Ubunifu's Partners bring a unique toolbox of skillsets to their Projects, their multi-disciplinary expertise acquired in executive leadership positions and high-profile Project work across East Africa and around the Globe.  We are united by our shared beliefs in responsible development, the opportunities for creating and delivering remarkable and meaningful hospitality and residential projects for the extraordinary real estate assets on offer across East Africa. 

Based in Stone Town, Zanzibar, Ubunifu offer peerless perspective and familiarity of the Zanzibar and Tanzanian tourism and residential landscapes, with an extensive track record of advising and developing successful hospitality projects, working with master developers and asset owners on mixed-use, luxury residential and hospitality projects, ranging from $5m to $1.5b in volume.

What this means for our Development Partners is a proven track record for identifying market gaps in the hospitality and residential sectors of Zanzibar and Tanzania, and custom-designing the perfectly-positioned solution for these unfulfilled demand gaps, developing  premium product of exceptional design and sustainability credentials, with robust returns, in the process.

Smart Development Frameworks

Ubunifu believe that if you are going to make a mark on pristine Tropical environments, then there is a duty to get it right, to set benchmarks for sustainable luxury tourism development in emerging destinations, and ensure that the lives of community partners and staff, as well as the guest experience, are elevated also…

We seek to work with clients and partners that share our beliefs in the necessity of responsible and sustainable development, our assessment of a Project's value based on its underlying ethics, rather than its financial volume.
