    My family really enjoyed our tailor made trip. It wouldn't have been the same without or excellent guide Salum. He was friendly, funny and full of information. My two young daughters are still asking about him a week later! I would absolutely recommend Zenith Tour for young families as the Zanzibar is the perfect pace, a great mix of downtime and sightseeing.

    Excellent trip. I had a great time. There was nothing I could complain about. Guide was great and was always willing to talk with me, even answer what was probably an endless list of questions. Over 5 days we definitely had a feel for what the country looks like.

Full day tour. Safari Blue brings you close to one of the Indian Ocean’s most natural wonders.

A guide will show and explain interesting marine species and will also teach beginners how to snorkel. Then you can relax with a fruity snack on a paradise- like sandbank surrounded by turquoise blue waters. At that area pods of humpback and bottlenose dolphins are commonly seen hunting fish and squid at the surface of the water. The dhow will then bring you to an island where a seafood buffet is served comprising grilled calamari, two types of grilled fish, slipper lobster and chicken.

You will leave from Fumba on a traditional wooden dhow. The first stop is at the Kwale coral reef, offering an overwhelming abundance of corals and colourful fish to see.

After the lunch a tropical fruit tasting will be presented with the chance to savour between 10-15 species of tropical fruits. A shot of African Amarula liqueur in coffee will finish this gastronomical sensation. On a short walk into the island’s tropical forest, you will find a 500- year-old baobab tree which 70 years ago was toppled down by a storm; now its former branches continue to grow like trees themselves on top of the huge laid-down former trunk.

Short sailing trips on a Ngalawa - a traditional outrigger canoe, carved out of a single mango tree - swimming in the mangrove lagoon are amongst the other activities offered on the island. Upon concluding the excursion, you will be able to enjoy the sunset with a sundowner drink on the way back by sail to Fumba.
