Uzi is a small island in the south of Zanzibar’s main island Unguja. Little has changed in Uzi during the last centuries. Most of the island's 5000 people are fishermen and farmers. Visitors to Uzi can experience pristine rural Zanzibar like it cannot be found elsewhere on Zanzibar’s main island Unguja.

The island is located in the Menai Bay Conservation Area which forms an important ecosystem of mangrove forests, sea grass beds, islands with fresh water forest, coral reefs and a large diversity of plants, land and water animals, including dolphins, African Sea Eagles, and protected marine turtles - a heaven for anyone enjoying nature.

A visit to Uzi might include a guided ecological tour to the Sea Turtle Lagoon and mangrove areas, and visiting Uzi village where traditional activities such as weaving, carving, henna painting, local crafts, seaweed farming and home cooking can be experienced.

Ecotourism and cultural tourism activities in Uzi are offered by Uzi Island Conservation Society, an initiative of proactive Uzians, Zenith Tours and World Unite!. Your visit to Uzi does not only help to create employment in Uzi, but all profits of the tours are being used for our conservation program which includes marine turtle conservation, environmental education and the creation of environmentally-friendly and sustainable income-generating activities for the local population of Uzi.

On your trip to Zanzibar, make sure not to miss Uzi Island! Its friendly people welcome you to experience their beautiful nature and rich culture!
