Sandbank Picnic

Experience the way Livingstone felt discovering untouched land and sail away with us to sandbanks around the magnificent island of Un­guja, Zanzibar. Come on board  our traditionally crafted dhows, put your feet up and allow our staff to pamper you as the Sultans of Zanzibar were once upon a time.

We set sail to find an untouched sandbank an hour away from Stone Town. Swim in the crystal clear blue water around the  sandbank and snor­kel to discover a whole new underwa­ter  world  filled with marine life and corals of brilliant colours. Tables  are set out on the golden sand and a five star seafood lunch extravaganza, pre­pared by the talented chefs from the Zanzibar  Serena Inn will await you. After lunch relax on the sandbank listening to the hush of waves lapping against the shore o r  discover more underwater life around it and listen to stories from  our crew about sailing the seven seas.

Then sail off to Prison Island. It is now home to a tortoise  sanctuary, the prison ruins and a hotel. Watch the gi­ant tortoises  shuffle  through the trees, with the patience that old age brings. We will slowly sail back to Stone Town, after a day of relaxation and fun. This excursion is suitable for any­one, from those who wish to com­pletely relax to those who want adven­ture and excitement...Karibu onboard with us for a day!
