Visit the neighbouring Chole Island where you will get to see how the locals live on a short tour through the village.
On this tour you can explore the ruins that have been overtaken by nature and see the Arabic and German influences, including a prison and customs house.
Your guide will take you for a walk across the island through the small villages and varied vegetation (including baobab trees) and show you where traditional Swahili dhows are built by skilled craftsmen using hand tools. Chole also acts as a sanctuary for the Flying Foxes (Fruit Bats) which your guide will help you to see sleeping in the trees during the day.
You will then go to a secluded sand bank for a local BBQ lunch and some time to relax! This tour takes about 5 hours.
