Fundu Lagoon is a small privately owned boutique hotel in Pemba offering natural barefoot luxury in a unique Tanzanian setting and reached by plane or boat from Zanzibar. There are eighteen tented safari style bungalows, some on the beach and some on the hill side, but all with breath taking views of the Indian Ocean. Fundu has some of the best diving in the world and was recently voted Best Marine Safari Property in Africa.
This is the Africa that you have been dreaming of, away from the crowds of northern Tanzania where you will enjoy undisturbed game viewing with only a handful of other tourists. People come here for the variety of game viewing experiences, this is classic authentic Africa at its very best.
Not only is the Selous the largest game reserve in Africa, it is also a World Heritage Site, and steeped in history as the second oldest game reserve in the World. Few parks in Tanzania or the rest of Africa can offer the same quality or intensity of grass roots safari as the Selous Game Reserve.
To put the context of the safari experience to you, the Selous is over 45,000 km in size, which is over three times the size of the Serengeti. This equates to a game reserve that is bigger than Switzerland and in this huge space there are very few lodges. This gives you an incredibly special and authentic safari experience, the limited number of lodges in this vast wilderness means very limited tourism, making safaris here spell binding and very special.
This is a wild and rugged area, full of wild animals where you can walk, game-drive and take river safaris. With its rivers, plains and lakes, the Selous is somewhere you get a powerful sense of the scale of the African wilderness. Lots of people call it the crown jewels of Tanzania and it offers a variety of experiences, off roading game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles, boating and walking safaris. The Selous landscape is flat, with a few distant hills on the horizons. The Rufiji and Great Ruaha rivers glide and wind their way through a maze of lakes and swamps, the elegance is mesmerising.
