    Our hotel Melia Zanzibar (Kiwengwa) arranged for us (at our cost) a sunset sail on a catamaran around Nungwi for 5 hours inclusive of a five course dinner, bottomless wine :-D and transfers. The experience was very memorable. Only regret is we did not get to Nungwi earlier to explore the curio market.

    Turtles are so fun!! I had a blast but would have liked a little more education. You can swim with them and they give you sea weed to feed them as well

    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

    Out of curiosity, I went to ScubaCaraibe in Nungwi to find out about diving. A great welcome from the whole team, the manager is concerned to make progress in the best conditions ! My Instructor Camille Aka Millie passed on to me her passion for theory, diving techniques, underwater fauna and flora. Millie was very effective with a personalized teaching to my facilities and my difficulties, all with a lot of rigor on safety, the will to make benefit from all the underwater wonders that we encountered and all in learning the benevolent respect for the underwater fauna and flora.
    Thanks also to Troy, the divermaster who also helped me in my learning.
    Successful mission from ScubaCaraibe because I want to continue diving now thanks to obtaining my PADI Open Water Diver certification !

    I had a lovely experience at the Zanzibar
    Horse Club. The stables look good and the horses are very well taken care of. I booked the 2 hour riding tour and was going by myself as my travel companion is not experienced. Once I got there, there were two other people who came along on the ride together with two guides. The guides noticed quite quickly the other two people were not experienced enough so we split up in two groups. Jessica guided me and my horse Sultan. She let me trot and gallop over the beach and the beautiful sandbanks. She even managed to make a video and some photos so I will be taking my memories home with me to show. The scenery is just lovely. I could highly recommend to book a horseriding tour, you will not be dissapointed!

    The instructors are awesome, the gear is great, the wind is consistent, onshore, at low tide learning the water start is easy, the island is wonderful.
