The warm and helpful service we received without beimg actual guests showed me that Mama Africa and her team must deliver stellar service regularly. Their location and property looks fantastic. The help they gave us was much appreciated and snorkeling near their resort at the Mnemba Atoll was fantastic. Thanks Mama Africa!

Hi Willem Thanks so much for the in depth, lovely review. I will certainly pass on the wonderful comments to the staff. Apologies for the water pressure and salty water situation. Unfortunately the fresh water supplied by the government is not always regular. Look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Sunny Regards Cara
