Day 1:           Ilboru Safari Lodge, Arusha   


The name Tanzania conjures up images of wildebeest stampeding across vast savannah, rain forests teeming with monkeys and birdlife, and great plains brimming with legions of game. All of these natural wonders and more are on offer in this exceptionally diverse African nation. Visitors typically visit Tanzania to partake in at least one of the four well known Tanzanian tourist experiences: a relaxing seaside vacation on the picturesque island paradise of Zanzibar, an underwater tour of some of the world’s most renowned dive sites around the gorgeous Spice Islands, a safari adventure in some of Africa’s most impressive game reserves, or a hiking excursion around Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. Whichever of these incredible holidays you choose, you will undoubtedly be welcomed by some fabulously friendly and peaceful inhabitants who, despite being divided into 120 different ethnic groups and cultures, live in harmony with one another and provide some of the most wonderfully exotic local cuisine you could imagine. With all of this diversity on offer, the most difficult part of your Tanzanian holiday experience is likely to be deciding where to go!


Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania – nestled below Mt. Meru and close to Mount Kilimanjaro. From Arusha there are options to head  to Lake Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks and from there it’s a short trip to the Serengeti. Arusha was built by the Germans as a centre of colonial administration because of the temperate climate.

Morning greetings

Our professional and friendly team look forward to helping you get ready for your days diving in Zanzibar. Once you have been sized up for equipment, we head down to our jetty to board our boat. Here in Zanzibar the tides vary greatly, so our method of boarding may also differ. If the tide is low we will take a short walk down our beautiful beach to board. This is dependent on the tides the day you dive. Transport for anyone with impairment in mobility can be arranged.

On Our way…

Our boats leave in the mornings at 8:30am for two dives at two different locations around Mnemba Atoll. Our staff will help you to board the boats safely, ready to visit the best dive sites in Zanzibar. The trip to the first dive site takes approx. 25 minutes.

First dive

Your dive guide will help you with safety checks before entering the water and provide a dive briefing. The dive time is roughly 50 minutes, although this will depend on your air consumption.

Surface interval

To make the most of your diving in Zanzibar, the surface interval is spent on the boat. This allows you to take in the beauty of Mnemba Atoll and it’s turquoise waters. Tea, water, fruit and cake will be served. You can catch some sun rays on the front deck or relax in the shade whilst enjoying your break. Your dive guides will get everything ready for the second dive for you.

Zanzibar Dive Seasons

Diving in Zanzibar is good all year round, but sea conditions do vary from one season to another.

March / October-November

The best months to dive in Zanzibar. The weather is good, visibility excellent and the marine life as rich and varied as ever.

Rainy season in Zanzibar- underwater the conditions are great, but the surface can be rainy and windy.

June – September (Kusi – wind from the South)

A bit windy, but conditions are still good
