Chumbe Island Lodge
Chumbe Island Lodge Zanzibar
Chumbe Island is a tiny coral island about six miles by boat from Zanzibar Town. Many years ago, Tanzania had a military base here and strictly restricted access to the surrounding ocean. Thus the area's coral remained untouched – even by local fishermen. After that, conservationists realised its value and when the military left, in 1993 the area was placed under the protection of its own marine park: Chumbe Island Coral Park.
