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.
