining on a world-class fare, then Mnemba is for you. Each of the ten traditionally sculptured, luxurious bandas has direct access onto the beach and the water beyond. The very comfortable bar and romantically lit dining room tempt you in after a sunset dhow cruise where the bartender knows just how to mix the perfect Dawa cocktail.
