Barefoot and Lazy

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 just 12 rooms, beach bed area, hammocks, reading corner with book exchange and seaview restaurant and bar, located in Jambiani, on the wonderful south east coast of Zanzibar.

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