Tanzania will see the opening of a new private island destination, Thanda Island, in April. The island is located in southern Tanzania’s Shungi Mbili Island Marine Reserve.

Off the grid and solar-powered, Thanda Island will feature an expansive, five-bedroom villa with a swimming pool and a huge indoor aquarium.

The island itself is 20 acres in size, nearly three-quarters of a mile around and almost 400 yards wide. It is surrounded by its own private coral reef, with an exclusive-use zone extending over a half-mile that can be explored with a snorkel and mask straight from the beach.
