If you made a choice to dive on Zanzibar, Mnemba Atoll is obviously a must! It is the most famous Conservation area in Zanzibar. That is due to its crystal clear water, abundance of fish and colorful wall dives.
Mnemba is also famous for encounters with Common Dolphins. For some reason, Mnemba Dolphins really like our dive boat Kidude. They often swim right next to it, and so allowing us to jump in the water to snorkel with them.
On our way back from the dives, we slow down and pass close to the beautiful Mnemba Island, so you can take some great photos.

Protecting Mnemba Marine Park
Help us keep our Mnemba Park alive!
- Please avoid all physical contact with corals and marine life. In fact, the slightest touch can crumble sponges or remove the surface of corals. This is an unforgivable intrusion into the underwater world.
- Don’t litter the ocean. Even biodegradable items, such as banana skins and orange peel, can harm fish and marine mammals. Worse still are plastic water bottles, snack wrappers, cigarette butts and waste food.
- Take nothing out of the sea, except memories. Practice good buoyancy control, that is the key to enjoying a relaxed underwater encounter, while minimizing the risk of contact with corals or rock formations.
