Book Now! Inquire Booking

From USD 36

Dolphin tour is situated on the southern point of the island, Kizimkazi fishing village is home to several schools of bottle-nosed dolphins and Humpback dolphins, which can often be sighted following a short boat trip from the village. If you are lucky, you may be able to swim quite close to the dolphins, which can be a very rewarding experience. We are doing this trip in the early morning. Kizimkazi is also the site of a 12th century mosque, the earliest evidence of Islam in East Africa, and is thus worth a visit for both natural and cultural reasons. Sometimes we may go for long searching for dolphins as they tend to move from one place to another.

The morning starts at Kizimkazi, formerly the capital of Zanzibar where the oldest mosque in East Africa still stands. This unique house of worship bears testimony to the early arrival of the Persians in Zanzibar’s south. It was built around the 12th century and to this day, with some renovation, the mosque is still intact. The renovation of the mosque was made possible with funding from the Embassy of the United States of America in Tanzania. You will have an opportunity to take photos at the mosque before boarding a motorized boat to set off for the dolphin search. On a great day, when luck is on our side, one can even swim with these beautiful mammals. The excursion also includes time for some great snorkelling; the waters in this area are full of little fish and great coral reefs.
