Fundu Lagoon is a remote lodge situated on Pemba Island, in the south-west, on the shores of the Wambaa Peninsula. Getting to Fundu Lagoon from Zanzibar is part of the adventure and requires all three modes of transport: planes, taxis and boats. It's quite a fun and scenic trip though, so don't let the distance put you off. On the 30-minute flight to Pemba Airport you'll get fantastic aerial views of Zanzibar and Pemba. The 20-minute taxi drive takes you through lush fruit plantations and thatched villages, where you can smell the rich aroma of cloves drying in the sun. Then it's a 30-minute speedboat trip to the lodge. With all these logistics to consider, you'll begin to understand why prices at Fundu Lagoon are so steep.
The speedboat pulls up at a 200m-long jetty leading to a white beach and a thatched lodge hidden in-between the greenery. As you walk along the spectacular jetty to the lodge you leave behind your known reality and step into an exotic island dream. Well, that's how it feels for us, especially if you arrive just as the sun is about to melt into the ocean.
