SNORKELLING FOR CONSERVATION
Pack your snorkel gear and a picnic and enjoy a half day boat excursion down to the islands of Njao or Fundo. Fins, snorkel and mask included in price. 60 usd /person.
This walk takes approx 20 mins. You will be accompanied by your service-fundi. No charge except for a $5 dollar entrance if you wish to climb the lighthouse and get the tour by the operator in charge.
The Ngezi is a protected forest reserve and is home to a variety of endemic bird species, the pemba sunbirds, green pigeon, and scops owl to name a few. It is also home to vervet and black colobus monkeys. The ranger will guide you on a 45 min walk through the forest. Cost: $20 per person including case study writer transport.
At low tide a sandbank protrudes to offer a walk on the purest white coral sand surrounded by azure blue waters. This excursion relies heavily on the tides, currents and weather conditions and is not always possible. A cooler box of fruit and refreshments is brought along. This is a 10 minute boat ride from the resort. $30 per person.
An Ngalawa is the traditional sailing vessel used by fishermen on the island. Leaving from the beach at around 5:00 pm, you will cruise along the shoreline over the reefs enjoying the sunset, the thrill of the sail and a refreshment. $15 dollars per person paid directly to the local fishing captain.
Your service-fundi would be honoured to take you on a walk to the nearby village to meet our friendly neighbours. A reading book or colouring books with crayons are always very much appreciated. No cost.
