For all those who love to flop, there’s another bunch who need to flip. On the surface, Vamizi Island is utterly mellow. Go a few feet below and everything changes, as the Vamizi seas – which lodge residents share with no other tourists at all – are bristling with big ocean action.
Some of the dives here are said to be the best in the world and the deep sea fishing better than the whole East African coast. Fortunately, we have PADI dive instructors, professional fisherfolk, and all the toys and kit you’d want to make the most of this extraordinary marine world.
For the less committed thrill seekers, there are snorkeling trips, castaway picnics, whale watching expeditions and lots of messing about in boats, from kayaks to traditional dhows. Landlubbers may of course prefer to wander the miles of sugar sand untouched beaches, or delve into the bush for a spot of monkey – or bird-watching.
