Zanzibar Safari Blue
Get aboard a motorboat and experience a safari while floating down the Rufiji river in Nyerere national park. You're guaranteed to see crocodiles, hippos and buffaloes. Riverine marshes overlooked by panoramic plains decorated with golden grass, songs and the play of countless birds will surely add some sighs to the stunning beauty and richness of this largest river in Tanzania. Full day, morning or afternoon safaris are available. A 10 am morning safari usually follows an early walking tour, a 3 pm afternoon safari promises breath-taking sunset views, and a full day safari will please you with an insight into animals' daily routine
Details of Zanzibar Safari blue – by boat
Your full-day Safari blue experience will start embarking on a traditional dhow from the Fumba fishing village.
Primary the dhow, introduced by the Arabs, was a trading vessel used by the Swahili. They could be massive – it once transported a giraffe to the Chinese Emperor. Today they reflect the craftsmanship of Zanzibari timbers.
Aboard you will get to know the sea and shores of Zanzibar, islands and coral reefs of a pristine conservation region, the Menai bay, with a chance to take a dip in front of the naturally occurring sandbanks. After a refreshing swim rest on the white sand with a coconut tree providing shade. The crystal clear turquoise water is appreciated also by the dolphins and you can easily see some swimming around the area.
You will visit a 200 hundred years old baobab tree, and the persistent ones may try to climb it and enjoy breathtaking views. With a little luck, you might even see gigantic coconut crabs, living in the hollow trunk.
Another great opportunity for a swim is in a mangrove lagoon on Kwale Island. Swimming through the branches is quite a special experience! Fingers crossed for a high tide to even enhance it!
In between, you'll sink into the deep blue with your mask and snorkel, swim, perhaps even with a dolphin around.
You will certainly be hungry with all these activities, so there's an excellent seafood buffet lunch prepared for you.
Do you think it's too active? Don't take part in any of the activities, just relax and indulge in one of the highlights of your Zanzibari vacation.
