Live The Dream On Mnemba Island

1st July 2011

You’d think a picture-perfect paradise island, boasting billionaires and beautiful supermodels such as Naomi Campbell would be the stuff of fairy tales – but it really exists, in the form of the private island of Mnemba.

Located off Zanzibar, this idyllic island is home to just one exclusive beach lodge with 10 roomy, thatched beach rooms – perfect for a Tanzanian honeymoon after an safari holiday. It was voted as one of the top three romantic beach destinations by Condé Nast Traveller so that’s proof in the pudding if you need it!

What’s more, Bill Gates, who’s already a regular on Mnemba, was apparently seen back on the island soaking up the sun this week! But, with its sugar-white shores, cool pine forest and unspoiled lagoon brimming with tropical fish to entice him back, who’d blame him?! However at $1,500 per person, per night, perhaps this isn’t one for us mere mortals – unless you get lucky on tonight’s euro millions!
