We understand you are up for some fun after relaxing at beautiful Bwejuu beach. Ofcourse you did not come all the way out to Africa for nothing! So why not get to know a bit about the welcoming Zanzibari culture, learn how to cook up a Swahili dish or get into action and opt for a bike tour or some kitesurfing lessons while you are on the island? There are so many places to discover. Just let us know what you are up to and we can arrange everything for you. Like they all say over here, hakuna matata....No worries!
Ocourse you can hire a driver and drive out to your destination of interest. But riding a bike gives you the opportunity to see a lot more of the surroundings at your own pace. Why not get some insight on the historical background of old Stone Town on one of Blue Bikes Zanzibar tours? Or meet the local farmers during the organic farm tour?

Swim in a cave
Kuza Cave is a 50 metre round sink- hole in the middle of a small jungle in Jambiani. Cross a small bridge and walk down a few stairs to enter an underground oasis.
