Zanzibar South Coast - Hotels & Lodges

  • Unguja Lodge - Kizimkazi

Unguja Lodge is situated at the Southern tip of Zanzibar, near Kizimkazi Mkunguni. It is a very quiet part of the island with pristine beaches and lush green surroundings. That lodge has 12 spacious self-contained cottages. Some of them have a sea view and a private terrace overlooking the Menai Bay. At the restaurant, everything is made from scratch, even the crisps and the bread rolls. Being so close to the sea his specialty is obviously fish and seafood but you can also choose meat or a vegetarian meal.

  • Mama Root - Kizimkazi

Mama Root is a Beach House in Kizimkazi, made for all of you - thirsty for white sands and aquamarine water. With only 6 rooms, you will be far from mass tourism.

  • Ujamaa Beach Resort

From buildings with Makuti roof (palm leaves) to furnishings with local fabrics and furniture constructed with a wooden boat, everything here reflects and respects the zanzibarine typical style. A simple and genuine menu that enhances the most authentic flavors of the territory: dietary of the season, herbs and fruits of their tropical garden and fresh fish, caught every morning by their staff.

About the beach here...

This place is known for being the starting point for sea excursions to meet dolphins, that we do not recommend to do because it is not sustainable. These tours don't respect the Menai Bay Conservation Area guidelines which we follow.

However, you can enjoy the fine white sand, the turquoise water and watch the fishermen come back from their fishing.
