Karamba is located at Kizimkazi along the south-west of Zanzibar.

The south-west coast of Zanzibar is characterized by small coves and provisional beaches that arise and disappear with the changing of the tides. Karamba does not feature a its own private beach but shares the permanent beach of the fishermen village of Kizimkazi.
 
The hotel provides a budget-medium level of servicing and consists of 21 bungalows with open-air shower divided into various categories that can sleep up to six people. All are equipped with fans but there is no air conditioning which could be almost certainly welcomed by most travellers in the hottest  months of January and February.

Karamba is complemented by the restaurant, the bar, the swimming-pool and the SPA which also offers ayurvedic massages..

Activiries offered include yoga, diving which is arranged through an external diving centre set in Kizimkazi, boat safari exploring the little islets, sandbanks and secrets coves along the coast, trips to the Jozani Forest, guided visits to Stone Town which can be combined with a spice tours.

The south west coast has several excellent dive sites interesting for coral gardens, tropical fish, occasionally green turtles but it is also very interesting for large pelagic species that can be encountered in deeper waters. According to the time of travelling you might expect to see migratory whales, yellow fins tuna, barracuda, gray reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, white and black sharks, tiger sharks while dolphins are resident and normally enter the bay early in the morning.

Karamba is a quite interesting place for travellers who wish to stay close to the local community and away from mass-tourism locations.
