Pongwe is a casual but refined beach lodge on the east coast of the island, set in pleasant grounds and bordering a lovely sandy beach and the Indian Ocean. The food is very good, serving a blend of seafood, local dishes and international fare. The infinity pool, with pleasant deck, is a great spot to enjoy a cool drink and enjoy the view. Pongwe Beach is lucky in the fact that the whole beach is protected by an offshore reef which keeps the inner waters calm and safe for all to swim in. Snorkelling and boat trips can also be arranged to the reef, kayaks & paddle board, and bicycles are available. As with many Zanzibar beaches the area is tidal.

The 20 rooms at Pongwe are all built in traditional Zanzibari style with a thatched roof (with the leaves sourced from their own beach), white-washed walls, walk-in shower and handcrafted local furniture. Each of the rooms has a private terrace. For the more practical the rooms all have; mosquito nets, eco-friendly ceiling fans, beach & bath towels. There are 3 room types which are spread across the property and which are suitable for different budgets, some of which can be used as family rooms. There are: 4 Seaview Suites, each with a plunge pool; 13 Beachfront Rooms, just a step away from the beach; and 3 Garden View Rooms, just 30 seconds walk to the beach.

Map and Highlights

South Africa
VISAS:
When visiting South Africa for a period of up to 90 days, travellers from the UK and most (not all) visitors from the European Union do not require a visa. Visitors who intend to work in South Africa must apply for a work permit abroad at the South African Consulate or Embassy. Before departing for South Africa, check with the nearest South African Consulate or Embassy for any possible changes regarding the visa requirements. Technically, your passport should be valid for at least 30 days beyond your intended date of exit from South Africa, in line with South African immigration regulations. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport should have at least 6 months validity on the date of entry to South Africa. To avoid problems at the airport on arrival, you’re advised to ensure your passport meets this requirement. Your passport should have at least 2 blank pages if you require a visa to enter the country. If you do not need a visa, one blank page will be sufficient.  
Zanzibar, Tanzania
VISAS & ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:
Valid passports for at least 6 months are required by all foreign nationals to enter Tanzania (Zanzibar). Citizens of the Commonwealth do require a visa to enter Tanzania and can be purchased on arrival. They can be purchased before travel or on arrival, £38 per single-entry (prices are for application at high commission in London). US visas: US$50 (single or double-entry, six months). Business visa fees: £38 single entry valid for 2 months; Multiple entry 6 months £80 and 12 months £100 (multiple entry permits holder a maximum of two months' stay in Tanzania per visit). We do recommend that you obtain your visa before travel. All air arrivals must be in possession of a valid return ticket and must be able to prove that they have sufficient funds to cover their stay in the country. Effective from 01 July 2015 Zanzibar has introduced an Infrastructure Tax & Levy which will affect all visitors to Zanzibar. Infrastructure Levy: US$ 1 per person per night to be paid direct by guest at their hotel in Zanzibar. Infrastructure Tax: TZS 2000 (approx. US$ 1) per person to be paid direct by the passenger on departure at the airports/seaports in Zanzibar to any destination within the United Republic of Tanzania (domestic - e.g. to Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Selous etc.).
