Flame Tree Cottages is a charming and inexpensive guest house, owned by a Zanzibari-Scottish couple, situated on the north-western corner of Zanzibar, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Nungwi fishing village.
The accommodation comprises 14 cottages, ranging from a honeymoon (or family) suite, through double/twin room units, to one bedroom units, all with en-suite bathrooms, and most with separate sitting rooms. Breakfast is usually served on your own cottage veranda. You can dine in, choosing from a wide menu, including, naturally, a variety of sea food dishes, or visit one of Nungwi's nearby restaurants.
The hotel lies within a beautiful tropical garden, and a few short steps lead directly down onto the beach and ocean. An in-house traditional wooden boat (or 'mashua') caters for a range of sea-based sporting activities, and there are also three diving centres within walking distance. Excursions, including Spice Tours, Stone Town and Jozani Forest Tours can also be arranged.
Scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking, waterskiing, deep sea fishing - Zanzibar has it all.
Jozani Forest is home to the rare Red Colobus Monkey, and many other interesting animal and plant species.
Stone Town - the island's capital - contains a rich history of Arab influences, the slave trade, and so on, well repaying the time spent on exploration here.
It is difficult to imagine a better location for a stunning beach holiday than Zanzibar.
If you're looking for the honeymoon experience par excellence then we simply believe that you can't choose a better destination than Zanzibar.
