Karibu is a Swahili word that the locals use to welcome us to their paradise, Zanzibar, the magical spice island in the Indian Ocean. Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portuguese, Omani Arabs, Dutch and British, were all here historically, leaving part of their legacy making Zanzibar's fascinating past.

Zanzibar is an archipelago of turquoise water consisting of two main islands, Unguja (better known as Zanzibar) and Pemba, surrounded by 51 smaller islands. Underwater forests of colorful coral reefs are home to thousands of different species of marine life, including sandbeds that are full of life. On Leven's banks  we can often observe barracuda and sailfish. Mnemba's clear waters allow excellent visibility between 10 and 30m, and you can see dolphins on almost every trip. Whale sharks can be seen during the months of January to March and October to December. Humpback whales make their migration through these waters during the months of August to October. In Wattabomi, dozens of turtles  can be viewed. It is also a good place to find guitar sharks that are often seen lying quietly on the sand, feeling the presence of divers fins to reveal the elegant swing of its long tail.

For those who love the little creatures, these reefs are full of nudibranchs of all shapes, sizes and colours. From the bright red Spanish dancer to astonishing species not found in any book. Another common resident in Zanzibar is the lionfish. This colorful creature is covered with long venomous dorsal spines that protect it from predators. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean remain generally low in phytoplankton production levels, which means that divers can enjoy excellent visibility and a great diving experience.
