Car: Not Necessary

Kamili View is located in Kiwengwa, the largest village of Zanzibar north east coast, in an area called 'Mafarasi, where you can find a range of shops for everything you will need to make your stay great. Mafarasi is also a good starting point for those brave enough to try the local transports, 'DalaDala', instead of comfortable taxi.

KIWENGWA BEACH: famous for its kilometres of long... seemingly endless... powder white sand! At low tide when waves give way to warm puddles, like little turquoise bath tubs, long walks can replace your swims. The best way to enjoy the beauty of the tide, which wax and wane every 6 hours, is taking a walk to the coral reef to find fish, octopus and other marine creatures caught in the rock pools...listen to the sound of the ocean that slowly comes back... take refuge on a sand bank which gets smaller and smaller and jump on your 'ngalawa', a local canoe, booked in advance to reach the shore by sail.

DALADALA: are you looking for simple but deep emotions? A ride on a DalaDala will be definitely the subject of your trip tales once back home! Maybe because in the space of 20 we squeeze up to 30... including big Mamas hiding kids under their dresses. Maybe because the steering reminds you a formula one race track!! Or maybe just to feel yourself unburden of some unnecessary needs... Who knows? DalaDala n°117 Kiwengwa-StoneTown... only for the bravest!!!

LOBSTERS & MORE: Eating is not a problem in Kiwengwa... from sumptuous buffets found in the resort hotels and fine dining dishes served at a handful of boutique hotels, to a delicious lobster BBQ and tastily cooked Swahili food prepared at the friendly local restaurants along the beach. Chakula Chema, enjoy your meal!

SHOPPING: Ebony arts, batik, oil paintings, Masai jewels, elegant beads & leather shoes, colorful fabrics... and more... hundreds of stalls along the beach for wonderful local shopping.

HORSE RIDING ALONG THE SHORE: pleasant... relaxing.... There's a nice riding stables only few minutes from us, why not to take advantage.

KITE SURF: Kiwengwa has several kite centers with qualified instructors and good equipment... the shallow sea floor and the nice wind make Zanzibar east coast an ideal place for kite surf lovers.

DIVING: Diving and Snorkelling in Zanzibar are experiences you can't miss!! From the colourful coral reef, to the great creatures depths, to the fashinating and mysterious wrecks. The best dive center in Zanzibar is situated in Kiwengwa with all our pleasure... just 500 meter away.

Kiwengwa is all this and much more... we hope that our experience makes you enjoy the village and the whole island in the best way

...and beyond... what to do during your zanzibari holiday:

• Stone Town Tour... getting lost in a fascinating labyrinth made of sultans and traders tales.

• Safari Blue... Lulled by the waves, in a dhow trip through coral reef, sand banks and desert islands.

• Diving e Snorkelling... Discovering the rich and colorful depths of Zanzibar and its atolls.

• Spice Tour... a charming walk through the most spicy botanical gardens in the world.

• North and Turtles... Nungwi e Kendwa, best beaches, natural aquariums, and beautiful sundown.

• Jozani Forrest and Red Monkeys... the green heart of Zanzibar.

• The Butterfly Farm... from caterpillar to butterfly, the amazing life cycle of this graceful creatures.

• Kizimkazi and the Dolphins... The southern tip and its vast population of bottle nose dolphins.

• Parasailing... a breath-taking experience and the best view ever in the Island.

we will be delighted to assist you on choosing the most suitable excursions for you.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Nice to meet you... we are Carola & Mado... and also Tatu & Aiden... We are a Zanzibari-Italian family, with deep roots in the ancient Florentine land on one side and the warm sand of Kiwengwa on the other. Together we realized our dream project! We built 3 houses - built them with passion and love, tracing and designing every piece, from foundation to roof, from staircases to the interior decorations...we took care of each plant, each flower...and finally watched the making of our lush garden. We will be pleased and delighted to host you during your stay in Zanzibar and to help you to discover and experience in total freedom all the secret corners of this fascinating island.

Why the Owner Chose Matemwe:
Kamili View lays its first/foundation stone on a crumpled 1000 Lire bill and a brand new one of 1000 tanzanian shillings... it was Valentine Day 2011. After a bit more then one year the building was done and we were flying to Italy to give birth to our second child. 2013... sun and rains during our absence have completed our job, coloring and invigorating the garden... Welcome!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The aim behind Kamili View is to enjoy hosting our own guests and share with them our love for this beautiful Island, which deserves to be explored in total freedom! Go shopping at the market for the tastiest organic, locally grown produce, choose the fresh catch of the day from the fisherman on the beach, rent a bike or a car and experience all the secret corners of Zanzibar... Living the island life without rules or timetables to follow, together with the local community or in total privacy, in the relaxing environment of our brand new apartments, built with comfort and practicality in mind as well as some Swahili style and flair.
