    The Bushman’s Hideout is an old colonial-style luxury villa set in the natural African bush gardens of Zanzibar Villas’ private estate. The villa is built on solid ancient coral reef rock and is surrounded by a natural African paradise garden, full of wildflowers, game such as Dik-Dik antelopes and bush pigs, and a variety of colorful bird and butterfly species. Many animals come to drink at the watering hole or graze on the grass in front of the main veranda in the early mornings and evenings.
    Originally built in 1996 for an Englishman who worked for 20 years in the African bush, the decor is a mix of hunting lodge, traditional Zanzibari and rustic African styles, which all contribute to its unique atmosphere.

    The villa layout is all on a single level with solid wooden fl...

The villas estate can be summed up in one word: WOW!!! Sheer luxury but with the added bonus of wild areas full of birds and animals, most especially the dik-diks who visited us at Bushman's every day and the swallows who seemed to enjoy the pool area as much as we did. The staff were never obtrusive but always to... more

The kitchen had a suspicious smell and the... more

We loved Bushman's Retreat. As its title describes, it's hidden off the beaten track, but still in a central location in Paje and (essentially) a short walk to the beach. We didn't want for anything and felt very secure. The owners and staff were very attentive to our needs, the facilities were excellent and spacious. Can't wait for our next... more
