Imagine a private island in the Indian Ocean, the waves lapping the white sandy beach just metres from your bed. The day stretches ahead with promises of sun, snorkeling and mangrove exploration, just interrupted by freshly prepared meals.

When to visit

Lazy Lagoon is open all year around.  Southern Tanzania has a 6 month dry season between the months of June to November, but the Coastal area does attract some rain showers throughout the year, so it is not quite so predictable. June/July is the cooler time of year and temperatures increase through the proceeding months until November when the main rains break.



Foxes Safari Camps are heavily committed to working with communities in Tanzania and operate an NGO – Foxes Community and Wildlife Trust which runs health, education, social and childcare projects.  For more information go to
