kiwengwa caves

By Pongwe Tour & Safari
These caves are a part of ancient history of the Zanzibar Island. The locals would visit the caves to worship their ancestors, bringing gifts to the holy stones. From the hotel, it is short journey north to visit these caves, which have just recently been opened to the public. The stalagmites and stalactites have formed from water dissolving calcium carbonate from coral stones. The use of flashlights (torches) is necessary as the caves extend deep into the rock; however, the naturally formed holes in the ceiling of the caves let sunlight in, creating an exciting atmosphere. Another curios feature is the roots that have forced their way through the ground and look like electric wires connecting the ceiling to the bottom of the cave.

    Kiwengwa Caves
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    These caves are a part of ancient history of the Zanzibar Island. The locals would visit the caves to worship their ancestors, bringing gifts to the holy stones. From the hotel, it is short journey north to visit these caves, which have just recently been opened to the public. The stalagmites and stalactites have formed from water dissolving calcium carbonate from coral stones.

Another curios feature is the roots that have forced their way through the ground and look like electric wires connecting the ceiling to the bottom of the cave. After the cave exploration, there is a guided tour through the Kiwengwa – Pongwe Forest Reserve – the only remaining high coral rag forest area in the northern part of Zanzibar. As you walk, you may well catch a glimpse of some endemic species such as the red Columbus monkey, duikers (big antelope) and mini antelope. There are also 47 bird species and many butterflies
