LOCATION AND AREA
The north-east part of Zanzibar Island is known as Matemwe. This area is famous for its fine white sand beaches, the contrasting colours of the Indian Ocean and the beauty of the coral reef around the Mnemba Island.
Here the tides govern the rhythm of the day. At high tide the fisherman stream across the lagoon in their billowing dhows, delivering a dream opportunity for any photographer - and the lodge is a daily stop for the fishermen who sell fresh crab, lobster and fish to Matemwe for lunches and dinners. At low tide the sea goes right out revealing a fascinating reef which you can explore for hours.
Situated slightly south of Matemwe Lodge on the beach front, Matemwe Beach House enjoys unspoilt views through palm trees of the Indian Ocean and Mnemba Island. A short walk across the beach provides access to the main lodge should guests wish to use any of the facilities. Matemwe is just 60 minutes drive from Stone Town, allowing for easy day trips and excursions to all corners of this fascinating island....Read more
