Makunduchi is located one hour’s drive from Zanzibar’s capital, Stone Town. On your way here, you will cross the island West to East, travelling along roads lined with mango trees, seeing African villages and homes, cows and goats on the road, and passing through the Red Colobus monkey reserve.
Situated on the Indian Ocean, the views of the barrier reef offer a paradise retreat for beach lovers, swimmers and couples seeking a secluded place. By day, the fisher-women gather the daily catch and the local boats glide by. By night you can sit under a canopy of bright stars listening to the Indian Ocean splashing against the coral rocks. The view from the house is unobstructed, stretching as far as the eye can see – the next land mass is Indonesia to the East and Australia to the South East.
Makunduchi is the nearest village and offers a true experience of Africa, with red clay huts and goats, chicken and children running around. Close to Makunduchi is Kizimkazi, famous for its unique dolphin spotting. 10 km to the north lies the authentic village, Jambiani. The 4 km long white sand beach of Jambiani has many small restaurants and local bars to enjoy.

The northeast point of the peninsula has views of the beautiful sunsets and well worth a visit. The beach of Michamvi is a piece of untouched landscape where the tranquillity is striking.
