On this excursion, we’ll shuttle you back and forth from your hotel to the Jeep Safari starting point, Mwinyi Mkuu Palace, where you will take over your jeep after a short briefing and some formalities. Depending on the tide, you’ll be first guided from here either to Uzi Island or to the quarry.
Uzi Island is one of the biggest in the Zanzibar Archipelago and can only be reached by car, crossing a beautiful mangrove forest on the coral road that only appears at low tide. Because of this, only nature will decide if you will explore the island – and enjoy your 3 course picnic lunch – before or after the quarry’s fun drive.
The quarry will probably be the most adventurous part of the day: our obstacle track in this powdery, dusty quarry will allow you to really rock your 4×4 like a proper rally pilot!
Our last stop will be at the Bi Khole Ruins, where you’ll visit the almost forgotten residence of a mystical princess. On this beautiful site, you will enjoy a restoring coffee and tea break and a final refreshing swim in the Indian Ocean.
MWINYI MKUU PALACE:
Mwinyi Mkuu means Great Chieftain.
Before the arrival of the Omani Arabs, Zanzibar was ruled using the Mwinyi Mkuu system.
You’ll see the remains of the palace built by the greatest Mwinyi Mkuu that ever ruled.
BI KHOLE RUINS:
Bi means “lady’ in Swahili. Bi Khole was the daughter of the 1st Sultan of Zanzibar. You will visit the remains of her estate.
She is rumoured to have planted a mango tree for each one of the lovers she killed.
Drive through the ocean to get to Uzi island, located in the Menai Bay Conservations Area.
Here you’ll see many ongoing conservation projects carried out by the locals and thereafter a delicious picnic.
