Zanzibar: Swimming with Dolphins and Snorkeling Private Tour

1. Zanzibar: Swimming with Dolphins and Snorkeling Private Tour

Get picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle and head to the Kizimkazi village, where you will be met by the captain. Here, start your journey to meet and have a chance to swim with dolphins. The captain will take the boat to locations well-known for dolphin spotting, while maintaining a respectful distance. The well-equipped boat will travel to several spots to ensure time for dolphin watching and scenic snorkeling. Enjoy the beauty of the coral and the brightly colored fish. Along the way, savor some delicious snacks and fruits. After the tour, you will be brought safely to shore before being dropped off at your hotel.

Zanzibar: Mnemba Atoll Marine Reserve Snorkeling Tour

2. Zanzibar: Mnemba Atoll Marine Reserve Snorkeling Tour

After pickup at your hotel on Unguja, Zanzibar, hop in your private boat toward Mnemba Island. Depending on conditions, reach the coral reef of the Mnemba Atoll Marine Reserve in up to 20 minutes. Once there, explore a reef that is big enough for everyone so you won't feel crowded, even on busy days. Keep your eyes peeled for yellow snapper, barracuda, turtles, and much more. After snorkeling, enjoy a snack stop on a sandbank. Relax under the sun as you savor seasonal fresh fruit and other small bites. Later, head back to shore on Unguja. See local fishermen coming back from the sea and selling their day's catches before being transferred back to your accommodation.

Zanzibar: Jozani Forest National Park and Dolphin Encounter

3. Zanzibar: Jozani Forest National Park and Dolphin Encounter

Begin your experience early, as the morning is the best time to spot dolphins. Start in the Kizimkazi fishing village, which is one of the oldest capitals on Zanzibar Island. While looking out for dolphins, dive in to snorkel among the wonderful coral reef and the variety of colorful fish and marine creatures. If the dolphins are in a good mood, you can witness them goofing around.  As you will be in their natural habitat, there is no guarantee you'll have the chance to swim with the dolphins; your guide will do their best to ensure they are comfortable so you can enjoy their beautiful energy, whether up close or from a distance.  The trip to Zanzibar Jozani Forest national park involves a visit to the high, dense groundwater forest. Home to the red colobus monkey, a rare species only found in Zanzibar, take the opportunity to get up close to the wild animals. Other animals within the park include blue monkeys, elephant shrews, and bushbabies. Proceed then to the mangrove, through which the conservation authority has built a bridge to allow visitors to observe the wildlife without trampling on it.  Next, stop at a local restaurant for a Swahili table buffet lunch. Before heading back to your hotel, make a short stop at the community project, Zanzibar Butterfly Center. Even though the site is not so big, it is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the moment before ending your experience.

What people are saying about Zanzibar

The whole tour was a wonderful experience. Our driver drove quickly and safely from north to south. At first we could swim dolphins. We met a large group of at least 50 dolphins and could hardly believe our luck. Then we went to Jozzani Park. The colubus monkeys and the beauty of the park were impressive. We went on to lunch, which we could choose beforehand. The location and location had been selected to be excellent. With pool and loungers to linger. We went on to the butterfly farm. Unfortunately there weren't many butterflies at the time, but there were also cameleons to marvel at. All in all, a super nice excursion, which we would happily recommend.

Smoooth transport & fascinating scenery in Mnemba. We visited 3 different sites & got to swim in the most perfect shade of turquoise waters, no doubt the most clear bed of water I have ever witnessed. The cherry on top was the fresh fruitplatter that our captain put together for us, delicious! We had a private tour which was great because it meant that we got the boat for ourselves. There were quite a few other boats around (understandable because its such a spectacular site) - however, our guide kindly parked the boat slightly away from the crowds so we could enjoy our privacy as well :) 10/10 would recommend this excursion if you are in Zanzi!

I had the most wonderful experience and I’m so grateful to my guide Zuma. He was prompt in picking me up from the hotel at the agreed time. I got to snorkel and got to see the dolphins. Please note there’s a possibility that dolphins won’t be seen on the day; but my guide and the man who drove the boat communicated well and were resilient in ensuring I saw dolphins. The Jozani reserve tour was great with an attentive guide too. Lunch was delicious and relaxed. I really recommend this. Finally, as a solo female traveller, at no point did I feel unsafe

We did not expect much but we were totally surprised. Everything was planned perfectly. Very friendly driver and also the captain really tried his best so we could see the dolphins. He tried all he could and we have been very lucky and have unforgettable memories from that trip. Thank u!!!

Punctual! Picked up from the hotel and then a 20 minute drive to the boat... a small nutshell but great. Great fruits on the boat and lots of fish on the atoll and reef. It was totally worth it!
