Nothing rounds off a tropical island holiday quite as nicely as a day of snorkelling, lazing and eating on a private, uninhabited island

One of the highlights of a trip to Zanzibar is setting sail in a traditional dhow. But this particular dhow trip is rather special.

It departs from Fumba Beach Lodge and sets off to explore Menai Bay, an official conservation area. Menai Bay consists of many uninhabited islands, all of which are absolutely breathtaking. The area is also frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins. Dolphins are sighted on approximately 90% of trips.

More on Zanzibar Safari Blue

Anchor drops at the Kwale sandbank, where sunshades are set up and travellers have the chance to go snorkelling in the coral reefs, assisted by the knowledgeable guides. After snorkelling there are delicious refreshments to enjoy before heading back to Kwale Island for lunch under the tamarind trees. 

Drinks are served throughout the day and lunch is a buffet of grilled fish, lobster, calamari, chicken and rice, with a sampling of tropical fruits in season.

After lunch, it's time to bathe in the sun, enjoy a little snooze or visit the beautiful mangrove lagoon where, depending on the tide, travellers can take a swim in the warm waters of the lagoon. The more adventurous at heart can join the crew and sail to a ngalawa (a local outrigger canoe). After this it's back to Fumba around 5:30pm.
