After over fifteen years in the hospitality industry of which the last ten spent in East Africa, i finally decided to open my own place, since december 2012, my partner in life has joined me in this project and manages the daily running of the lodge while i focus on the administrative and marketing tasks.
Red Monkey lodge is a cozy small beach lodge with only 12 rooms, beach bed area, hammocks, reading corner with book exchange, seaview restaurant and bar, located in Jambiani on the wonderful south east coast of Zanzibar.
This area is our favourite as mass tourism has not spoilt the original atmosphere and plenty of activities can be done from here (diving, kite boarding, bike tours, deep sea fishing…check our activity page)
The Red Monkey Lodge wants to be an antithesis to mass tourism by being integrated with the village of which we are part, rather than offering a golden cage for tourists .
If you re looking for plasma screens, animation programs and a beach reserved to tourists only, this will not be the right place for you!
