Hide yourself away for a barefoot romantic or family vacation on the spice island of Zanzibar at the Shooting Star Lodge.

Gaze dreamily at the African sky from the infinity pool and let your mind wander at the endless views of the Indian Ocean on the white powder sandy beach. Recharge your batteries in the shade of luxuriant tropical gardens.

Accommodation at Shooting Star Lodge is built to an extremely high standard in traditional Zanzibari style with white limewashed walls, high beamed ceilings and large windows. All our rooms contain beautifully hand-carved Zanzibari beds draped with tailored mosquito nets, are air-conditioned and also have ceiling fans to complement Kiwengwa’s cool sea breezes.
