Menai Bay Sailing Trip from Zanzibar
Our full day excursion leaves at 09.30 from Fumba village. We return to Fumba at around 16.30, by traditional lateen sail.
We usually do see dolphins although of course as they are wild animals there are no guarantees but we estimate sightings on around 85% of our trips. A swim in a mangrove lagoon which is a private swimming pool surrounded by a mangrove forest and a stop on the sandbank are also highlights of the tour. Itinerary
