Pumzika kwa Babu is located in the small village of Michamvi Kae, Zanzibar ( show map).

This little bungalow village is in a tropical, peaceful, relaxing place with a garden at about 300 metres (about 5 min by foot) from the palm-fringed beach.

The four bungalows have two rooms with private entrance and thatched-roof terrace. They all have a mosquito net and a coat-hanger. In each of the private bathrooms there is a shower. You can enjoy a view of the garden from the room under the thatched roof. The common outdoor area includes a fireplace where guests can gather round in the evenings and grill fresh fish.

At Pumzika kwa Babu there is a cafeteria where guests can enjoy a drink and a snack.

Guests can receive Swahili and Esperanto lessons and learn surprising traditional boardgames.

An array of activities can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings, including fishing, diving and snorkelling.
