Mangroves – Michamvi Zanzibar

The Sup tour is a well organized tour that will pick you from your hotel and drop you afterward back again. The whole tour is a 3-4 hour trip in total, incl the transport to the mangroves and back. The only time that the mangroves are accessible is around high tide, for that we work with a set time schedule to have the most optimum advantage of the high water and to be able to glide over the roots from the mangroves ( else it will be too shallow).

For the whole family

The tour is for the whole family, so don’t worry if you’re not a fanatic water sporter or surfer. You can start easy on your knees and if you feel comfortable you can Stand Up. Small kids can stay on the front (up to 4 yrs) at own risk, kids from 8 years old can paddle by themselves.
The tour takes you around and in the mangroves, and you will see different small wildlife like birds, cabs and much more.

Our review

The SUP tour in the mangroves is something special. A sort of secret area where there are hardly any tourist or people at all. Glide on the SUP board through the mangroves over the cristal clear waters. Experience Zanzibar in a different way, The tour is for everybody, first timers on the board ( you can start on you knees) or more experienced boarders. the feel is so much different then being on the beach...try it yourself
