As adults, we concentrate most often on mundane things, such as paying the bills, working, getting a loan, and other aspects mainly related to money. However, this makes us forget the truly important things in life, for example, those you would put on a bucket list. Of course, we are talking about the most wonderful experiences possible, that simply fill your heart with joy and make you wonder why you didn’t try them sooner. One of the most relevant examples in this sense is represented by swimming with turtles.

Swimming with turtles is fascinating from numerous points of view, some more obvious, others less obvious. First of all, we are talking about the incredible connection between humans and animals, which is one beyond words, both literally and figuratively. Secondly, if you love animals, you will most certainly appreciate the interaction with these magnificent creatures who share their lives between water and land. Last but not least, this kind of excursion creates memories that will stay with you for a lifetime, both in photos and especially in your mind, and you will be able to tell them further to your friends, children, grandchildren, etc.

Swimming with turtles is one of the most intense Activities/Experiences we have in our portfolio, together with Mnemba snorkeling, Sunset Dhow cruises, and Kizimkazi dolphin tours. The time spent with the turtles is not limited to swimming itself, but also feeding them with seaweed, snorkeling with them, and watching them interact with each other, in their element. Thus, you will get to know them much better and you will make your dreams come true if you always wanted to meet the wild animals that you only saw until now on National Geographic or the Discovery Channel.
