We thought they were only to be found on Chumbe Island and Kwale Island but...we found a COCONUT CRAB close to villa 7 in our own lodge.
The sea is absolutely beautiful these months. With the wind coming from the North, Menai Bay is shielded. This means flat seas, very clear water of a stunning colour and with nice temperature. Yesterday around 17.00 pm with high tide, we found all our guests swimming in the sea. Lovely!
Unguja Lodge manages well with the Zanzibar electricity problem. So far guests have noticed hardly anything. We run our big gemerator during the day from 07.00-23.00h and only switch if off from 11.00-12.00 and from 16.00-18.00h. At these times most guests are out (on the beach) or at the pool. During the night (23.00-07.00h) we run a smaller generator so our guests can use light and fans in the villas.
