Caraway Beach Holiday

The epitome of a peaceful beach retreat, Caraway holiday offers relaxation on flawless beaches and the opportunity to explore beautiful waters. Stay in the island’s only lodge and enjoy complete exclusivity.

Caraway Beach Holiday: Summary

Caraway Beach Holiday in a nutshell

This idyllic holiday features use of a private island bordered by white sandy beaches and tropical vegetation. The only accommodation on the island is Fanjove Island Lodge, a comfortable beach lodge that successfully compliments its surroundings with its charming, rustic design.

The six available bandas are carefully positioned so as to allow guests maximum privacy, nestled amidst the vegetation so that your neighbours remain unseen. For those looking forward to relaxation, you will welcome the soft hush of waves lapping against the beach as you sit with your banda’s doors flung open or simply lounge upon the white sand.

The azure waters surrounding the island provide excellent habitat for a plethora of marine life and this can be closely explored with the diving and snorkelling opportunities made available from the lodge. You will also be able to explore the island by kayak or dhow, and when the weather allows, try your hand at kite surfing.

There are ample land-based activities to enjoy too, but if you would prefer entertainment of a more sedate kind, gentle exploration of the surrounding coves and rock pools will prove a pleasant way to pass the time.

For tranquil relaxation and stunning surroundings, visit private Fanjove Island.

Fanjove Island Lodge

Days 1-6

Brand new for 2013, Fanjove Island Lodge is part of the Songo Songo Archipelago, 140km south of Dar es Salaam, in the Indian Ocean. Less than a kilometre long and with only six bandas, this is one of only two private-island experiences in Tanzania (the other being the very expensive Mnemba Island). The island was previously uninhabited, save for some local fishermen who used it as an occasional fishing base. This is the first time tourists have had the opportunity to stay and explore its beautiful beaches and wildlife.
