Mnemba Island Lodge is situated on an exclusive island just 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) off the north-eastern tip of Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean. Mnemba Island Lodge is surrounded by an atoll of breathtaking coral reefs and it boasts some of Africa’s top dive sites.
Mnemba is also an ideal retreat for a romantic getaway and it offers a privacy and rustic exclusivity unparalleled on the African coastline.
The perfect beach retreat to get away from it all, for those that are lucky enough to be able to afford it.

Mnemba, an Arabic word meaning octopus head, is a 20-minute cruise in a traditional 16 foot flat-bottomed boat from the Island of Zanzibar.
A protection zone surrounds the island, conserving magnificent coral reefs where giant turtles, ghost crabs and spectacular tropical fish drift through the lagoons.
