EXCURSIONS :: SAFARI BLUE"Menai Bay Conservation Area" Sail, snorkel, swim, sunbathe, explore, feast, observe, play… a Safari Blue day is packed with adventure. Menai Bay conservation area is scattered with isolated sandbanks, rugged island scenery, uninhabited islets, pristine marine life and crystal-clear turquoise waters.
Safari Blue is a full day trip and includes use of top quality snorkeling equipment with guides and instructors, ice cold sodas, mineral water and beer, a delicious Zanzibar seafood lunch with grilled fish and slipper lobster, gastronomic fruit tasting, coffee and Amarula liqueur. Safari Blue explores the Menai Bay Conservation Area, which is home to two different species of dolphins, the Indo-pacific humpback and the bottlenose. We are lucky enough to see dolphins on 85% of our excursions Safari. In the morning we set down on one of the beautiful sandbanks where one can relax, swim or snorkel.
We have plenty of good quality snorkeling equipment and our experienced snorkeling guides will show you the pristine coral reef, which teems with tropical sea life. Instruction is also available for beginners. After snorkeling cold drinks, fresh coconuts and local snacks. After snorkeling we go to Kwale Island where we have our "desert island" restaurant. The buffet lunch includes fish, slipper lobster, calamari, rice and sauces all served hot from the grill.
Our crew also prepares and presents a gastronomic fruit tasting with a large selection of delicious tropical fruits. Join our crew for a sail on an "ngalawa"- a local canoe with outriggers which has been carved from a single mango tree. As Safari Blue comes to an end and we return by traditional lateen sail, the full splendor of the African sunset reveals itself.
