Chumbe Island Coral Park is a unique and memorable travel destination, situated 8 km southwest of zanzibar town. The park includes a fully protected coral reef sanctuary and forest reserve that harbour extremely rare and endangered animals, a Visitor and Education centre, a small eco-lodge, nature trails and historical ruins. All buildings and operations are based on state-of-the-art eco-technology aiming at zero impact on the environment (rainwater catchment, photovoltaic energy and solar water heating, composting toilets, vegetative greywater filtration etc.
Accommodation on Chumbe Island is in many aspects something really special, there are only seven bungalows, the island never gets crowded, even when the island is fully booked. The bungalows themselves are so brilliantly designed that they provide both privacy and a sense of freedom of living in the open. All bungalows overlook the sea and it takes just 30 seconds to stroll from the comforts of your bungalow hammock to feeling the warm tropical ocean lapping at your feet
