The original and the best “Safari Blue” is a full day excursion using locally made traditional sailing dhows of between 8 to 10 meters in length. Our dhows are finished to the very highest standards and fitted with outboard engines, marine VHF radios, gas inflatable life jackets, sunshade, boarding ladder, waterproof bags and first aid kit. 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 is an 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 bottle-nose dolphins. On arrival at Fumba, clients are given a briefing on the day and a life jacket demo. We then board the dhows and set off to explore the bay and find the dolphins. We are lucky enough to see dolphins on at least 85% of our trips.

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 clients. 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 coconuts before we move to our desert island restaurant for lunch. During the morning our catering boat has gone on ahead to prepare a delicious barbecue lunch, which is served on teak picnic tables set up beneath the shade of some tamarind trees.

Lunch is a traditional Zanzibar buffet and includes grilled fish, slipper lobster, squid, chicken, rice, tamarind and coriander sauces which are all served hot from the grill. A gastronomic fruit tasting follows with a selection of between 10 to 15 different tropical fruits. Cold drinks are available throughout the day and include mineral water, sodas and beer. Coffee and Amarula liqueur are also served after lunch. Later, we also offer the chance to sail in an “ngalawa” with our experienced crew. When the tide allows we visit a beautiful mangrove lagoon where it is possible to swim through the mangrove forest.

We return to Fumba by sail and arrive back at 5:30 p.m. in time to see the colorful African sunset. We advise clients that there are no formal changing facilities at Fumba so please wear your swimming things under your clothes. Toilets are available on the desert island. We also advise clients to bring waterproof shoes for boarding the dhows and to bring towels, sunscreen and a spare T-shirt for snorkeling.

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
