Sunset Cruises

Sunset Cruises

Sunset Cruises are a popular activity in Zanzibar, Mafia or Pemba, as it allows you to travel on one of the local dhows, while exploring the coast line and watching the spectacular sunset.

The trips usually take place in the late afternoon and can last up to an hour. Making it the perfect opportunity to relax while enjoying some of the many beverages which the Island has to offer.

The guides on these tours are usually full of information about the island and are very keen to answer any questions you may have.

Naturally, sunset cruises are best from hotels on the island's west coasts, but it's also possible on some lake and river trips in the Selous, Kilombero or Lake Tanganyika.


  • We had a most wonderful safari--thank you! Salim and Yahaya were great. We'll be sure to suggest Wild Things to any friends who may be thinking of visiting Tanzania.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.

  • We had a really great vacation on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania and wonderfully facilitated by our driver/guide Salim who was really first class - a great representative of Wild Things.
