From the stables, we head to Nungwi main beach and start our beach ride beside the Z hotel. From here we can head south towards Kendwa beach. We will pass some of the biggest and most luxurious hotels on Zanzibar whilst we walk along the best beach with the clearest water on the island. On some of the most deserted parts of the beach, we can trot and canter for those who are able or keen to try. After about half an hour we return along the same section of the beach but walking into the shallow waters of the ocean. This is the horses favourite part and often they will stop to splash themselves and the rider. Alternatively, our morning ride could take you to the beaches North of the Z hotel, including Nungwi village beach. This ride is a little busier and takes in a cultural element. Village children will often follow the horses singing “farasi farasi” which is Swahili for a horse. Now it is time to go and see sea turtles in Zanzibar with admission to two conservation destinations in Nungwi. At Nungwi Natural Aquarium, you’ll have the chance to watch the turtles swimming in a natural hatchery pond. Nearby Mnarani Marine Turtles Conservation Pond is home to green turtles and a community-based effort to protect the native species.
