Fumba is the starting point for the „Blue Safari“ trips, the area is perfect for snorkeling.
The small village Kizimkazi has the largest baobab tree on the island, the oldest mosque and a beautiful coastline with great rocks.
The Kizimkazi Mosque is believed to be the oldest Islamic building on the East African coast, constructed in the 12th century by settlers from Shiraz, Iran under the order of Sheikh Said bin Omar and rebuilt in the 18th century.
The dolphin trips start from Kizimkazi. There is a chance to see the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins or the bottlenose dolphins. The area is also well-suited for deep sea fishing.
