Your Destination

Just off the east coast of Africa, Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island and is infused with African, Arab, European and Indian influences, resulting in a melting pot of culture for you to explore. 

The island offers a beguiling blend of beautiful beaches, incredible marine life and intriguing local history and culture.

Over many centuries, different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to make 'The Spice Island' what it is today, impacting the local culture to create the present vibrant fusion. The cuisine, culture, and accepting, friendly attitude is a reflection of the multicultural past and present of the island.

Zanzibar's Indian Ocean offers world-class watersports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing. Or the white sand beaches are perfect for just chilling out if you fancy something less active!

Recently declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, why not visit the fascinating historical Stone Town, the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar? It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through this fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

Fumba Beach Lodge 4*

On one of Zanzibar’s most secluded beaches is this small and peaceful hideaway. Set on 40 acres of the Menai beach conservation area, Fumba beach peninsula is both a large marine haven and an eco-project. It is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty since 1998, by the World Wild Life Federation.

Away from busy tourist areas, this is the perfect venue for enjoying tranquillity, and the space to dream, swim, dive, and walk amongst tropical gardens.

This independently-owned, rustic beach retreat is set in the heart of the Menai Bay Conservation Area. Its 26 thatched cottages are strung along a two-kilometre beach where you can launch yourself into the sea for reef dives and picnic on secluded sandbanks.

Optional Safari Blue Excursion

Add on a Safari Blue Excursion at the next stage of the booking process for an additional fee to amplify your experience.

A full day excursion on a traditional sailing dhows, Safari Blue starts from Fumba, the perfect starting point to explore Menai Bay, an official Conservation Area. Home to beautiful uninhabited islands, the area is stunning, frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins.

On arrival at Fumba, clients are given a briefing on Safari Blue, and then you board your dhow, and you’re off to explore the bay. Dolphins are sighted on approximately 90% of trips. The anchor is dropped at the Kwale sandbank, where sunshades are set up, and guests have the chance to go snorkelling in the coral reefs, helped by the guides.

After snorkelling, you’ll be offered refreshments to whet your appetite before heading to Kwale Island, for lunch under the tamarind trees. Drinks are served throughout the day and lunch is a buffet of grilled fish, lobster, calamari, chicken and rice, with a tasting of tropical fruits.

After lunch, you can sunbathe, snooze or visit the beautiful mangrove lagoon. Depending on the tide, you may be able to take a swim in the lagoon. For the adventurous, join the crew to sail in a “ngalawa”, a local outrigger canoe but be careful not to tip the boat! Then it’s back to Fumba for around 5:30 pm.

Advisable: 
- Swimwear, towel and water resistant shoes for walking over coral.
- Water resistant bag for cameras and other valuables.
- Sunscreen and Hat.
