- Excellent diving centre
- One of the best adventure beach locations
- Access to the beautiful Mesali Island
Fundu Lagoon is an idyllic, boutique hotel on the island of Pemba, part of the Zanzibar archipelago. Offering some of the finest coral reef diving and snorkelling in the world, this is the height of barefoot beach luxury.
This remote, all-inclusive lodge can only be accessed by boat and is set on a beautiful, private beach. The communal areas include an impressive infinity pool and a jetty with an open air bar in addition to another two bars in the resort. Meals are inspired by fine local produce and served in a variety of locations: on the jetty, the beach, on Mesali Island – or in the restaurant.
Sandy paths and wooden walkways lead to 18 thatched, tented rooms and suites, all built on stilts, with fabulous ocean views. There are eight hillside rooms and four beachfront rooms. Two very stylish suites have plunge pools, extended sundecks and indoor and outdoor seating areas. The four superior suites are especially spacious.
A range of activities are available at Fundu Lagoon. Within the resort, a spa and yoga platform overlooking the ocean cater to all your relaxation needs. Down by the beach Fundu’s dive centre is a PADI 5- star Golden Palm resort, with three dive instructors and a dive master to enable you to discover the beauty of the lagoon. Sailing trips can be arranged to the nearby marine sanctuary at Mesali island and to the fabulous coral reefs. Other activities include fishing, kayaking, village walks and island excursions.
Fundu Lagoon has both stunning beaches and diverse activities making it extremely hard to beat as an ideal beach retreat. A popular choice for couples, children over 12 are also welcome at this lodge.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
