A safe home
‘Wazee’, the Swahili word for mature people, are receiving the highest respect on Zanzibar. They are the first address for all family members to not only receive advise, but permission and blessings. The elderly man or a grandfather is called Babu. The female pendent is the so-called Bibi.

Babu’s and Bibi’s are wise, grounded and reliable. Their charisma is warm and secure, genuine and treasuring. So are our bungalows called BIBI and BABU.

Come and explore.

The Team

Babu Villas was our home once. We are friends will all neighboring families for many years and very connected within the local community. Our love for this particular place was the first brick of Babu and Bibi Villas. We wanted to share the calm beauty, the warmhearted ease and the breathtaking views with you. Our family is a colorful, super friendly and a loud bunch of people, but no worries – we don’t live on the property anymore, but only a 5-minute walk away. Salum was born on Zanzibar and so are our children. Leonie came to this island and fell in love with it in 2014 and never returned to her home country Germany.



Babu Villas rests in the heart of our favorite village on Zanzibar, Jambiani Kibigija. We are surrounded by a beautiful local life and the stunning white sanded endless beaches of Jambiani. A Koran school, a mosque, local craftsmen and the turquoise blue ocean. That’s all you need.
