Fanjove Island is a coral island in Songosongo ward in Kilwa District of Lindi Region in Tanzania's Indian ocean coast.
The island is a geographically part of the Songosongo Islands archipelago which is composed of 22 reefs and 4 islands. The other three islands are Songo Songo, Nyuni Island and Okuza Island.
Intact coral reef spans for miles; the prolific wildlife includes spinner dolphin, green turtles and humpback whales.
On Fanjove, time seems to have no pull, and guests feel privileged to alight upon this pristine island – an unadulterated paradise, still very much as nature intended.
Only the 19th century lighthouse and some architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous occupation by anything other than wildlife - evoking thoughts of historical discovery, desert island life and adventure.
