The north coast is the dhow building capital of Zanzibar. Your drive to Nungwi will take you past fish markets, where you can see freshly caught seafood being auctioned. There's a stop at the ruins of an old Portugese settlement, where you guide will explain the history of the ruins and the Portuguese conquest of Zanzibar, dating back to 1497.

We will stop at the blacksmith and see the traditional way of making the tools for the construction of dhows. At the construction site, we will see the way dhows have been built for centuries and see how skilled craftsmen bend wood to create the dhows. Take advantage of the opportunity to try your hand at this unique craft.

Our next stop will be the Nungwi turtle sanctuary and aquarium where ailing turtles are nursed back to health and released into the ocean. We will also go on a guided tour of Nungwi village where mamas wrapped in kangas cook over firewood while smiling children play. Walk down to the beach where you can enjoy an optional lunch at one of Nungwi's popular restaurants and enjoy some free time sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling. As the day ends, witness one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world and watch the sky change its color as the sun sinks over the Indian Ocean.
