  • Zanzibar North Coast & Turtle Sanctuary Tour

    1. Zanzibar North Coast & Turtle Sanctuary Tour

    The most popular beaches of Zanzibar are in Nungwi. This is mostly because the tides do not have such a huge impact on the beach. But, did you know that Nungwi is also the capital of local dhow manufacturing? Find out all about how these impressive sailing vessels are made and get the chance to see local craftsman in action. Later, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. After that, experience a real turtle sanctuary. Here, turtles are treated and healed of any illnesses before being released to the ocean. Get the chance to swim with these incredible animals and feed them.  All fees paid here contribute towards turtle welfare and the education of tourists on their impact to the local environment.

    Great experience to be able to feed the turtles and be in their environment. Must visit experience.

What people are saying about Nungwi

It was an absolute hit. We had the trip on the second day of our arrival. Our guide took us to the original, non-touristy part and told us a lot about politics, culture, handcraft and life in Zanzibar. It was very exciting. He also showed us the easiest way to get back from the village to the Hotel Sandies and that it is more likely to do shopping where women sell because they use the income for the children. All in all a really recommendable excursion. The sunset trip is also uuuuu absolutely recommended! There is a bongo team on board, which creates a good atmosphere and the ship is unique! I don't want to reveal too much here, take part!

The guide Juma was very nice and very knowledgeable. He told me a lot about Zanzibar. Swimming with the turtles was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend to everyone coming to Zanzibar!
