Community Projects

Mnarani Beach Cottages plays an active role in the community and has the privilege to be able to support the village in many different ways. Since our owner Nassor is personally involved in all activities mentioned on this page, he can make sure 100% of your donations – if you wish to make one – go directly to where it is needed.

Nursery School in Nungwi village

Mnarani Beach Cottages oversees all the maintenance needs of the village pre-school kindergarten. We also occasionally invite the children to visit the hotel and share cultural songs and dances with our guests.

Secondary School in Kidoti village

We support students with high academic achievements from Nungwi and neighboring villages.

University Scholarships

At the moment we are proud to support a number of students from the local villages who have joined the university.

Waste Disposal System

Waste is a large problem in the village due to a growing number of inhabitants and hotels. We have created and are maintaining a waste disposal system that aims to provide a cleaner environment for the inhabitants.

Fresh water

We have been co-operating with a neighboring village to install a freshwater system piped directly to the village. Previously the villagers have had to climb a dangerous path to collect drinking water.


Mnarani Beach Cottages has sponsored several events to promote the Dhow Countries Music Academy. Amongst these is for example the annual URITHI cultural event at the Old Fort (Ngome Kongwe) in Stone Town, Zanzibar. URITHI (Swahili phrase implying Cultural Heritage) is arranged by the Dhow Countries Music Academy of Zanzibar to celebrate and showcase the achievements of the Academic Year.

As part of the festivities our owner, Nassor El Mahruki, hosted a reception for the local arts and culture stakeholders including local representatives from UNESCO, members of the diplomatic community as well as the Zanzibar Government.

Conservation of the Fukuchani ruins

Mnarani Beach Cottages has provided support in the form of providing building materials and connecting with experts to conserve these ruins in the north of Zanzibar.

Road Safety

We maintain road safety signs around Nungwi areas to remind drivers of their safety while driving.
