Situated on the spectacular northeastern coast of Tanzania’s Unguja island, between the quaint coastal villages of Pwani Mchangani and Pongwe, Kiwengwa is best known for its scenic beach of glittering white sands, lapped by azure crystalline waters. Visitors can explore the local village, and enjoy a host of water-based activities including snorkelling, diving, kitesurfing, and boating. Sample the local flavours of Zanzibar’s unique cuisine, sip on a delicious cocktail at a beachfront bar, and discover the fascinating underwater wonderland that lies offshore. Visitors should be able to spot turtles, starfish, octopuses and seahorses quite easily. Animal lovers will also delight in the chance to visit the nearby Cheetah Rock Conservation Centre, which protects lions, zebras, and many other rescued animals.
