Luxury awaits you at the Delta Dunes lodge in Zanzibar. Delta Dunes, “The Wild Place by the Sea,” is a lodge uniquely combining beach, river, and bush that combines its signature “castaway” style with first-class comforts and amenities. Each of the 7 dune cottages are built from driftwood, mangrove poles and thatch and feature large, sunny en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot and cold running water. The marvelous views are never obscured in the completely open cottages. Netting encloses the enormous double beds. Family cottages accommodate 4 people, and each cottage is equipped with a 2-way radio.
Perched on top of miles of rolling rippling sand dunes with fabulous views overlooking the old delta of the Tana River on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other, this is the only wetland of its type in Eastern Africa. Explore this unique combination of beach, river and bush. This phenomenal location teems with incredible bird life; aquatic life and wildlife coupled with endless miles of vast uninhabited beaches.
When you’re ready for replenishment, we offer delicious, freshly caught seafood, ice cold drinks, gourmet breakfasts and warm friendly service. Meals are served al fresco, so you can dine and lounge while perched on top of a sand dune with fabulous 360 degree views. Evening meals are served in the lower, more protected area of the lodge.
Delta Dunes offer opportunities for a wide variety of activities, including boat trips, game and bird-viewing by boat, sundowners, river tubing, local cultural trips, surfing, guided walking safaris, creek fishing, kayaking, sand yachting and water skiing. For those who want extra pampering, spa treatments and massages are also available.
