One of the most beautiful tours we have ever done on a trip. We already knew our taxi driver Ahmed from our first tour. The turtle sanctuary is located in a small lagoon. It was incredibly great to swim with the animals. They are made fit again here so that they can return to the wild after a year in good health. So it's not imprisonment! Since we still had time, we then went to the nearby zoo, which was at least as great. You could meet the animals up close, including monkeys, turtles, ostriches. Admission was $10/person. incl. private guide and animal feed. Afterwards we went to eat in a beach restaurant with local and international dishes. A main course and a drink were included, the second drink was given to us by the taxi driver. He also took his time so that we could stroll through a few shops. On the way home he even gave us a corncob.

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

Great day, picked up from hotel on time, wonderful time with the turtles then a small tour of the beach and boat workers ended with a lovely meal of freshly caught fish
