BUBBLE BOAT

– PRIVATE GROUP SAFARI BLUE EXPERIENCE

Our ‘Bubble Boat’ – the same great Safari Blue experience as our normal tour but with your own boat. It’s our version of the tour for those who want to remain in their own social distancing bubble. It’s an unmissable day tour of the protected waters around the islands of Zanzibar for 2 or more people, just paying an extra $200 for the private use of the boat, on top of the standard tour fee per person. (NB. This is not the same as our private charter)

Sailing in one of our traditional Dhows, beautifully constructed from African mahogany by Zanzibari craftsmen, you’ll have the opportunity to see and feel the magic of the African Spice Islands up close and personal. Our tour is packed with activities for all tastes; so whether you want to unwind and watch nature or snorkel with tropical fish or feast on local delicacies, we have you covered!

We have been operating Safari Blue since 1995 and we are the only operator in Zanzibar licensed to use the name ‘Safari Blue™’. We are the original and the unmissable!
