“Mnarani Turtles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Nice to see how the local community is trying to support nature. A nice and easy 30 minute visit well worth it and not to expensive. Keep it in shillings and you are safe. Good job guys and girls.

“Excellent local initiative...turtles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Don't negotiate on the entrance fee...these guys need every Shilling to run this project. It's a quite basic natural aquarium where Duli and his colleagues treat and help turtles to increase in population in the area. The knowledge of the staff is amazing. The project is also supported in small scale by volunteers / practicants from Germany and Sweden which seems to do also some kind of fund-raising. It's really worth while seeing and supporting the Mnarani Marine Turtles...but don't expect a Florida like Marinepark...it's Africa

“Kids liked holding the sea turtles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Kind of a run down place, but we went for the sea turtles and the hands on experience was worth it. The local guide seemed very knowledgeable and took his time to also show us the other tortoise exhibits there
