What people are saying about Zanzibar Archipelago

Smoooth transport & fascinating scenery in Mnemba. We visited 3 different sites & got to swim in the most perfect shade of turquoise waters, no doubt the most clear bed of water I have ever witnessed. The cherry on top was the fresh fruitplatter that our captain put together for us, delicious! We had a private tour which was great because it meant that we got the boat for ourselves. There were quite a few other boats around (understandable because its such a spectacular site) - however, our guide kindly parked the boat slightly away from the crowds so we could enjoy our privacy as well :) 10/10 would recommend this excursion if you are in Zanzi!

We did not expect much but we were totally surprised. Everything was planned perfectly. Very friendly driver and also the captain really tried his best so we could see the dolphins. He tried all he could and we have been very lucky and have unforgettable memories from that trip. Thank u!!!

Punctual! Picked up from the hotel and then a 20 minute drive to the boat... a small nutshell but great. Great fruits on the boat and lots of fish on the atoll and reef. It was totally worth it!

Juma and his skipper were great in spotting the dolphins. We were lucky to see between 7 to 10 dolphins .

Very pleasant experience Breathtaking landscape Heavenly snorkeling Thanks to Juma and his teams!
