Fanjove Private Island

Fanjove is a small island (appr 1 kilometre long) off the Tanzanian coast, belonging to the Mafia Archipelago. Between 2012 and 2014, the Essential Destinations eco lodge of six bandas (bungalows) and central facilities was built. The bandas are A-framed tent structures, covered with makuti, palm leaves. The bandas all face the ocean and are provided with a raised belvedere platform.

In 2016, directions for further development are explored: a new dining and lounge area, restoration of the old lighthouse and general landscaping.
