Safari Blue Excursion
Join this full day excursion with The Safari Blue Crew for an epic day of aquatic activities. Laid-back or lively, a Safari Blue day is filled with choice. Dolphins are spotted on 90% of all trips, as the Menai bay Conservation Area is a sanctuary for humpback and bottlenose dolphins.
Safari blue activities include:
Snorkel: Glide through the warm Indian Ocean and gaze at the abundant and diverse marine life through translucent waters.
Swim: From the sandbank, boat and Kwale Island – the day is filled with opportunities to play in the stunning waters.
Sunbathe: Relax and bask in the sun under the clear Zanzibari sky.
Baobab: Climb a giant and unusual baobab tree, or just admire it from the ground.
Ngalawa: Sail on a double-outrigger canoe used by local fishermen.
Mangroves: When the tide allows, swim through a lush mangrove forest in a beautiful hidden lagoon.

Morning: 08:00 from beach hotel or 08:30 from stone town hotel
Things to Bring: A hat, sunscreen, flip flops, swimsuit, and beach towel.

When the day is done, the crew hoists the lateen sail as you make a leisurely voyage back to Fumba as the sun sets on your glorious day in paradise.
