Head to Wimbi Beach and carry on down the dirt road for 2 km, take the left fork and find us 200 m further down – you’ve made it! Call us when you arrive and we might be able to arrange a lift or hop in a taxi, just ask for “campismo” or Russel’s Place.

How it all began
When Russel Bott passed by Pemba in 1997 he thought as most of us do that he had found a magic place, but unlike what most of us do, he decided to stay and bought a piece of land full of cashew trees near the beach. The construction of Pemba Magic Lodge began in 1998. It started out as a campsite with a few tents and a dormitory for backpackers, and was soon to become a fovourite hang around place “the blackfooted bar”

In time the construction of the bungalows began all individually designed by Russel Bott and all using as much local products as possible. Today the place has several bungalows, a large restaurant and bar.
Pemba Magic Lodge was long known as “Russel’s Place or simply “The Campsite”, but since 2008 the place started using it’s original name “Pemba Magic Lodge”
