After you have had your exploring time the captain will be ready to bring you back to shore and your transfers will arrive. The next stop is the Nungwi Aquarium where you will be able to see turtles swimming in their rock pools. Mnarani aquarium, Mnarani meaning, place of the lighthouse’ in Swahili, is located at the northern tip of Zanzibar Island in the small village of Nungwi near the lighthouse that marks this landmark. The pond is a large, natural tidal pool in the coral rock behind the beach. It was originally set up to rehabilitate and study marine turtles that had been caught in fishing nets, and the project was developed to ensure that local baby turtles were also protected.
