Day 5: Blue Safari
This is absolutely different experience that someone must experience in Zanzibar. Thinks of Africa boat Safaris, it is something one might not resist to take, it comes to you & why not to go?.
The original and the best Safari Blue is a full day excursion using locally made traditional sailing dhows of between 8 – 10 meters in length. We currently operate 6 passenger-carrying dhows that are finished to the very highest standard and fitted with outboard engines, marine VHF radios, gas inflatable life jackets, sunshade, boarding ladder, waterproof bags and kit with DAN oxygen unit. We also have public liability and marine insurance.
The excursion starts at the fishing village of Fumba, 30 minutes drive from Stone Town. Fumba is situated in the southwest corner of the island and ideal starting point to explore Menai Bay, designated a Conservation Area. The bay has a number of beautiful uninhabited islands and sandbanks and is frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphin.
On arrival at Fumba clients are given a briefing on the day and a life jacket demo. We then board the dhowns and set off to explore the bay and find the dolphins. We are lucky enough to see dolphins on at least 85% of our trip.
Later in the morning we stop on a sandbank where we set up sunshades and fit the clients with snorkeling equipment. We have a large range of sizes and good quality equipment. Guides. Who can safely lead the snorkeling session and show points of interest, accompany the client. For beginners or those who are not confident swimmers, we have inflatable snorkeling vests and our guides can give tuition.
After snorkeling we offer fresh green coconut before we move to another sandbank for lunch. During the morning our catering boat has gone on ahead to prepare lunch which is served on teak picnic tables set up beneath smart canvas sunshades
Lunch is a traditional Zanzibar meal and includes a selection of grilled fish, slipper lobster, squid, rice, tarmarind and coriander sauces and barbecued chicken. A gastronomic fruit tasting follows with a selection of between 10 to15 different tropical fruits. Cold drinks are available throughout the day and includes mineral water, sodas and beer Coffee and Amarula liqueur are also served after lunch.
When the tide allows we visit a beautiful mangrove lagoon where it is possible to swim through the mangrove forest. We return to Fumba so please wear your swimming things under your clothes. We also advise clients to bring waterproof shoes for boarding the dhows and to bring towels, sunscreen and a spare T-shirt for snorkeling.

Like me, if what you know and hear about Zimbabwe is all negative stuff... I highly recommend taking a tour to the country with Inas and her team. You will be pleasantly surprised.. Hailing from Lebanon and calling Zimbabwe home , Inas and her company Silwane Tours does justice to the natural beauty, wildlife and much much more the destination offers. Zimbabwe tourism authority had 10% of the passion , commitment and know how of Inas and her team , Zimbabwe would seriously rival much more sought after Safari destinations in Africa..
