Dive in Zanzibar, Tanzania

Africa is a continent of contrasts and Tanzania is no exception to the rule. Full of arid landscapes cooked by the scorching sun, the country opposes a wet coastline on the east coast (off the northern tip of Madagascar) bordered by the Indian Ocean. Amongst the numerous emerging areas not far from the shore (Pemba, Misali, Chumbe, and Mafia Islands), the islands forming the Zanzibar archipelago are particularly awesome for scuba diving.

Simply put, this is a true water paradise for all divers. Marine biology buffs and lovers of all fixed fauna (nudibranchs, seahorses, etc.) as well as fans of the “big and large”, you will find it here, what will fill your eyes with sparkle and fill your memory card with amazing snaps on your waterproof digital camera.

Zanzibar’s seabed with its unspoiled coral is considered the Indian Ocean’s most remarkable. All divers, all levels can come here to learn and enjoy a rich, diverse fauna. There are a number of shallow sites that are super safe and near the water’s edge. However, the most wow-factor dives are further offshore on dive sites exposed to the current. Here, you are guaranteed to bump into the predators, especially the gray reef shark, and the always-loved manta rays, swarming about year round with a peak from March to May.

Apart from diving, you can also enjoy the land fauna via a safari for instance. And don’t miss the famous Mount Kilimanjaro and take some time to take a stroll in the town of Zanzibar, full of rich heritage due to its cultural mixing and exchanges with Europe.
