Before I get into details about our perfect day, I want to strongly recommend you only go with the *original* Safari Blue. Other guests at our hotel went with a 'different one' and told us we overpaid (we paid... More

Safari Blue starts from Fumba at 9:30. You can snorkeling or stay on boat. If it is your first time, staff will give you a short training. Later lunch. A lot of very good food and you can drink as much as you want. Excellent adventure. Really worth seeing. Very well organized. Delicious food. Very helpful staff,

You are picked up at the hotel - on schedule. The team keep you fed & hydrated through out the day. The snorkeling spots are really good. The sand bank experience is very unique & lunch was delicious. I even hurt my knees & the team were at my aid in seconds with some antiseptic ointment.

The Safari Blue day-trip was one of the highlights of our holiday - the combination of dhow sailing, snorkeling, swimming, dolphin spotting, seafood feasting, fruit tasting and mangrove forest exploring made this the ultimate all-in-one excursion showcasing the best of Zanzibar!
