This is the only way to truly appreciate the wonder of this masterwork of art.

The aquarium itself is a natural formation carved out from the coral bedrock by the erosion of millions of waves crashing against the shore. The depth of the water rises and falls with the tides providing a natural environment for its inhabitants.

While watching the white sails of the Dhows go by, you might wonder how these impressive boats are made. The Nungwi Boat Yard is a riveting (if you’ll pardon the pun) experience where you’ll meet the ship yard owner and learn how the dhows are built; from the sourcing of the wood to the joints used and how they are launched.

Please note that the boat building tour is only available as part of the Nungwi Village Tour.

Latest Reviews of this VIP tours

  • A fantastic tour of the best landmarks in Zanzibar Islands, the early start and cost may put some people off but it was well worth it. The History of Mkunazini Slave Market is very pity and disastrous! Because the guides were very informative we weren’t that disappointed. All the tour guides were very charming and informative.
  • This was amazing and surpassed my expectations. It was great to be able to see areas the public aren’t generally able to visit. Even more so, to be there in the Historical Stone Town, with only 10 people after hours in Nov, was absolutely breathtaking! Our guide was great too!
