The instructors were awesome: friendly and encouraging. Greeting to Damian, who had such great energy. After filling out some forms, the instructions were taught in prerecorded videos. Tip: Bring a banana, you can feed the fish under the water. The dive itself was done directly from the beach, you walk into the water and then start diving up to 8 meters. The underwater time is around 30 mins. You can see trumpet fishes and octopuses. I am very respectful in regard to water, but when I was down, everything was so peaceful, playful, and clean. The fishes are really looking at you and are not fearful at all. I enjoyed this experience so much, I will learn to dive in Zanzibar next year :)

Really nice safari, the guides were very sweet, not all of them spoke good english but managed to understand each other well. We had 3 guides, including a Dutchman, so if something was not completely clear, we could ask again later. We were picked up at our hotel so that was great too. Seen beautiful views and really experienced the off-road feeling. We were comfortable in the Landrovers, but mixed with another group in the car.

Totally recommended experience! The very friendly crew, you have enough time to do the activities it offers, and also the exquisite food!
