How They Dazzle Us

If you have ever dreamed of winning the lottery and buying yourself a private island then this Landing is for you. It started as a dream to find a small, remote, uninhabited Tropical Island off the coast of Africa. Slowly but surely, it has been turned into one of the world’s most exclusive island getaways, a paradise that affords you complete privacy with family and friends. Thanda Island is nestled within a marine reserve and it boasts a single luxurious villa and two traditional beach chalets. It is quite magical.

Why We Love Them

The island might be tiny but the opportunities and experiences that are available are diverse and plenty. You can swim with the gentle whale shark an amazing experience that puts into perspective or overall scale in eth universe. You can dive in the largest marine protected reserve in the Indian Ocean or ride the trade winds on a traditional Arab dhow. Take a trip on an antique, 1930s cruise yacht or indulge your taste buds with a Swahili or Arabian feast. It is as romantic as it is pristine and as private as it is invigorating.

Their Sustainable Superpower

This Landing works on multiple fronts to preserve and protect the environment and to educate the local people. Among the activities and initiatives pioneered by the team are projects involving the region’s sea turtles, dugongs and whale sharks, as well as the preservation and rehabilitation of the Shungimbili Coral Reef. The island provides a base from which Marine Park Rangers patrol to stop illegal fishing. Thanda Island is deeply committed to the education and wellbeing of the young people on Mafia, including programmes on sustainable fishing and marine conservation.
