It's located on a quiet beach in the south of the island, far from the crowded tourist areas. Kizimkazi's beaches are unique to Zanzibar not only for the beautiful uninterrupted views of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean, but better still the surrounding waters are also famous as the playground for Zanzibar's dolphins! Our purpose is to offer comfort, hospitable service, good food and friendly ambiance, yoga & ayurvedic massage,among others. Thoughtfully designed to suit every discerning traveler, with good taste, conserving the African and Swahili style.

What a lovely place this is! We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and the owner. Felt at home immediately. The setting is stunning, the colour of the sea as you expect on Zanzibar :-) The decoration of the lodge is wonderful. Zanzibari style :-) Food was great. Looking forward coming back to this wonderful place.

We have stayed over one afternoon while waiting for a boat. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and the view amazing. We saw dolphins and corals close by. We ll come back next time to stay in the hotel.

The hotel is located more than an hour from the airport, which is convenient if you want to disconnect from tourist sites .. the view is spectacular and in December the sea has high tides where you can move up to 4 meters up or down! ! Hotel food is very fresh and delicious. the staff is friendly and can interact in some words with your native language ... unfortunately there is a lack of some things like cheese, instant coffee, sugar-free Coca-Cola

Dear Alejo, Warm smiles from Karamba :-) Thanks for dedicating us a review. Did you forget that we are in Africa? and in a Island? Not always those, imported, items are available and less in peak season. But we always have our fresh home made products as jams, fresh made Tanzanian coffee,fresh fruit juice (with or without sugar) etc etc... It's healthy during holidays taste fresh and healthy products ;-) We were very happy to receive you in our small piece of paradise and we hope you will return soon. With our best wishes Karamba Team

Good service, good food offerings, very nice owner and everyone is very customer focused. The location is also really nice. We spent there three days and never really felt the need to explore outside, which is a first for us.

Karamba is an island escape, perched on the edge of the coral rock shoreline. It is the perfect place for a quiet and romantic getaway with your partner. Our bungalow was cozy with an outdoor shower and afforded us a view of the ocean from our bed. There is nothing like hearing the ocean at your doorstep to put you to sleep. The room was spotlessly clean and decorated with Zanzibarian flair. The bungalows are accessed by sandy trails lined with lush green jungle plants. It really feels like a tropical paradise. Nice large and clean pool for sunbathing. Large covered area for yoga practice while looking out at the ocean. We loved all the day beds and places to sit and just let the day pass by slowly. The restaurant is EXCELLENT! We tried as many things as we could on the menu. The chef there is first class! He even came out to ask us personally how the food was and explain the dishes for us. The bar is very good and well stocked! Gemma, the Manager/Owner, is a bright and vivacious personality that we absolutely loved. She treats her guests like family and is committed to her guests having an unforgettable stay!
