DAHONI ZANZIBAR - your beach home in Africa

DAHONI ZANZIBAR is a beautiful, private villa for you and your family if what you need is:

- White beach & bay & blue ocean,

- Serenity and quiet rest,

- No tourists crowds,

- Big, light in colour (paints and deco) house surronded by tropical palms.

DAHONI ZANZIBAR is situated in a quiet village.
The house is situated on huge plot of tropical garden, in a distance of 20 meters from the ocean and white, sandy beach.
You will find here two spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms that can accomodate 5 Guests (up to 7 on special and time ahead request), a living&dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. Outside - a big terrace with elegant sets of sofas and a tower with a seaview – you can relax and/or have a meal there. In front we have whitesand area with luxury sunbeds.

DAHONI ZANZIBAR consists of:
- 100 m2 of a living & dining room. A small public toilet adjoins to it.
- 26 m2 of a double/twin CHILLI ROOM.
We can put an extra bed there making it easily a triple room. CHILLI ROOM is adjoined by a 6 m2 bathroom with a shower and a toilet.
- 43 m2 of the MALACHITE ROOM.
You can use it as a double, a triple and a quadruple room. It is a very big and guiet room. It is adjoined by a long, 13 m2 bathroom with a shower/bath.
- 16 m2 of big, fully equipped kitchen.

I believe we have the biggest king matteraces on the island - 240 cm wide and 200 cm long - which may be easily turned into single ones - 120 cm x 200 cm.
We change then one big mattress into two singles.

DAHONI ZANZIBAR is a perfect house for people on wheelchairs - it got flat, open outside and inside house spaces.

Pongwe is a quiet, fisherman village. If you really need to relax and rest, this is a place for you.
On our left handside/close to MALACHITE ROOM we have a Santa Maria Hotel where you may have your lunches and dinners. Pongwe got a few hotels with good food which I will recommend to you after booking DAHONI ZANZIBAR.
On our right handside/close to CHILLI ROOM we have BushBaby Bar – with chill, nice music on weekdays. On Saturday afternoon/after 3pm village families come to enjoy weekend time and the place becomes loud. Some Saturdays you may expect musicloud evening hours - we will know this in advance and we suggest you to take tour to town or leave for the evening time or dinner to Kiwengwa.
Those rare days the music is really loud till midnight. As we are visitors to Zanzibarian people and its island I respect their free time and place that gives them some entertainment during Saturday evening.

I have been in Africa for 25 years, living on Zanzibar for last 7 years.
I am an african safaris specialist/travel agent and a bushlover.
I have been taking care of my safari Guests for 20 years now, so let me make your Zanzibarian holiday an exceptional adventure!

My zanzibarian team will support you with all the issues while staying at DAHONI ZANZIBAR.
Every morning our assistant manager, Hassan and housekeeper, Hadija will come to clean the house and the plot as well as to assist you with any issues.
We will help you with daily breakfast or lunch shopping. You may ask Hassan (at extra delivery & products cost) to buy any products from what is available in the nearby shops.
If you want to book your transfers, tours or rent a car – pls do not hesitate to ask. My drivers, Hamisi and Muba will stay at your disposal.
I will come to greet you and willingly will chat on safari and life issues being on the island.
While I am away from Zanzibar, busy in the bush for 3 months of the year, my team will take a good care of you.
DAHONI ZANZIBAR got its strong wifi signal of course, but you have to find proper place for your mobile reach cover.
