Beautiful and peaceful place in the more quiet area of Nungwi. The more touristic and lively area is at walking distance. There is a nice pool with view over the ocean. The hosts are very friendly and make great food. At low tide you can walk to a nice sandbank that you might enjoy all by yourself! We absolutely enjoyed our stay

Three reason why yous could stay at the game fish lodge:1. you’re close to the highlife in nungwi. only 20 min beach walk or 30 min throuh the little villages. Both ways are worth it.2. you have absolutely privacy in the lodge and on the beach side. you have an private access to the Ozean and the beach and you’re almost for yourself.3. you stay with Lesley and Collin. The owner of the Lodge make this stay unforgettable. These two make our time there like we’re visiting friends. they had a lot of insider Tipps to share, were always friendly and kind. it was an absolut great experience and the best welcome to Sansibar.

We stayed here for our honeymoon for 3nights and all I can say is that those were the most memorable.Leslie and colin were the most accommodating hosts ever. The breakfast is great and the dinner was just lovely, best meal ever.The beach was just fascinating and the amount of privacy is incredible.Will definitely return and stay longer.Anas&hiba

If you like a quick place, this is the place to be. 😊The food is excellent👌. Best fresh fish and the breakfast is awesome as well.👌👍 Lesly and Collin are so beautiful people. It is fantastic.😘 By the way, of course sometimes power cuts during the day but this is normal in Africa.👀💪 Also the internet is ok for the island Zanzibar. Of course maybe not good enough for homeoffice workers, streaming or youtube freaks... But guys, please... who will use that sh... , if you have the chance to see this awesome view and enjoy the quiet of the island 😉😘 For sure i will cone back. 🤗🤗🤗Best regards Bjoern

Perfect place to run away from reality! I have stayed here for 15 nights (I wish I could have more). The place is very nice and quiet. There is a big yard with a pool where you can enjoy the hot weather and the stunning sea view. The rooms were spacious, very clean, with private bathroom, AC, Wifi, everything. Just open the window at night and you can enjoy the sound of the waves. Also you can pop up on the balcony in the mornings and you can watch the sunrise from a perfect spot.Another and most important thing that makes this place wonderful were the owners. They are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice. Amazing and friendly. They were always around and available to handle everything a guest could request.There is so much more to say but for now I will say a big YES for this place! Definitely recommend this place 10/10 *P.S. I will never forget the taste of the mango and banana pancakes and the variety of the omelettes for breakfast.

❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌The cancelled 6days for arrival.We think they find clients for peak season (New Years eve) where payed more than us.Ad communication and unfriendly.Don’t book with them there are so many hotels in Nungwi.

We had a great time at Game fish lodge. It is the perfect place if you are looking for an accommodation with a family spirit. The view is stunning ! Thanks a lot for the lovely breakfast, all the tips provided and your excellent vibe. The main downside was that the internet connection.

When I was choosing this hotel with my partner, we knew it would be something special and it really was. As soon as we arrived at the Gamefish Lodge, Leslie greeted us with a warm smile and she said she would take care of us until the end of our stay. At Zanzibar, we tried an expensive 4 * hotel, but it can hardly match our fantastic experience of gamefish lodge. You really get what you see in the photos. Gamefish lodge is one of a few places where the description says a sea view and you really get it. The land is huge, but Colins accommodation capacity is limited to give each guest maximum comfort. This place is not for business, this place is for joy. Unlike the surrounding hotels, where you look into the windows of other guests, in Gamefish Lodge you wake up in the morning with the stunning sunrise. Colin and Leslie are some of the nicest people Ive ever met. Their philosophy of life is amazing, so I recommend opening a glass of wine one evening and talking to them. If youve ever read the book A Monk Who Sold His Ferarri by Robin Sharma, its about Colin. Breakfasts are phenomenal, dinners are even better. Colin knows how to cook fish like no other. I recommend GameFish lodge to anyone who will read this review. This is not just a hotel - this is an experience. We have already travelled a large part of the world, and never visit the same place twice, but we will definitely return here. Leslie and Colin, we wish you a lot of success and thank you for your outstanding Zanzibar experience. We will definitely meet again. David and Marketa - Czechia. :)

