Kizimkazi Dolphin Tour

Sail to encounter wild dolphins in their natural habitat. Guided by knowledgeable locals, you will cruise through turquoise waters, awaiting the playful creatures to appear. As the dolphins will gracefully surface, you can challenge your agility: jump into the water, chase the dolphins and swim among them. It is a rewarding experience that will connect you with the wild marine life of Zanzibar.
Red Colobus & Mangroves Tour.

In Jozani Forest National Park, you’ll meet the endemic red colobus monkeys, gentle and intelligent creatures that only eat vegetation and won’t annoy visitors. Watch as they interact and care for their young, and marvel at their social behavior. The Jozani flora is also impressive: from the dense fairy-tale jungle with giant ferns and lianas to the mangroves with wooden bridges between the trees standing in the water.

Seaweed Farm

On Paje, the east coast of Zanzibar, local ladies engage in an unusual form of aquaculture – cultivating seaweed. You’ll visit a seaweed farm on your way to a delicious lunch at an excellent restaurant and see the women take care of their underwater plantations, singing songs, and making products from the seaweed. Don’t forget your aquashoes for this excursion.

Swimming in a sacred cave

The Kuza Cave is your next destination in this special tour. Crystal-clear lake over 2 meters deep covers this entire “secret” cave. The gentle turquoise color of the water and these “decorations” of stalactites and stalagmites will amaze you. Bring your snorkeling mask and explore this sacred place beneath the surface. This cave is still considered a sacred place by many locals.
Call it a day with the sunset yoga session, before you enjoy your delicious dinner and a soft bed after a day packed with adventures.
