Excursions

Beside fishing and sport Blue Reef can arrange a lot of nice day-trips and excursions for you! Mentioned below is a selection, you can always ask us for specific wishes!

Sailing and snorkling

With our own boat “Umoja” we can take you out for a nice sailing trip over the lagune. During this trip you can snorkel and swim. You can also make a sunset or sunrising sailing tour, very romantic! When the tide is big enough you can also visit the reef and see how local people catch fish and octopus. This tour is also very nice for families!

Spice tour

Zanzibar is well known as the Spice Island of the east African region, and no trip to Zanzibar could be considered being complete without a visit to one of the various spice farms.

Jozani Forest and Zanzibar Butterfly Centre

Jozani Forest is known for its diverse monkey population being the only natural forest where you can find the Red Colobus monkey! There are different nice trails. The forest is a great place to encounter many indigenous varieties of flora and fauna like Blue Sykes’ Monkeys, Bush Pigs, Aders Duiker Antelopes, Elephant Shrews, Chameleons and numerous birds and butterflies. One kilometre to the West of the Jozani Park entrance is the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre. This enclosed tropical garden teaming with around a dozen species of butterfly. 5.5 km south of the park is Zala Park, another interesting nature reserve, this time for reptiles.

Diving

Zanzibar as a place for diving and snorkeling is amongst the most spectacular in the world having stunning coral gardens and more than 350 fish species recorded. The diverse aquatic life off the coast includes frequent sightings of turtles and dolphins, as well as occasional sightings of humpback whales and whale sharks!
Together with our local partner we can advise you about the best places to dive.
