Mchanga beach lodge is in the Kwengwa area of Zanzibar, on the northwest coast. A pleasant, affordable lodge, Mchanga enjoys a beautiful beachside location and seafront views.

This small and simple lodge set on a stretch of beautiful white sand, has a large restaurant, pool and bar area and friendly spa. In a position of seclusion and serenity this is an ideal retreat for those looking to unwind after a safari or simply get away from the daily grind.

With the focus being on relaxing, there are not many activities available at the hotel itself. However, guests can borrow both snorkelling equipment and bikes from the hotel during their stay and a volleyball net is erected on the beach. Tours and excursions around the island can be organised including to some popular diving spots.

An intimate lodge, Mchanga has only 10 rooms split into sea and garden view. Basic, but homely and clean, the rooms are large with white washed walls and brilliant views. All the rooms have private terraces and ensuite toilet and bathrooms, although the garden rooms are slightly larger to make up for the slightly less impressive views.

Mchanga Beach lodge welcomes children over the age of eight, however there are no organised programmes to keep children entertained. Nevertheless, there is both an adults and a kid’s pool and the lovely beach that should be enough to keep older, more mature children occupied for the duration of your stay. Families of up to four can be accommodated together and babysitting services can also be organised on request.

This is an unpretentious lodge that provides good value and a stunning setting. For those looking for a pristine beach holiday at a reasonable price, this is an excellent choice.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
