Ever wondered next to humans who are the Earth’s second most intelligent creature? It’s the beautiful and friendly dolphins. Of the series of the many “first time” experiences you can have in Tanzania, swimming with the intelligent dolphins would be tough to match. And the perfect place to experience such a profound moment would be on Zanzibar island, which has the largest number of dolphins in Tanzania.
Tick dolphin swimming off your bucket on Zanzibar dolphin tour by heading to the small fishing village of Kizimkazi, on the southern part of Zanzibar. The picturesque village is home to several schools of bottle-nosed and humpback dolphins. The shy mammals which are officially protected by the 420 km2 Menai Bay Conservation Area, are the main touristic attractions of the island. And if you really mean business then get on a boat first thing in the morning riding on the turquoise waters when it is cool as the hot sun drives the dolphins deeper into the water making it difficult to spot them. And if conditions permit you can encounter or swim with a pod of dolphins in their habitat and hear their sounds and have an abiding experience of a lifetime.
Just remember not to chase them. Let them come to you!
