THANDA ISLAND IN MAFIA
A stunningly beautiful, secluded haven in the Indian Ocean, off the northwestern island coastline of Mafia, Thanda Island gives you the impression of being a castaway, cut off from the rest of the world. This private island villa in East Africa is owned by a Swedish couple Christin and Dan Olofsson and they have built a luxury beach vacation stayover on its eight hectares offering you the finest of services, facilities and amenities designed to make your time truly unforgettable. The island lodge takes on the color scheme of the pristine, white sands, turquoise blue waters and lush green vegetation, and seems to blend in with its surroundings. Step out of your accommodation onto the beach and go for a long walk with the sands of Thanda sinking under your feet and the gentle ocean breezes ruffling your hair without the disturbance of human presence. Or, enjoy the relaxing ambience created by the indoor aquarium. The Steinway piano adds a touch of class while the infinity pool offers a lovely spot to sunbathe beside. This boutique resort also has a spa where expert masseuses offer wellness therapy. Thanda Island has just 5 Suites for premier AfricanMecca guests that are spacious enough to accommodate extra beds for children accompanying their parents (5 couples – 10 adults). The solar powered rooms include plush, four-poster king size beds with diaphanous mosquito netting. Dressers, seating arrangements, wardrobes for unpacking and other furnishings add to the indulgent comfort of the rooms. You can make use of the outdoor showers and copper beach baths. Do inform the hotel of the particular tastes and preferences you have and they will organize your meals, accordingly. You can look forward to sumptuous meals cooked with the freshest of seafood, Tanzanian spices, and other exotic ingredients. Choose from a delectable variety of global and local cuisine served to you in different romantic locations like for example, on the seashore in the evening with the waves tickling your toes and lanterns lighting up the waters. Every moment of your opulent holiday that you spend on Thanda Island will be filled with amazement of discovery as you explore the underwater realms of the Shungi Mbili Island Marine Reserve coral gardens teeming with a superb variety of reef life. You will be awestruck to see the sheer riot of colors as you go on scuba diving and snorkeling tours in locations like the Chole Bay and other sites around Mafia Island including Kinasi Pass, Milimani Coral Gardens and the Chole Wall. Look for gorgeous creatures like reef sharks, trevally, barracuda, sweetlips, Napoleon wrasse, reef rays, and giant gropers to name a scarce few. Should you trip out to these Mafia locations in the months from October to March, you might be able to go swimming with whale sharks and watch them feeding on plankton, krill, small squid and red crab larvae that abound in the waters of Thanda and the surrounding Tanzanian islands of Mafia. You could watch marine turtle hatchlings emerging from their sandy beach nests in August or watch humpback whales as they migrate to the south during the months of July to October. Go sailing around the island of Thanda or add an angling excursion in the deep-water sites to your travel itinerary with AfricanMecca Safaris. Also, take the time to view the unique flora and fauna on the island and on other locations close by.

The Zanzibar Stone Town tour guide was superlative. He was outstanding and gave us undivided attention. We felt that was great value and to be escorted round the market place and slave stations was like walking in a living museum.

I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.

We have returned from our African adventure and would like to thank you very much for your part in making this such a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to time the Great Migration from the Serengeti, which was amazing.

Ras Nungwi was a beautiful property, the pristine white beach not more than forty feet from our lovely room, the Indian Ocean sublime. Raza, it was the vacation of a lifetime, again, thanks so much.
