Not a nice place.
Jul 2021 • Couples
This is not a sanctuary. This is a money making tourist trap and quite simply filled with posers taking the best shots for their social media. There is NO care for the turtles at all. People picking them up above their heads, kissing them, constantly touching them. If this was about the care of the animals, none of these things would happen. If I could pay to release the turtles back to the ocean I would. Poor things do not deserve the treatment here. Any genuine animal lovers would be horrified at this place.

Interesting but small
Jul 2021
I wouldn't say it's a must-see place. When you are in the area and you like turtles it's interesting to visit. You can see baby turtles and big turtles. We didn't swim in the pond because it looks quite dirty but we fed the turtles and talked to the volunteer who works there. She was very nice and informative.

I enjoyed my swim with the turtles! I got "kissed" or bitten by three turtles but it was a nice experience. A guy there took all my pictures and videos and I am so happy I met him lol He took great pictures and video of me. I recommend!!! $10 to get in

Go See the Sea Turtles
Jun 2021
This is a very nice thing these curators are doing to help ensure the survival of the Green Sea turtles. You can wade in with the larger turtles. Some are quite large.

Uninteresting and unethical
Apr 2021 • Friends
It may have been different years ago when this place was created, but it has definitely become a highly unethical and uninteresting visit. Turtles are excessively touched and fed in a dirty pond, by tourists who come with the purpose of taking selfies while swimming with them. Explanations we received from our guide were minimal. Despite the fact that tourists pay USD 10 each, the place is not well maintained at all. It's quite sad visit...

Worth A Visit
Mar 2021
If you're in Zanzibar, I'd say this place is worth a visit. Not sure where else you can swim with turtles in a pond. Price was $10 per person. If you needed snorkeling gear, you had to pay extra for it. The staff had attitudes. The turtles were cool. We spent about 40 minutes there. It got crowded, they should probably limit the crowds. The water was dirty.

You can swim with turtles of all sizes
Feb 2020
There are many turtles of all sizes caught, it seems, in that little cave-like glove and more or less captive outfits. They are friendly, although some are very large

it s a must
Aug 2020
I think that is is a must to go to Mnarani Marine Turtles Conservation, as to begin because with the money of your ticket you will help the conservation center,then because you will be able to see something unic.It is anatural pool of sea water where you will be able to see so many marine turtles.I think that it is a so sweet experience.I m 57 years old but I loved to feed the turtles and to play with them, I was able to swim in this natural pool with the turtles

It was very dirty, small,smelly and unpleaseant pond. Turtles are being feeded too much. Not worth visiting.
