Marine Turtle & Kendwa Relaxation Tour

Tour Overview

In 1993 the villagers of Nungwi opened this turtle sanctuary in a large natural tidal pool near the lighthouse and since then these sea creatures have enjoyed a degree of protection from being hunted and eaten. You can see turtles of various species and sizes, If fishermen accidentally catch a turtle in their net, they bring it to the aquarium. Likewise, turtle eggs discovered on the beach are brought here to hatch. On a single day every February, a highlight of the year is when local people, tourists, hotels, and dive centers cooperate with conservationists to assist hundreds of hatchlings to survive their perilous journey across the beach and out to the open sea. Once after the tour, you will enjoy Kendwa Beach.
