Tanzania is generally known for its vibrant and world-class parks. In fact, the country is known for its unmatchable Safaris because it is home to big game and stunning tropical beaches. I actually flew from a safari camp in Tanzania in the morning and enjoyed an afternoon swim in the Indian Ocean. Planning for the Northern Circuit, Southern Tanzania’s wild parks, Western Tanzania’s remote parks, or the Coast & Islands is not a big challenge because the country is so vast. The Safari Blue trip uniquely defines the Menai Bay Conservation Area and its natural beauty.
Safari Blue gave me an opportunity to discover the best of Zanzibar right from the village of Fumba, a few minutes’ drive from the Stone Town beach hotel where I enjoyed some fabulous Online Casinos and Brokers. Fumba is a convenient location for travellers who are interested in viewing the outstanding natural beauty of the Menai Bay Conservation Area, which is rich in isolated sandbanks, unique wildlife, and rigged island scenery. Eco & Culture Tours is committed to ensuring that its customers get an enjoyable experience that is truly memorable while making a positive impact on the people around. The Safari Blue trip started from Fumba in South West of Zanzibar and we got an opportunity to see dolphins, the Menai Bay coral reefs, and sandbanks.
In the morning, we set down on a beautiful sandbank to relax while others swim. There are friendly snorkelling guides who showed us how to use the available snorkelling equipment and the tropical sea life. We enjoyed various local snacks and fresh coconuts throughout the day. After snorkelling almost all morning, we went for a buffet lunch at the “desert island” restaurant on the Kwale Island.
We had fish calamari sauces and rice served for lunch. The restaurant also prepares a culinary of delicious tropical fruits, delicious seafood, cold sodas, grilled fish, Amarula liqueur, mineral water, and beer. If the tide permits, you get to explore the natural lagoon in the afternoon on the island. We spent hours swimming in the lagoon that is surrounded by a mangrove forest.
We also enjoyed the traditional maritime boats and dhows that are hand-built and designed from African mahogany to the highest standards. The sailing boats are not only comfortable but also equipped with VHF marine radios, outboard engines, ladders for boarding, gas inflatable life jackets, and a first aid kit, so I felt safe all the way. Plus, Eco & Culture Tours holds marine and public liability insurance. The Safari Blue exploration offered us a rare opportunity to see the Indo-pacific humpback and the bottlenose dolphin species found in the Menai Bay Conservation Area. In fact, we are glad to have seen different species of dolphins in most of our pleasure trips.
MenaiBay has immaculate sandbanks that have been curved naturally by the sea and waves, and that is why it was designated as a Conservation Area since 1998. Join the sailing crew on a local canoe called “ngalawa” that has been handcrafted from a mango tree. We return to the Village of Fumba by lateen sail, as we finish the Safari Blue and the African sunset reveals itself. While you need to use private transport from your beach hotel to the village of Fumba and back, the Safari Blue is a sharing trip whereby tourists share boats and all the other activities on the Safari.
