This southeast corner of Zanzibar
has not historically been one of the more popular places to visit, primarily due to its open and relatively less attractive scenery, as well as its lack of good beaches.
The area is centred on the traditional village of Makunduchi
, set in a fertile pocket some distance inland. The village has a coastal extension of the same name, a sleepy and anonymous place with a couple of rather low key lodges.
The coast to the south of the village and all around the southern tip of the island features a high coral cliff with virtually no beaches and a rather featureless hinterland.
To the north of the village the scenery is similar, but with an increasing number of coves and small beaches as one approaches the classic sandy lagoon of Jambiani
We have no recommended lodges in this area.
