Pungume Island

About the tour

Experience the beauty of the Indian Ocean on this unique deserted island tour. 

Combine sunbathing, snorkelling and exploring an uninhabited island with delicious seafood BBQ and a boat ride through the mangrove forests around Uzi Island.

The tour begins in Kizimkazi, a very traditional fishing village at the very south of Zanzibar.From there you will embark on a 40-minute boat ride out to the beautiful Pungume Sandbank, where you can swim, sunbathe and relax before snorkeling at the nearby coral reef.

After snorkeling you will sail to Pungume Island, where you can spend your day basking in the sun, swimming and exploring the almost untouched island. Only local fishermen come to stay here!


While you are enjoying yourself, your captain will prepare a fresh seafood BBQ, consisting of grilled lobster, prawns, fish fillets, octopus, calamari served with chapati, Swahili salad, rice and a tasty coconut sauce. You can enjoy the delicious lunch in the shade from the big baobab trees.

On your way back to Kizimkazi, you will pass a unique mangrove area.

If you are lucky you may spot dolphins!
And when the right season – even humpback whales!
