Welcome to Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar

red monkey lodge from the beach

Red Monkey Lodge is a cozy small beach lodge with just 12 rooms, restaurant and bar, located in Jambiani on the wonderful southeast coast of Zanzibar.

Mass tourism has not spoilt the original atmosphere and there are plenty of activities which can be done from here (diving zanzibar, kite boarding, bike tours, deep sea fishing…check our activity page.

The Red Monkey Lodge is the realisation of a life time dream and intends to be a non pretentious and laid back location for holidays, while offering high level service to spoil our guests. Keywords are: barefoot, informal, cozy, watersports and great food & drinks.

We love guests who have genuine interest for their environment and the local culture.

Completely restructured in autumn of 2010 (and again refurbished in May 2013), this cosy lodge is positioned right on the sandy beach next to a small tropical forest which is home of the Red Colobus monkeys, that give the name to the lodge and often visit us.

In front of Red Monkey Lodge there is a 2 kilometre long sandbank that reaches from the beach far out into the water, and about 2 km away from shore there is the barrier reef.

The Lodge consists of 9 one-storey bungalows (12 rooms) with traditional Makuti (palm tree) roofing , a seaview restaurant, our seaview bar, a reading lounge with book exchange, kite boarding centre and a beachfront chill out area with sun beds and umbrellas.

The pathways between the small tropical garden with – among other plants – Aloe Vera, Lemongrass, Papaya, Banana and Palm trees, are covered with sand, allowing our guests to live a real‚ barefoot experience’.

The Red Monkey Lodge wants to be an antithesis to mass tourism by being an integral part of the village, community and local culture.
