Chumbe Island is located eight miles southwest of Zanzibar Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania , this Island is a successful self-sustaining marine park and forest reserve off the coast of East Africa.The 55-acre island is covered by a coral rag forest, where vegetation grows without groundwater in a bed of recent coral deposits, and is bordered by a fringing coral reef (a type of reef that is directly attached to a shore).The coral reef is home to over 420 fish species and 200 stone coral species.Following successful rat eradication, the island has become a sanctuary for many endangered and rare species, such as Ader’s Duikers, Coconut Crabs, and Roseate Terns.

This island was selected for the sanctuary from among several candidates because a nearby shipping lane limited fishing around the island, and aim was intended to avoid alienating the local fishermen, whose support would be necessary for the success of the project.Self-sustainable, both financially and environmentally, the coral park is an example of conservation and ecotourism.Revenues generated from eco-tourism cover all operational expenses for project and pay for the public education program.

The initial capital for the project was provided in part by the company and in part by eco-friendly donors and ensure all measure are taken ensure minimize the human impact on the ecosystem.Unlikely to other Island excursion trips, Chumbe Island offers a typical eco-tourism life experience yet share it magnificent stunning view of its kinds enough to make your tour very impressive and unforgettable, in other point is to say Chumbe is a “Nature Reserve”.
