This tour is the perfect option for sea lovers, and those who would like the opportunity of experiencing the sea and sea creatures in a unique way. This tour is in fact not only about a traditional boat trip or swim, as you will be able to do more than that.
One of the main attractions of this tour is the 200 year old baobab tree. Many try to climb this tree so as to try to reach the top and enjoy the spectacular views from up there. Within its hollow trunk there are also coconut crabs living, so you might even be able to see one of these gigantic crabs.
The Safari Blue trip starts from Fumba the perfect starting point to explore Menai Bay, an official Conservation Area. Home to beautiful uninhabited islands, this area is stunning and frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins.
On arrival at Fumba, clients are given a briefing on the Safari Blue adventure where dolphins are sighted on approximately 70% of trips. The anchor is dropped at Kwale sandbank where sunshades are set up and guests have the chance to go snorkelling in the coral reefs assisted by the guides. After snorkelling, guests are offered refreshments to whet their appetite 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, octopus, french fries and rice with a sampling of tropical fruits in season.
After lunch, you can sun bathe, snooze or visit the beautiful mangrove lagoon where depending on the tide you can laze by taking a swim in the warm waters of the lagoon. For the more adventurous guests there is an opportunity to sail in an “ngalawa” – a local outrigger canoe. After this it’s back to Fumba around 5:00pm.
