After breakfast your guide will be ready at the hotel lobby to take you to Jozani Forest! Here, you will have wonderful photo opportunities and sightings of the rare creatures living in the forest normally easy to view on the pathways. Our guides are also naturalists and nature lovers who have a wonderful time in the nature reserve therefore expect a lot of information. At jozani you will also visit the Mangrove swamp and walk around the Mangrove forest. After lunch you will have some free time as you head back to stone-town. You can allow anything random to come around!
Day 3: Snorkelling
After break fast your guide will pick you up and transit to Matemwe beach where you will take a 15-minute boat ride. As you aproach it you will see an island surrounded by more than 10 miles of stunning reefs that create a sheltered lagoon. Our boats normally make a mini-diversion in search for dolphins shall you be lucky you will see them and swim with them. Thereafter, you will proceed to snorkeling where with just few feet of water you will start to see different rear marine creatures! You will then relax by the beach then have fruits and water. Later on you will start leaving heading back to Nungwi.
Day 4: Swimming with Dolphins
The dolphin tour is best very early in the morning. In the afternoon as the sun rises, sea water tends to become warm, therefore dolphins dive deeper into the sea bottom to escape heat.
Although dolphin-spotting is a popular activity, sightings aren’t guaranteed 100%, and actually managing to swim with dolphins is a rare occurrence, like with other wild animals spotting dolphins require time and patience as they are not confined in a cage or a zoo, they are in their natural environment. Dolphin trips last two to three hours. Thereafter, you can take free time to enjoy the beach and make random plans!
