EXPERIENCE MATEMWE LODGE

One of the main attractions of Matemwe is the world class diving at Mnemba Atoll. This is one of the best places for snorkeling and diving off Zanzibar, with a high chance of seeing turtles and wild dolphins in addition to the diverse and colourful coral reef fish.

But for many of our guests simply doing nothing is considered a serious activity. Do not be surprised if you are quite content to simply soak up the sun lying in a hammock with a good book or cocktail.

Regardless of whether you are feeling lazy or energetic the lodge has a number of activities and experiences on offer.

  • Snorkeling and diving at the famous reefs of Mnemba Atoll
