Safari Blue

Background Information

A full day excursion exploring the very beautiful Conservation area of Menai Bay, south-west of Zanzibar Island. Safari Blue’ departs from the fishing village of Fumba exploring from there the sandbanks, islands, lagoons and wonders of the Bay and the Indian Ocean in the comfort of our traditional dhows. On arrival, our guide will give you a short briefing about the program for the day and safety on board. The dhows are hand built from African mahogany, finished and maintained to the very highest standards. The most stunning natural creations must be the two pristine sandbanks of soft white sand which rise out of the turquoise blue of the Indian Ocean. We stop at one sandbank in the morning to snorkel over the coral reef and then to relax and swim. There we offer fresh green coconuts and a light snack. After snorkeling, if the tide permits, we move on to have lunch and spend the rest of the afternoon on a second sandbank near to the island of Pungume. The sandbanks have been described by many clients as the most idyllic places in the world
