More than just a tropical getaway! Chumbe Island is breathtakingly beautiful and the snorkeling is amazing, but what really impressed us was the staff and their conservation efforts. Unlike other places we had stayed in Tanzania / Zanzibar, the team at Chumbe really went above and beyond to demonstrate their interest in environmental stewardship and genuine concern for the guests. We really felt spoiled for all four days we were here, and after a 4 week trip in Tanzania, Chumbe was the experience we always tell our friends about first. Definitely not to be missed!
