Thanda Island, Tanzania
Situated in southern Tanzania’s Shungi Mbili Island Marine Reserve, Thanda Island offers exquisite tropical privacy for families and friends to enjoy on a sole-use basis.
It has taken 10 years to discover and develop this remarkably uncommon destination. Off-grid and solar-powered, Thanda Island offers guests an environmentally sensitive, fun and restorative Indian Ocean experience in total seclusion. Comprising an expansive five-bedroom villa featuring an impressive glass rim-flow swimming pool and a huge indoor aquarium to rival its outdoor counterpart, it combines casual beach-house living with outdoor ocean adventures. The villa accommodates 10 adults, with the option of additional children sharing.
Exclusive use of Thanda Island is available through Aardvark Safaris from US$10,000 (£7,150) per night, (minimum stay of 3-7 nights depending on the season). This all-inclusive rate includes a team of dedicated staff, boat transfers from Mafia Island and all the activities offered on the island, along with all meals and drinks including Thanda’s handpicked selection of wines and champagnes. Spa treatments, diving, exclusive wines and champagnes are extra.
