Visit the Village and Mvuleni Ruins

Mvuleni Ruins are situated just to the south of Fukuchani, on the other side of the road. These ruins are in fact thought more likely to Swahili in origin than Portuguese.

Visit and Swim at Mnarani Natural Aquarium

Hawksbill turtles have traditionally been hunted around Zanzibar for their attractive shells, and green turtles for their meat. The project was established in 1993. You'll also get a change to swim while on tour.
