We stayed one night on Chumbe as part of our 5th wedding anniversary trip to Zanzibar. If you'd like to get away from the tourists and have the island almost to yourself, an overnight is highly recommended (despite the hefty sum you'll have to shell out). The handsome eco-bungalows are comfortable, tastefully appointed, and private. Right nearby one can go... More

We visited Chumbe as a day trip from Stone Town. It is absolutely beautiful. There is a very warm welcome from the staff on arrival and you are shown to your banda, which we definitely weren't expecting for a day trip! We went on the forest walk which was very interesting and saw a few of the island creatures and... More

We stayed on Chumbe Island for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. When we arrived we didn't feel like going on the forest walk right away so one of the rangers took us later in the day and one morning they took us and another couple for an extra snorkel while we...

Totally lived up to expectations. We stayed a night, would have liked to stay 2 but wasn't in our budget. Snorkelling was good (bit choppy when we were there so not the best snorkelling I've done and the only we did in Zanzibar so can't compare to other places), saw sharks from the restaurant and beach but not from the...

We recently spent three nights at Chumbe as we finished up an inland safari. It was the perfect relaxing counterpoint; the snorkeling was lilke the game viewing had been - amazing. Chumbe is wonderful - the most rustic and yet the most relaxing (and romantic) place to stay. We were extremely comfortable and slept better at Chumbe than anywhere else... More

Chumbe is the most amazing place that I’ve ever been, I urge anyone to go at least once in their life! My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights after a week-long safari and Chumbe proved to be the perfect place to relax and totally and utterly disconnect from the world. You genuinely feel like a cast-away in the... More

We stayed at the island one night but from the very moment we arrived we discovered how amazing this place is, a so tiny island but full of life and beauty, the service is excellent, the food is absolutely delicious. Perfect place to relax and also to be in contact with nature. All the operation there is truly Eco Friendly.... More

Hard to choose whether to start with the property or the people. Chumbe Island is a must for anyone who appreciates eco-preservation presented simply and elegantly. This property exemplifies - no sets the bar - for attention to detail. The goal is 100% comfort with 0% footprint and it is so well done. Drop the pack of urban everything and... More

Chumbe Island Lodge fully lives up to its 5 star reputation. The island is beautiful and the bungalows give that Robinson Crusoe experience, bringing you closer to nature. The staff are a real delight, the (optional) activities are well organised and the food is amazing. There was also a fantastic selection of books to look at. I particularly liked the... More

This place is absolute amazing. The staff was wonderful, knowledgeable about the island regarding plants, wildlife and history and went the extra mile to make sure you were enjoying yourself. One of the things I did not know about the island is that it is a conservation area. No one lives on the island and everything they do goes to... More
