Zanzibar Safari blue – by boat

Details of Zanzibar Safari blue – by boat

Your full-day Safari blue experience will start embarking on a traditional dhow from the Fumba fishing village. 

Primary the dhow, introduced by the Arabs, was a trading vessel used by the Swahili. They could be massive – it once transported a giraffe to the Chinese Emperor. Today they reflect the craftsmanship of Zanzibari timbers. 

Aboard you will get to know the sea and shores of Zanzibar, islands and coral reefs of a pristine conservation region, the Menai bay, with a chance to take a dip in front of the naturally occurring sandbanks. After a refreshing swim rest on the white sand with a coconut tree providing shade. The crystal clear turquoise water is appreciated also by the dolphins and you can easily see some swimming around the area.

You will visit a 200 hundred years old baobab tree, and the persistent ones may try to climb it and enjoy breathtaking views. With a little luck, you might even see gigantic coconut crabs, living in the hollow trunk. 

Another great opportunity for a swim is in a mangrove lagoon on Kwale Island. Swimming through the branches is quite a special experience! Fingers crossed for a high tide to even enhance it!

In between, you'll sink into the deep blue with your mask and snorkel, swim, perhaps even with a dolphin around. 

You will certainly be hungry with all these activities, so there's an excellent seafood buffet lunch prepared for you.

Do you think it's too active? Don't take part in any of the activities, just relax and indulge in one of the highlights of your Zanzibari vacation.
