Fanjove Private Island

Fanjove, Kilwa, Tanzania


Stay at Fanjove Private Island

Fanjove Private Island is sure to redefine your idea of paradise.

Newly built in 2013, this private island is located away from the more popular resorts on Zanzibar and offers guests a personal experience on only one of two private islands in the region.

Previously uninhabited, except for a few local fishermen who used the island as an occasional fishing base, Fanjove offers some of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in the world. It is home to the shy but colourful coconut crabs and an array of bird species which nest on the island.

Fanjove Private Island has only six suites (or bandas, as they are called) generously spaced out along the beach. Each has a rustic feel to it and is powered by solar energy.

The local culinary specialities of coconut-milk curries and fresh seafood are to die for. All can be washed down with locally brewed beer and are served in the open-air lodge or on the beach next to the campfire.

Overall a holiday at Fanjove is one of pure bliss and separation from your normal day to day life. This is the kind of resort people dream about visiting and is a destination that never disappoints.

The team members have been in the places they recommend so it is easier to choose the perfect place for your holiday. Thank you very much for all the work all the way to the end of our trip, and hopefully next year we can plan another trip with you guys.
