Nungwi is the name of the village at the northern part of Zanzibar Island. This part of the trip mainly focuses on Cultural village visit of the Nungwi Village, sight seeing and free time to relax at the white sand beach of the north. The best time to visit is in the early morning when the fish market is in full swing – depending on the catch the previous night you might see Tuna, King Fish, Dorado and a variety of other large fish for sale. In the mornings local fishermen (and women) wade out to the edge of the coral reef to catch a number of different small sea creatures including squid, octopus, puffer fish and the occasional ray – their catch will be sold at the fish market throughout the day.

Tour Overview:

NUNGWI VILLAGE VISIT & TOURS – With the man who knows everybody!

The tour starts with a walk out of the Hotel at 15:00hrs. Nungwi is a traditional fishing village no more than a 10-minute walk from the Zanzibari Hotel along the Beach (when the sea is at low tide) or 15-minute walk through the main road (when the sea is at high tide and cut you off from the beach walk).
Home approximately to 10,000 people. Nungwi has been a dhow (traditional fishing boat) boat yard for many years where local boat builders maintain their fishing dhows but also create new dhows which can take anywhere between 3-6 months to complete.
It is fascinating to watch boat builders using traditional skills which have been passed down over many generations. Until 1990 the population of Nungwi was still unfamiliar with tourism and was one of the last places on the Island to welcome tourists.

A guided walk tour of Nungwi starts from the Hotel and includes a visit to a small, local aquarium which houses sea turtles in a lagoon which is tidal.
Swim with the turtles and learn about the centers’ programmes to re-introduce green turtles back to the sea.
Visit the local dhow boat yard, fish market and learn how traditional houses are built from limestone before stopping by the local school to meet the school children (depending on time of visit). Despite tourism being so much a part of Zanzibar these days, Nungwi has managed to retain its traditional values and charm.
Your guide is a familiar face at the hotel. Visiting Nungwi with the guide is a real treat as it provides amazing insight as he is universally loved by everyone in the village and so can take you places other can not reach!

What people say about us
I did the tour with 3 friends. It was a total of 10 days. It was indescribable. Our guide is a great guy, you can tell that he has been doing this job for years. He was able to show us all the animals. Lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, even the rare cheetahs and leopards. If you have never been on safari, you should not miss this experience. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The lodges including service, equipment and service were also first class. Hence 5 stars.
