Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews
We had been to Fumba before and found it exactly the same! We like it because it's quiet and the staff and service are excellent. We had a whole day dhow trip for Penny's birthday and I tried snorkelling for the first time and found I was pretty rubbish at it but it was great fun. However, we had to walk from the boat on our return to the beach at Fumba and Pennny trod on a sea urchin which went through her boat shoe - so, clients be warned that you need sturdy sandals or a boat shoe with a thick sole if you do a dhow trip!
