Safari Enquiry

A rarely visited corner of southwestern Zanzibar, Ras Kizimkazi offers a handful of quiet, laid-back lodges plus a pinch of the ultra-exclusive. The region’s two small villages lie a few kilometers apart.

Kizimkazi Dimbani is on the southernmost tip of the island, and the busier Kizimkazi Mkunguni is up the coast to the northwest.

Most of the region’s tourism revolves around dolphin excursions; the small and, in places, rocky beaches are undeniably beautiful but lack the pull of the island’s east coast, making it an ideal destination for an exclusive beach holiday in Zanzibar.

Highlights of Ras Kizimkazi

The village of Kizimkazi Mkunguni is the center of the region’s most popular tourist attraction – boat trips to see the resident bottlenose and humpback dolphins.

Full-day excursions can be arranged from Zanzibar Town or booked locally if you’re staying in the area. Raz Kizimkazi is a perfect beach holiday destination if you’re seeking adventure in Zanzibar.

Travel Tips for Ras Kizimkazi
  • There’s no guarantee that you’ll see dolphins on a tour – they’re wild creatures and rarely allow boats close enough for visitors to swim with them. 
  • To maximize your chances, visit between October and February, stay in Ras Kizimkazi itself and hire a boat from a local who’s happy to cruise all day. 
  • Be cautious of anyone offering guaranteed sightings. They’re likely to employ unethical methods to make good on their promise.