I cannot describe how incredible holiday did Lesley and Colin prepare for us. Incredible food, best fish steaks I ever had, amazing portions - full dinner for 20 USD. The breakfast included in the price has several courses and a fresh juice! They just finished a great swimming pool in case the tide makes it harder to swim, which is not often. They arranged some fantastic trips at a great price for us - we did the spice tour, prison island trip and a Stone Town visit - and swimming with the sea turtles which is around the corner. The rooms are basic and have everything that you need - including a mini bar. I am allergic to dogs so I was a bit afraid to come to a place with three dogs - and I had absolutely no problem, these are the best behaving dogs I have ever met, well trained. Colin pays for a (trusted) taxi when you want to go to another beach or just have a dinner or drink in the village. All in all it is inspiring to see two people do this job not for money, but because they love it. Thank you!!

Game Fish Lodge is the perfect place to relax for a few days (or more). Its a large, beautiful property with only 5 rooms, so its very private and peaceful. The rooms are clean, it has a pool and beach access, home cooked meals, and hammocks/daybeds scattered around the property. The beach isnt the best for swimming, but its beautiful to walk on. For swimming or more restaurants/bars, you can easily walk or take a 10 minute taxi to Nungwi or Kendwa.GFL is run by a couple Lesley and Colin who are incredible hosts and treat you like family. They cook huge, delicious breakfasts every morning (try r Spanish omlette), cook incredible dinners for $20 every few days, and are happy to provide recommendations to help you enjoy the island. If youre looking for a place to party or fancy resort, Id recommend somewhere else, but for me, this is the best place to stay in Zanzibar.

The place is beautiful. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. The meals they serve in the evenings are delicious and lavish. I strongly recommend

Review №13

This is the perfect place if you just want to relax Island style and enjoy the beauty North Zanzibar has to offer. Book a game fishing trip for a true fishing experience, its an awesome adventure. Many nearby attractions.

Review №14

I was disappointed with this stay, would not recommend. Collin who is the owner made us feel very unwelcome and is very aggressive in his manner. Really ruined the last leg of the trip.

Review №15

Review №18

Just nothing going on

Review №19

Beautiful, very cozy, secluded and quiet place!!! The rooms are cabins for 2 people. Every home has an ocean view! Your own private beach and pool with panoramic ocean views! Very good breakfast, hearty and tasty!The hosts made us feel at home! They left like their parents! Very pleasant and caring! Who loves a private vacation without noise, where only you and the ocean - you are here!

This is the best place in Zanzibar. Lovely fresh European style rooms, pool overlooking the ocean. Ocean view from the room. Super delicious breakfasts. The highlight of all this delight is the owners of this place. I already want to go back

Review №21

The owners are super nice and put us in the right mood!A breakfast with more than one lying down (advice to the big eaters)!Chill atmosphere, dont expect to be crowded there are only 6 rooms. We had the chance to meet great people with whom we shared our activities! 😎👌Leslie and Collins (the owners) do not hesitate to be of good advice and we should have listened to them for the snorkeling in mwenba to be avoided, all the marine wealth of this island has unfortunately disappeared due to mass tourismA wonderful stay in their company thank you thank you thank you 1000 times!

Review №22

A wonderful place, an oasis of peace and quiet. Wonderful owners, nice, helpful. Excellent breakfast and even better dinner. Family atmosphere, well-being and smile

Review №23

Very cool, peaceful place! Absolutely deserted beach, there are no Maasai or endless vendors like Kendwa and Nungwi beaches. Very tasty and hearty breakfasts, such a breakfast lasts up to 4 hours. I divided it into 2 parts and ate in 2 approaches) The rooms have air conditioning and windows, which is rare in these parts. The atmosphere seems to have come to visit friends)Of the minuses is bad internet, but this is solved by buying your own SIM card.

Super host very nice I counter this accommodation

Review №25

The owners of this place are South African expats Leslie and Colin. They will not perceive you as tourists, but as their guests. So dont even think about where to stay in Nungwi. Clean, beautiful, without noise and crowds of tourists. Relaxing on the beach should be just that.

Review №26

Lovely staffMagical viewBig roomLow tide in the morning and high tide in the afternoon

Review №27

The place is very wonderful, great, pleasant and very welcoming hosts !!! One bad thing is the entrance ie there is no road at all.
