Location

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous archipelago off the coast of Tanzania consisting of Zanzibar Island and it is also rated as the no. 2 Best Beach in the world according to Places to See in Your Lifetime! Nungwi is a charming little village located at the northern tip of Zanzibar. The village is very popular with tourists since swimming in the ocean is possible even at low tide seasons. The Nungwi Beach was ranked by CNN as the 43rd out of 100 Best Beaches in the world.


From a simple fishing village and dhow-building center, Nungwi has steadily become one of Africa’s most picturesque lines of coast, where palms amble onto a beach that dissolves gradually from spearmint blue into shades of deep turquoise. At sunset, white-sailed dhows leave from the boatyard, making for a great photo op.


The beach is one of the main attractions of this village. You can snorkel, swim, scuba dive on its crystal clear waters. Most of the dive centers also offer night dives, while the reef is not so great during the day, the night dives give you a chance to see all kinds of life that isn't out during the day including octopus, Spanish dancers, and even cuttlefish.


You can take a 2 hour sunset cruise on a dhow down to Kendwa and back. Alternatively, hire the whole dhow and enjoy a private cruise, lingering where you wish. You can also visit the Mnarani Aquarium/Sea Turtle Conservation area or take an adventure around the Northern region of Zanzibar with Zanzibar Cycling Adventures. It is an exciting new tour taking people around some hidden and beautiful places in the north villages of Zanzibar while you ride on a bicycle.


From Stone Town, getting to Nungwi Village takes between 1 and 2 hours. You can hire a car of make transport services for an additional cost. You can also hire a taxi from Stone Town ferry terminal or ride a dala dala bus #116 from Creek Road in Stone Town.

Venue   Flame Tree Cottages Bed & Breakfast
Flame Tree Cottages Bed & Breakfast, Venue for 12 Day African Safari Yoga Retreat

Located in Nungwi, on the north coast of Zanzibar, the Flame Tree Cottages is a small family run hotel with only 16 rooms. The hotel is ideally situated for diving and snorkelling with five diving centres in its vicinity. It is nestled in a private tropical garden which lends it a calm feel. The owners are proud to acknowledge the local workmen who constructed the cottages, and the craftsmen who made their furniture and ornaments.


Flame Tree Cottages present a variety of room sizes and styles housed in small garden cottages with verandas. These include a honeymoon suite with twin verandas and a 2 bedroom family suite. All rooms feature air-conditioning, refrigerators, ceiling fans and WiFi access. The rooms are spacious and secluded. The bathrooms are slightly less modern than western expectations might assume and not as grand as at some of the area’s five star resorts, but are, nevertheless, clean and commodious.


There are a variety of activities offered, such as yoga classes, snorkeling and diving. Big game fishing trips can be arranged through the local deep-sea fisheries as well as reef-fishing trips and sunset Dhow (traditional yacht) trips. The Dhow trips organized privately by the hotel are well-worth the extra cost for the privacy they offer.


Flame Tree Cottages is a family run enterprise and consequently the staff and managers take a great deal of pride in the service they provide. Staff are all local, as the business supports other local commerce and craft. The resort is continuously patrolled, adding to its ‘safe’ feel. The hotel can feel removed from the beach. Although it is close, it is necessarily set back on account of the tides which come up very high in this region. The beaches are picturesque and good for bathing in sea and sun. 


Flame Tree Cottages are about an hour and a half’s drive from Stone Town and the airport. The hotel will arrange transfers for a set fee.
