Pumzika Beach Resort: how it all began…

25 Feb

We are both from the south part of Switzerland, the Valais, Danielle from the French region and André from the Lötschental. We are in our 50 and happy parents of 3 adult boys. We lived in Bern for 30 years.

During our travels, we started to search for a quiet, sunny and warm place by the sea. We found it here in Zanzibar and live here now as residents since November 2010.

We used a lot of energy, courage, work and had many surprises to get this small paradise. We are now ready to share it with you.

We speak English, German and French and understand Italian and will care for you and your comfort to make of your stay a truly authentic experience.

We protect the environment using solar energy, getting water from our own source, sorting and recycling the trash carefully.

Pumzika Beach Resort is located in the South-East of the Island of Zanzibar, close to the Indian ocean  and two kilometers away from the fishermen‘s village oft Makunduchi. The region still has few tourists and is located at a one hour drive from Stone Town.

Five bungalows of different shapes and styles, a lovely arranged large garden, a beautiful swimming pool, a private beach, a restaurant and a bar: this will be your environment during your holiday. You will rest in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Assisted by an African cook, the owner prepares local products and offer an Euro-African cooking for you. We also offer vegetarian meals.

The white-sanded private beach (with shower and toilets) brings you directly to the public beach where the fishermen will have you for a trip in their dhows, where the women work on coconut shells and take care of the plantations of the tongue during the low-tide.

We offer the following activities and games:

 * Relaxing or stimulating massages

* Reflexology for the hands or the feet

* Fitness with barbells, body-building device, trampoline

* Giant facilities of chess and mill

* Petanque

* Minigolf

* Swim course

* Snorkeling

* African kitchen course
