An East Africa ‘bush and beach’ family safari wouldn’t be complete without a stay at the Manta Resort on Pemba Island. After exhilarating days of waking at the crack of dawn and bumping around the savannah taking in all the fantastic wildlife, we can think of nothing better than enjoying several days in the care of the warm and welcoming Manta family. The best part, whether your family are non-stop adventure seekers or looking for quality idle time at the beach to wrap up your holiday (or a mix of both), Manta offers it all and there is no need to pre-plan activities! Just a few highlights of the fun to be had include:
Idle Time: Refresh and regroup with days on the prettiest beach in Zanzibar, swim in the sea, laze poolside with a cold drink in hand, sail to a sandbar island on a traditional dhow for a picnic or happy hour, enjoy a daily complimentary spa treatment, savor incredibly fresh meals from the talented and creative chefs, and enjoy the local vibes!
Adventure Seekers: Activities abound for active families including snorkeling for conservation, diving (what a spot to for your child’s first exploratory dive or to be PADI certified!), kayaking, fishing, rainforest hike complete with a natural tree swing…to name a few!
Accommodations: Depending on the family make-up, we suggest the superior garden rooms or a sea-front villa. For an added wow-factor (and only for children over 12 years) include a night in the famed underwater room!
Added fun: Kids will love spotting the resident bush babies and endemic Pemba Flying Foxes! In addition, the incredible staff at Manta welcome guests with genuine warmth, don’t be surprised if your family is invited to a pick-up soccer game or visit to the local school.
The Manta Resort is a memory maker without any effort at all! As a bonus, Manta offers incredible ‘stay 5 pay 4’ and stay 8 pay 6’ specials as well as great children’s pricing (please note minimum age for children at the resort is 7 years and 12 years to stay in the underwater room). Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information or to check availability!
