With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Fanjove Island Overview

Fanjove is a private island off the eastern coast of Tanzania’s mainland. It is located in the Songo Songo Archipelago, south of the capital city Dar es Salaam. To access the island, you will take a light aircraft plane to Songo Songo, and then take an hour-long boat to the secluded and magical island of Fanjove. With azure waters and white sand beaches, the island is nothing short of a paradise. The island has six eco-friendly bandas, each offering undisturbed views of the ocean and complete privacy. The shape and style of the bandas reflect traditional sailing boats and, with the front of the banda being able to open up, it offers indoor-outdoor living on this idyllic island. The main restaurant is also a similar style, with meals and drinks often served under the stars, with the feeling of white sand in between your toes. There is a 19th-century lighthouse close to the main area too, where you can enjoy sundowners from.
