Chumbe Island is a small, remote, uninhabited island off the coast of Zanzibar. Today it is one of Africa’s only marine protected areas, offering an exclusive island getaway, a paradise for you to enjoy complete privacy with your family and friends. A secluded island with seven eco-bungalows in the Indian Ocean, allowing for an eco-conscious escape. Situated in the world’s first privately managed marine park, you can snorkel and swim above an untouched and thriving coral reef and enjoy the turtles, parrotfish, rays, reef sharks and many other wonderful marine organisms. Here, you can rest, rejuvenate and enjoy the private Bahari Breeze beach with a coconut to drink in hand. Or explore the forest amongst the birds, coconut crabs and timid Ader’s Duiker antelope. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not climb to the top of the lighthouse and have a full view of the island and Zanzibar?
Infuse your being with the warmth of the sunshine, the glitter on the water and charisma of the wonderful Chumbe Team.
Did you know you can hire the whole island for yourself and have complete privacy and VIP service?
This would include your own private boat to and from the island, the whole island and marine park to yourself, your choice of bungalow, the freedom to relax and get comfortable wherever you like, with food and drinks catered just for you and your family/friends.
How about a private breakfast with a sunrise view of the ocean? Or candle-lit dinner on the beach with the sound of the waves all to yourselves? A truly unbeatable, private island experience.
