Who hasn’t dreamed of the quintessential Robinson Crusoe escape?

Where to stay

Nothing but the best. On this suggested Tanzania itinerary these are our handpicked, tried-and-tested choices.

Thanda Island, Tanzania

Thanda Island is one of the world's most exclusive island getaways. This is the ideal spot for those who want to experience a true island getaway in the complete privacy of family and friends. Set amongst its own marine reserve, whale sharks, humpback whales, sea turtles and a vast array of fish can be found making it an excellent spot for keeping snorkelers.

The main villa consists of 5 immaculately designed bedrooms, a large lounge and dining area complete with an enormous fish tank housing some of the many colourful fish you can see just offshore as well as an upstairs library. On the other side of the island are two Tanzanian bandas made from traditional reed with en-suite bathrooms - ideal for teens who want to be on the other side of the island from their parents! We were blown away by the experience of staying here, from the incredibly attentive staff, and array of sporting equipment, to the delicious food and natural beauty of the island itself.
