Fanjove Island is the smallest of six islands in the Songosongo Archipelago, just off the coast of Tanzania. Palm-fringed, powder-white sands; azure, shimmering waters; the call of birdsong; and the whole island to yourself. As a secluded island, guests share Fanjove only with the abundant resident marine life, and of course our dedicated staff, who help to deliver the experience of a lifetime. Intact coral reef spans for miles; the prolific wildlife includes spinner dolphin, green turtles and humpback whales. On Fanjove, time seems to have no pull, and guests feel privileged to alight upon this pristine island – an unadulterated paradise, still very much as nature intended. Only the 19th century lighthouse and some architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous occupation by anything other than wildlife – evoking thoughts of historical discovery, desert island life and adventure. The accommodation is everything you would expect; six discreet, eco-chic private bandas are set along the sandy shore in complete harmony with the environment. Made from all natural, traditional materials, the whole property is designed to leave as little footprint possible.
