VILLAGES TOUR

VILLAGES TOUR

Nungwi is a beautiful village on the northern most tip of Zanzibar, where the people are surrounded by the sea. Our village tour will give you a look at how this community sustains itself from the ocean. We will visit boat builders crafting the famous dhows that can be seen on fishing out at sea, we also include the fish market and aquarium and a chance to sample some of the days catch.
Nungwi Fish Market
The best time to visit is in the early morning when the fish market is in full swing – depending on the catch the previous night you might see Tuna, King Fish, Dorado and a variety of other large fish for sale. In the mornings local fishermen (and women) wade out to the edge of the coral reef to catch a number of different small sea creatures including squid, octopus, puffer fish and the occassional ray – their catch will be sold at the fish market throughout the day.
