GUIDE ON LAZY LAGOON PRIVATE ISLAND IN TANZANIA
Take a seashore trip to Lazy Lagoon Island with AfricanMecca and you will see the fine-looking white sands with ocean waves lapping on them just as the first pioneers, Burton, Speke and Stanley did when they visited Bagamoyo. You can wander along the nine kilometers of untouched coastlines because the island is still mysterious and untainted to many visitors. You can also stay over in one of the twelve two story cottages offered by Lazy Lagoon Lodge.
What sets this Tanzania beach accommodation apart from its mainland counterparts is that its builders have taken the utmost care in creating it out of naturally occurring materials. They have designed it so that it caters to your needs on your eco-beach tour of Lazy Lagoon Island but does not leave any enduring human footprints on its pristine environs. The cottages are built keeping in mind the theme of traditional Swahili architecture with sloping roofs and also facing the sea to catch the cool breeze.
And as you relax in your Lazy Lagoon Island accommodation, in the restaurant or lounge, you can see fishermen take their ngalawas (fishing boats) out on their deep sea excursions every morning. On some afternoon, weather permitting, they might stop by at the lodge to offer you some fresh catch that the chef of the lodge will cook as part your three course meal for dinner or next day lunch.
To see more of the indigenous land and sea creatures, take a kayak ride. You will be able to see the mangrove trees up close with their inhabitants such as the bush babies, duikers, Suni antelopes and more. Also take a swim or a snorkeling expedition to explore the underwater Eden of this fascinating aquatic biosphere. View the coral and myriad species of fishes, crabs, sea anemones and many others. Often as the tide turns, some of these oceanic mortals are left behind in the rock pools on the shore.
As you take a morning walk on your East African seaside vacation, you might chance upon a brilliantly colored starfish waiting in a rock pool for the tide to return. Low tides are a good time to marvel at more of the exposed white sands, coral glistening in the sun and mangrove tree trunks and roots, while high tides are great for a sailing trip under the guidance of ocean experts.
You can spend your evenings on the beachfront enjoying drinks as the sun sets and be startled by a chance visit from a bush baby or a genet. You can also spend time with your loved one with a romantic candlelight dinner underneath a carpet of twinkling stars. If you are visiting between the months of June and October, you will have pronounced dry weather. But do be prepared for a light shower sometimes as Mother Nature releases its tearful blessing (read more on when is the best time to go to Bagamoyo).
Whatever the season, the Lazy Lagoon Island is an idyllic end stop from your Tanzania wildlife travels. Do contact AfricanMecca Safaris to create the perfect itinerary for you on your Tanzania bush and beach holiday so you can experience the most of our distinctive country.

Thanks for a fantastic holiday. It was in a great location and only took me 45 seconds to walk from my room to the beach. The bar has amazing views across the ocean. Thanks again for this fabulous introduction to East Africa.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
