Zanzibar Archipelago | Tanzania

Mnemba Island

&Beyond Mnemba Island is an award-winning barefoot beach paradise just off the northeast coast of Zanzibar. Be among just 20 guests at this romantic, private hideaway, where ten beachside bandas overlook the Mnemba atoll (a scuba diver’s delight).

From snorkelling, swimming and kayaking, to massages on the beach, to doing nothing at all, Mnemba has something for everyone.

If you have ever harboured the secret wish of finding yourself the sole inhabitant of a beautiful tropical island, but without the effort of having to lift a finger to fend for yourself, &Beyond Mnemba Island is just the place for you! Discover sheer, unpretentious paradise on this private island, where the simple pleasures become your most treasured of memories for many years to come. Relax and unwind in the exclusivity of your own stretch of beachfront, where simple yet luxurious bandas peep out onto unblemished sands from the dappled shade of the casuarina pine forest.

Time your visit with Tanzania's seasons

Tanzania is another country that is fantastic to visit year round, with every month offering something unique, however certain areas do become harder to access at certain times of year. As a general rule, Tanzania follows a typical East African climate, with the two 'dry seasons' and two 'green seasons'. A quick overview would look like this. Dry: June-October & December-February. Green: March-May & November.

The Great Wildebeest and Zebra Migration is constantly moving through the Serengeti so no matter when you visit, if you are hoping to see the migration you'll be in luck.

From March through to the end of May the 'long-rains' fall across Tanzania, while in November the 'short-rains' arrive. While on the outlook this seems rather daunting, many camps remain open during these months and visitors are rewarded for their bravery. Although you can be unlucky and be rained on a couple of days in a row, the typical weather pattern is for big storm clouds to build up during the day (a spectacular sight) which then breaks in a torrential downpour over the course of about half an hour. The sun then comes back out and dries everything out within moments. The Ruaha in the south is a notable exception where the dry season tends to start a little earlier towards April.

From June to late October the skies clear and there are glorious long days of dry weather. These are typically the busiest months in Tanzania as a result of the migration heading into full swing. Rates are often a lot higher during these months and availability for space can be tough to come by.

In January and February the skies are clear again after the 'short-rains'. This is a great season to go if you are keen to avoid busy National Parks and beaches.
