Red Monkey Lodge is a cozy small beach lodge with only 12 rooms, restaurant and bar, located in Jambiani on the wonderful southeast coast of Zanzibar.
This area is my favourite, as mass tourism has not spoilt the original atmosphere and plenty of activities can be done from here (diving zanzibar, kite boarding, bike tours, deep sea fishing…check our activity page).
The Red Monkey Lodge is the realisation of a life time dream and intends to be a non pretentious and laid back location for holidays, while offering high level service to spoil our guests. Keywords are: barefoot, informal, cozy, watersports and great food & drinks.
We do not offer animation programs nor plasma screens in the rooms and prefer guests that have genuine interest for their environment and the local culture.
The manager of the Red Monkey is a certified dive instructor with hundreds of dives around east Africa and he will be happy to suggest itineraries to you according to conditions and your level of experience.
The reef in front of the Red Monkey hosts some of east Africa’s finest corals and you can dive on slopes, walls and overhangs. The lagoon inside the reef is an ideal spot for snorkeling and beginners. The shallow lagoon in the inside reef is perfect for beginners and snorkelers and a great spot for night diving.
In the ideal seasons (February-April / September – December) you may find visibility of up to 40m, and even in the more windy season it is seldom less than 15m. Water temperatures are between 26 and 28 degrees celsius.
Enquire for daily double dives, single and night dives to the best sites around the island. Beginner to advanced courses can be arranged with our partner diving school, whose staff can, according to the tides, pick up and/or offload on the beach in front of the lodge.
Ask us for special dive excursions on the east coast and north, or multi-day trips to Mafia and Pemba
