For a number of more or less obvious reasons, Africa isn’t considered the safest tourist destination by everybody, but this is an approach that characterizes those who don’t choose the services of a top travel agency. However, if you opted, for example, for Zanzibar Tour Guide, a company with over 18 years of experience, you’ll benefit from 100% security, as well as numerous tours & trip offers. One of the most appreciated of them is the Zanzibar dolphin tour, which is free of incidents if you don’t consider the possibility of getting a kiss from Flipper.
The Zanzibar dolphin tour takes you to Kizimkazi, a village situated in the south of the island, famous for its Mosque, one of the oldest Islamic buildings in East Africa, but especially for its friendly visitors, which you can see every morning. Of course, we are talking about dolphins, who like to hang out in the shallow coastal waters of the Indian Ocean, especially during the early hours. Both the bottle-nose, as well as the humpback species roam free in this area, together with their calves, but what makes this excursion so special is precisely the interaction between mammals and humans.
“We consider them some of the most majestic creatures on Earth, and during the Zanzibar dolphin tour, our tourists will be convinced of this. They will discover these precious mammals in liberty, in the safety of their own environment, and they’ll be able to swim with them, interact with them in different ways, as well as watch them being fed, take care of their young ones, rest, etc. At Zanzibar Tour Guide, we respect wild animals and we also urge those who come with us, on our trips, to do so”, a professional guide explains.
Although very easily accessible from Zanzibar City (the capital) since it’s only around 50 km away, the Zanzibar dolphin tour in Kizimkazi has a few particularities. In addition to the respect you have to show to the animals, you also have to wake up early, around 4.30 to 5.30 AM. Why? Because during the morning, the seawater is colder and this is when the mammals come to the surface. “If you love and respect animals, this excursion can be a truly life-changing experience for you & your loved ones”, the guide we talked to said.
Apart from the Zanzibar dolphin tour, the travel agency also organizes different other activities, both on the island, as well as on mainland Tanzania: tours/trips (Stone Town, Prison Island, Spice Farm, Jozani Forest, Nakupenda, The Rock Restaurant), safaris (Safari Blue, Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Mikumi), and activities/experiences (swimming with the turtles, snorkeling, fishing & cooking with the locals, dhow cruises – traditional wooden boats, etc.).
Zanzibar Tour Guide has very professional guides, who speak your language, and offers hotel transfer (pick up & drop off) for all destinations, including the trip to Kizimkazi, to witness the extraordinary world of dolphins.
