Thanda Island Cruise

One of the most popular island excursions is the Chole Island Tour. We partner with our agents on nearby Chole Island who lead our guests on this community-based and historical journey to the east side of Mafia Island. Weather permitting, the journey from Thanda Island takes about an hour and includes an experience of a traditional Arab dhow: the sea-going vessel used along this coastline for thousands of years..

Thanda Island Bird Walk

An interesting activity is the Thanda Island Bird Walk, where you head through the bush behind the Villa and onto a white-sand trail to visit the white, grey and black Egrets that inhabit our private island. Thanda Island is an ideal home for them, with excellent fish, and they manage to hatch a great number of their delicate baby-blue eggs. At different times of the year you can watch them interacting with each other and with their young.
