The best $10 spent on Zanzibar. Absolutely magical experience. Don't be put off by the entrance. Uncommercialized & so peaceful. Make sure you have swimwear, snorkelling mask (although you can rent there) and an underwater camera if you can. We loved it and could have...More

So lovely, beautiful creatures. So peaceful and quiet time to spend with these beautiful animals. The kids had an amazing time swimming and feeding the turtles. We could spent hours there.

This place isn’t big but they do great work with the local turtle populations. Each year they release the turtles (which others don’t). You can feed the turtles here but not swim with them which was important to us. Lovely way to spend an hour

I’ve passed through the door and it was scary. Not worthily to spend money here. They should use the money cleaning the beach instead
