Flow with nature...

Kayak Zanzibar offers professionally guided kayaking tours throughout the Menai Bay Conservation Area, Menai Bay islands, and Jozani Forest. Experience mangrove forests dense with wild birds and monkeys, uninhabited tropical islands with white sand beaches, dolphins, and turtles. We arrange tailor made trips to suit your needs and include airport or hotel pick-up and drop-off.

At Kayak Zanzibar your comfort and safety is guaranteed. We ensure the tour you embark on works seamlessly – including the timing of the trip according to the tides and currents.  Our kayaks, paddles, and life vests are top quality. The kayaks are specially designed touring boats made of fiberglass by PaddleYak Kayaks in Cape Town, South Africa. 

Menai Bay Conservation area is not only perfect for the marine life it supports, but also due to its location on the west coast of the island, where it experiences less wind. It is a Kayaker’s playground and more. We are closely connected with the community, so your kayaking experience in Zanzibar will be as authentic as it gets, away from the tourist radar. We provide glamping style accommodation, where you will be comfortable, but still feel you are in the wild.

A magical experience

We rented kayaks from Tirika Beach Lodge and took a leisurely paddle out through the crystal clear waters. Shortly after leaving, it started drizzling while the sun was still out, cooling us off. The light was spectacular and the scenery was magical! Will be returning again.

Epic kayak adventures

Tirika Beach Lodge lived up to its name, and is now the place I'll dream of when wishing to get away from it all. This enclave of warm waters and people not only dishes up epic kayak adventures but also the best dhow watching you can imagine. I can't wait to come back!

I will definitely be returning

I had such an amazing time here! We kayaked from the beautiful main camp set amongst mangroves, beautiful wild beaches and wooden fishing dhows, Oh and lots of coconut trees! There are a number of beautiful islands and sand bars you can paddle to and camp out on over night. I will definitely be returning for a longer stay next time with friends and family! It exceeds all expectations.
