Beach & Forest Resort

At Zinkwazi we try to let you experience the magic of our unique environment as closely as possible. You are constantly surrounded by the amazing bird song of the tropical forest, the tranquility of a great variety of palms along the calm waters of the magnificent lagoon, the constant roar of the Indian Ocean surf in the background. Our balmy, subtropical climate encourages an open air, 'alfresco' lifestyle.


This theme is carried over in the design of our accommodation, with an emphasis on natural and African materials, reflecting the colours and moods of our environment. All 26 rooms and suites are scattered in the extensive grounds amongst tropical trees and palms. Many have lovely lagoon views. All rooms come with double or twin beds and 17 have en-suite bathrooms. They are equipped with ceiling fans, TV's and covered patios, and are designed to maximise the outdoor experience. Our private suites and family lodges also have their own lounges and at least 2 en-suite bedrooms.

Bed & Breakfast and Full Board options are available on site. All meals are served a la carte at the Raffia dining room or by choice on the open sundeck. Special function menus are a regular feature. Our coastal African setting is also reflected in our delicious cuisine. We specialise in fresh fish dishes and spicy local curries. Special theme evenings are organised in the tropical Boma, surrounded by palms, whilst sundowners are enjoyed at the elevated Isifonya Pub & Sundeck, overlooking a wetland and the lagoon.
