property overview

One of the world’s truly exclusive islands, Thanda Island features one private villa to enjoy in complete seclusion.

Set in Tanzania’s Shungimbili Island Marine Reserve and surrounded by its own coral reef, Thanda Island is one of the truly exclusive tropical islands in the world. Eight hectares in size, one kilometer in circumference and 350 meters wide, the Island features only one private villa with five suites and two rustic Tanzanian Bandas and is a sanctuary to enjoy in complete seclusion with family and friends. Depending on the season, guests can swim with the gentlest giant of the ocean, the whale shark, and may watch turtles nesting and their eggs hatching. Marine conservation is at the core of the Island’s offering and guests are encouraged to get involved in a range of projects, such as marine wildlife monitoring or awareness workshops with villagers on neighboring Mafia Island. On the Island, guests can rejuvenate and enjoy a variety of water sports or island activities as they explore this remarkable destination, where shades of turquoise infuse the days and tropical spices the nights.

"Community Upliftment, Conservation and Sustainability are Part of Thanda Island’s DNA "

 

Thanda Island has a far-reaching commitment to the Tanzanian people and participates in a range of social upliftment programs in the rural communities. A priority is the education of young people concerning sustainable resource utilization and fish harvesting, marine conservation and the development of sporting activities. Thanda’s community partner, Sea Sense, works closely with the coastal communities to protect endangered marine species. Thanda is deeply committed to the conservation of the region’s sea turtles, dugongs, dolphins, whale sharks and the rehabilitation of the coral reef. The Island is powered by solar energy, while rainwater tanks maximize water storage and use of this precious natural resource. An on-site desalination plant provides water for the entire Island, whilst grey water is recycled for the rehabilitation of the Island's vegetation.
