    Very good hotel. Good food. Good people. I will come again. If you want a tour you can contact in advance Marco Polo Muhammed Ali. Best guy ever. You can find him as well on the beach of Royal Zanzibar. Here is his number: +255 772 337 329

    Unique experience with animals (if you love them, you have to visit!). A lot of tourists, but big space. Downside: the water looks quite dirty.

    Not on Nungwi Beach. You can take a local taxi for about $10 roundtrip from the beach area. About $7 and you can swim with the turtles, which are being rehabilitated.

    The chameleons are very interesting and friendly and the owner is very passionate and knowledgeable about the chameleons. We got to touch the chameleons and have them climb on us and also got to see them eat a grasshopper

    We had a lovely experience at Baraka Turtle Aquarium. It's quite busy with tourists. The guides there are helpful and it generally felt safe.
    They have changing rooms and outdoor showers to use in case visitors want to change before and after swimming in the lagoon with the turtles.

    The only negative is that there doesn't seem to be any enforcement of ground rules regarding swimming in the lagoon with the turtles. There is a sign with the basic rules but some visitors were not following them. I think its a shame because although the turtles seem accustomed to people swimming with them, some visitors were screaming and thrashing around in the water. This can be stressful for the animals and I don't think its very fair. If people are frightened or worried about making swift movements that could hurt the animals - they should not enter the water. It is just as nice an experience to see them and feed them from the bank/steps without getting in. I think it would be better if someone enforced the rules.
