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 craftsmen in action. Later, enjoy lunch including one complimentary drink at 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 on the local environment.

What people are saying about Nungwi

Picking it up worked perfectly, we were alone while swimming with the turtles and could really enjoy it, then we still had time and went to the small zoo (admission not included). It was a very nice experience, everyone was very friendly and courteous.

It was really unique and very nice staff. We saw the ships on the coast, where the water had just run back very far. The two hotels there have blended in wonderfully with the village surroundings.

We went to the turtle sanctuary then to the beautiful beach of Nungwi where we had a good meal Then we went to the small zoo of Nungwi, small but worth the detour

Excellent experience with the turtles , really one of a kind .Also people are so sweet the person there took such amazing pics for us and so did our guide .

A unique experience. It's a mixture of sensations never felt to swim together with turtles and feed them in their natural habitat. Wonderfull.
