General Information

Stroll along the powdery white sands of Kiwengwa Beach or immerse yourself in the balmy waters of the Indian Ocean when the tide is high. Alternatively, venture out across the coral reef to explore the marine life amongst its tidal pools. Or, simply laze on your veranda listening to the lively melodies of children singing as they gather cockles and mussels in the shallows.

Accommodation at Shooting Star Lodge is built to a high standard in traditional Zanzibari style with white lime-washed walls, high beamed ceilings and large windows. The villas and sea view cottages all contain beautifully hand-carved Zanzibari beds draped with tailored mosquito nets. All rooms are air-conditioned and also have ceiling fans to complement Kiwengwa’s cool sea breezes.

Shooting Star Lodge is well located for exploring the local village Kiwengwa on foot or by bicycle. Each morning you will be able to witness the women heading off to collect seaweed as the fishermen return with their catch. This is busy village life as it’s been for many years. Kiwengwa also provides a good opportunity to shop for trinkets, carvings and brightly coloured, wrap-around cotton sarongs or “kangas” at the local bazaar.


Shooting Star Lodge is located at Kiwengwa Beach.
