Swimming with Turtles

Tour Overview

Experience the thrill of swimming with turtles in Zanzibar! In 1993, the community of Nungwi established a turtle sanctuary nestled by a picturesque natural tidal pool near the lighthouse. Since then, these majestic sea creatures have found refuge from the threat of hunting and consumption. Encounter turtles of various species and sizes as you explore the sanctuary. Fishermen who inadvertently capture turtles in their nets bring them here for protection, while turtle eggs discovered along the shore are carefully nurtured until they hatch. Every February, witness a breathtaking spectacle as locals, tourists, hotels, and dive centers join forces with conservationists to aid hundreds of hatchlings on their journey from the beach to the open sea. It's a momentous occasion that highlights the community's dedication to turtle conservation. After your unforgettable turtle encounter, unwind and soak up the sun at Kendwa Beach, making your excursion a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation.
