Thanda Island is a solely exclusive bookable luxury island resort in the Shungi Mbili island marine reserve at the coast of Tanzania. The private island is the new, for guests accessible beach residence of the Swedish philanthropy and investor couple Christin and Dan Olofsson. It offers high levels of privacy for friends and family in a large villa with five suites for up to ten adults and nine children. Among the highlights are water-sport activities such as diving with whale sharks and sea cows or snorkeling in the private coral reef as well as visits to the close-by Mafia Island. As part of the sustainable tourism company Thanda, Thanda Island organizes in cooperation with the Tanzanian marine protection authority as well as the leading nonprofit organization Sea Sense significant sustainability, research and community projects.
