Location: Chumbe is a small forested island just a few kilometres to the south of Zanzibar Stone town. It is at the center of a small marine conservation area and is the site of a small and exclusive lodge. Chumbe Island accommodation is based on the state-of-the-art of eco-architecture and eco-technology.
Accommodation: Chumbe Island Lodge consists of 7 reasonably well spaced bungalows or bandas designed for a maximum of around 14 guests so that the island never gets crowded. All the bungalows overlook the see and are equipped with double or twin beds in the sleeping area under the palm thatched roof, self-contained bathrooms with hot & cold shower, comfortable hammocks, large living rooms, furnished with handmade furniture and decorated with African art and colourful fabrics.
Facilities & Services: Dining is under the impressive roof of the visitor’s centre, which overlooks the sea between Zanzibar and mainland Tanzania. The lodge chefs provide an abundant supply of delicious dishes that are a mixture of Zanzibarian, Arabic, Indian and African tastes and satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, guided walks through the forest trails and inter-tidal areas if low tide.
