A private island in the Indian Ocean will be available for holidaymakers to hire from April 2016, and we are proud to be able to offer our customers this amazing island.

Thanda Island is within southern Tanzania’s Shungi Mbili Island Marine Resort.

The island is solar powered and has a five-bedroom villa with a glass-sided pool, indoor aquarium, sailing boats and kayaks.

Thanda Island is just 0.7 miles in circumference and surrounded by a coral reef, beyond which whale sharks can be seen.

The cost of the little gem starts at US$10,000 a night, plus flights and transfers.

Should this retreat be your ideal place to stay, please contact Paul at WOT Travel with your requirements. We can the arrange a bespoke, ATOL-protected, package, designed to your specific needs.
