Karibu, Chumbe Island! We welcome you to take a virtual tour of all there is to explore on and around Chumbe Island, the world’s first privately managed Marine Protected Area.

The former lighthouse keepers’ house has been carefully restored and converted into our Visitors’ centre that harbours the restaurant and exhibits environmental information about the Chumbe nature reserve for all our visitors. A special classroom for our environmental education program was added in 2001. We also have a small gift shop that features locally made Zanzibar products that support women's collectives and small businesses in our region.
