What a lovely surprise that the owner Haji met us at the airport with his lovely children - great welcome.
Last visited Zanzibar 6 months ago and so glad we booked Mangrove Lodge again for our stay. Restaurant refurbished, lovely deck overlooking the Palace Ruins and bay - great for lunch and drinks at sunset ... or any time of the day..
This is an ECO lodge - bring your toiletries, shampoo, shower gels etc (if you have forgotten anything Marina will get them when she goes to Stone Town). Nothing is too much trouble and Marina wants you to feel at home ... in her home.
You must book off the beaten tracks to Uzi and other places - Marina and Haji are passionate about the heritage or Zanzibar and have stories to share, they have a strong etheos on Eco for future generations and .. WE CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN.
Please look at their Pack for a Purpose - they are making such an impact to a lovely spot on earth - a little goes a long way. ENJOY
