Guest Reviews of Wildfitness Zanzibar


Wonderful few days at Michamvi. The staff are incredibly friendly, food superb and great rooms. This place has an intimate feel with only 20 rooms. The owner/manager and his team are always around and take the time to have a beer with you. Spent the days watching the ever changing colours of the sea, walking on deserted white sand beaches or swimming in the more than adequate pool. Meals were at different locations in the resort every night including on the beach and were something we looked forward to. The place nestles well into the surrounding environment and most of the staff are from the local village. Good massage facilities too. Weather in February seems good with a nice north wind to cool you down. Well worth the trip - remember to have your yellow fever vaccination card to avoid being jabbed at the airport.

A real pearl on the seaside on the East coast of Zanzibar. You seldomly find a hotel where the whole staff is so eager to provide you the most enjoyable stay. We spent five nights to relax after a one week wonderful but tiring safari in the north. The hotel has a reasonable size (about 20 rooms), and the whole staff quickly knows you to provide personalized and friendly service. Rooms are large, quiet, nicely furnished and very confortable with a deck facing the sea and the wonderful sunsets. Very nice private beach and pool in a beautiful garden. The bar and the restaurant facing the beach are gorgeous. Every day menu setting is different (buffet, table service, barbecue on the beach, music... ) always with refined local dishes and good wines. The lunch menu is various and excellent. The hotel will arrange personalized excursions like the spice tour combined with a nice local lunch on the beach. Thank you again to Dave and his whole staff for our fabulous experience! A perfect relaxing stay to recover from a stressful safari!
