About
This is one of our must-do activities that you will not want to miss while you are in Zanzibar. The tiny but exceptional Mnemba reef offers indeed some of the best and most spectacular spots in the whole Archipelago, if not in East Africa. On this trip, we might (85% chance) see dolphins while cruising from Nungwi to Mnemba, we will stop for a while and you can enjoy seeing dolphins swimming, also you can take photos. Also, there is a Sandbank beside Mnemba Island, we might go there after snorkeling when it is low tides. Mnemba is well known for the excellent clarity of its waters ( for this area of the Indian Ocean) and the unusually prolific and diverse corals and tropical marine life where you can able to see a lot of colorful fishes while Snorkeling. Some of the species that you can see at Mnemba reef include; Angel Fish, Blue Spotted Rays, Black Snappers, Groupers, Red Tooth Triggers, Flounder, Octopuses, Leaf Fish, Scorpion Fish, Stone Fish, Frog Fish, and lots of Trevallies.

Fantastic trip and value for money
Dec 2020
My wife and I had a great trip to Mnemba Island organised by Sultan Tours. Ahmed communicated with us well before the trip and arranged pick up from our hotel in Nungwi. We were picked on time by Ahmed and taken to pick up our snorkelling equipment. The trip itself was fantastic. We saw dolphins on our way with an opportunity to swim with them. The staff were very helpful during the snorkelling even helping those who could not swim to snorkel. The island itself was beautiful and we were able to disembark and swim on an amazingly warm and clean stretch of the sand. On our way back we had very good lunch on on a nearby island before being dropped by our hotel. Overall, a fantastic day out and extremely good value for the money. I would strongly recommend.

Dec 2020
Wonderful trip, It was so organized. We depart exactly on time 9:00 from Nungwi and start Sailing to Mnemba. While on the way we saw so many Dolphins, and we stopped to take photos of them, it was so beautiful.

Once we arrived at Mnemba, we started Snorkeling at the reef and it was a great experience, we saw alot of beautiful fishes. We also did visit a Mnemba sandbank.

The lunch was very nice, we loved the food. it was so delicious.

In generally, we got more than what we were expecting plus it is so cheap while it worth more.

Great trip to Mnemba island
Sep 2020 • Solo
I booked the trip to Mnemba island with this company. They really provide an excellent service. They picked me up at my hotel and later we got the equipment. On the way to Mnemba we looked for dolphins and did swimming with them. It was amazing and the boat crew really patient to try it so many times. After we went to the island and did snorkeling there. The overall experience is great and would recommend them as a very good company in terms of rates and service.

I was wonderful
Feb 2020
We really had a wonderful day, we got picked by at our Hotel on time to Nungwi. then choose snorkeling equipment of our sizes and start the tour cruising with a traditional Dhow to Mnemba Island reef. The reef was so beautiful, lot of colorful fishes it is natural aquarium. After snorkeling at Mnemba we did go to Muyuni beach and have a lunch there and it was Great lunch (everything so fresh). Then after we did return to Nungwi. and we asked time to have some time at Nungwi beach because it was so beautiful and they let us stay and enjoy the sunset in Nungwi, we were never rush at anything thing. I do recommend this trip and any trip offered by The Sultan tours as they are so professional and hospitable.
