One of Zanzibar's most stunning, secluded, and unique tidal beaches, Upendo Beach, can be found in Michamvi (on the country's southeast coast). A one-of-a-kind boutique hotel that delicately combines private villas with a social restaurant, bar, and pool area while promoting sustainability and conservation ideas at its core. A brand that transcends hotels and restaurants, it aims to empower and develop the island while keeping its authenticity. The Upendo Experience provides pure leisure, privacy, and comfort while living in harmony with local communities and the environment. You may relax on the South East coast's magnificent white sand beaches or visit the historic UNESCO city of Stone Town.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
