Caraway Beach Holiday

The epitome of a peaceful beach retreat, the Caraway Beach 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 a private island bordered by white sandy beaches and tropical vegetation. Stay at the island's only accommodation, the comfortable Fanjove Island Lodge whose charming, rustic design complements its surroundings.

Just six "bandas" are nestled amidst the vegetation, carefully positioned to allow guests maximum privacy. Enjoy 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.

For many, this and the surrounding coves and rock pools provide the perfect way to enjoy the island. You can walk round the island, too; explore by kayak or dhow; do a spot of fishing; and perhaps try your hand at kite surfing. And then there is the option of snorkelling or diving: those azure waters are teeming with marine life.

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.
