Highlights
  • Swim with and feed turtles
  • Enjoy the most popular local beaches
  • Find out how dhow boats are made
Full description

The most popular beaches of Zanzibar are in Nungwi. This is mostly because the tides do not have such a huge impact on the beach. But, did you know that Nungwi is also the capital of local dhow manufacturing? Find out all about how these impressive sailing vessels are made and get the chance to see local craftsmen in action. Later, enjoy lunch including one complimentary drink at a local restaurant. After that, experience a real turtle sanctuary. Here, turtles are treated and healed of any illnesses before being released to the ocean. Get the chance to swim with these incredible animals and feed them.  All fees paid here contribute towards turtle welfare and the education of tourists on their impact on the local environment.

    Swimming with the turtles was quite nice. Afterwards we visited a small zoo which was 5 steps away. (Admission not included) The village through which we drove afterwards was totally interesting. where you could also go shopping. Here, too, I have to praise the organizers and guides. well done

    Visiting the turtles was nice, the food in the restaurant was very good, but I didn't like the beach, the water level was low and then my driver took me to another, very nice beach - thank you!
