In Nungwi you get some action with a Zanzibar vibe. The big advantage with Nungwi is the absence of the tide and the night life on the beach where restaurants put out their candle light tables and welcome you with beach bonfires.
Pick up at airport or ferry and transfer to Nungwi. Rest of the day beach relax on the beautiful white beach.
Mnemba Island is a Marine Conservation area with a vast oval reef system filled with colourful fish and corals. This is the best snorkeling spot on the Island with crysal clear turqoise water. You can expect to see lion fish, moray eels, stingrays and turtles swimming around in the shallow water. If we are lucky you can jump in the water surrounded by dolphins. A lunch will be served on Muyuni beach: fish barbecue, fruit and water.
Swimming, feeding and touching the giant turtles and the fish in the natural aquarium in Nungwi is sensational for anyone loving the experience of interacting with animals. This day our guide/driver will take you there and back when you feel ready to continue your Zanzibar holiday in Nungwi.
