What a relaxing site to see the beautiful beaches of Nungwi. Friendly staff with a big welcome upon arrival. My friend and I did the parasailing and to see the view you feel like you are living in heaven and never want to come down. We were very lucky, while we did the parasailing we got unexpected visitors from the... More

We booked a one-hour jet ski safari for a family 5 people aged 55, 52, 29, 26 and 25 (a total cost of $700!). So basically the idea was that the 5 of us on 3 jet skis (2+2+1) would follow a guide to an island, we would spend some 10-15 minutes there and come back. Sounds great on paper,... More

I though originally it was a bit steep but something I wanted to do so i paid out the money. On Arrival I was met by a gorgeous bubbly girl at reception that gave me a... More

I paid $40 as transport to and fro, StoneTown is an hour drive from Nungwi (free pickup and drop-off if based in Nungwi) in addition to the main fee of $100. The taxi arranged by the parasailing company picked me from my hotel promptly, the driver was quite friendly, he told me about all the landmarks and villages along the... More

We booked the parasailing and jetskiing together and it was 10% off. However there was a mix up and we couldn't do them on the same day. My boyfriend got really badly sunburnt and we had to reschedule the jet skiing twice. They were really accomodating and never made us feel a nuisance. The parasailing in particular was great and...

Had a fantastic tandem flight with our fearless 8 year old daughter. The crew were excellent and made us feel safe. View over the sea was brilliant and even saw dolphins/porpoises in the bay. Our son also had a go. The leg dip in the water at the end capped a brilliant experience. Our daughter wants to go again. That... More
