Next to Fumba Lodge is the Fumba Village; like the site of Fumba beach Lodge it was originally bush. The villagers helped us finding this remote area, and with their help the lodge was built. Some villagers are still employed by Fumba Lodge and the Sheha (chief) of the village regularly passes by to say hello.
Guests are welcome to take a stroll through the village by themselves or accompanied by Chui, a Rhodesian Ridgeback who has lived at the lodge since she was a puppy. Chui is regularly mistaken as the Guest relation manager with her particular attitude, confidence and friendliness!
Guests can ask at reception to be accompanied by one of the staff to show them around the village to experience the local culture and daily life.
- Fumba lodge has a football team which regularly plays friendly games with the villagers.
- There is a nursery school in the village as well as a primary to secondary school.
- Fumba lodge gives back by providing support to the schools, small business plans, well-being, employing villagers, and in-house training.
- To help build a good team spirit we hold an annual regatta at the end of each year. The village, Fumba Staff, and guests join in this day of a sailing. Locals grew up with boats and are always keen and enthusiastic participants. Guests can join on the boats to enjoy the fun and experience this historic way of sailing
A hidden gem on the south west coast of the Island. Where friendliness is part of the simple life.
