TUMBATU - THE FORBIDDEN MYSTIQUE OF ZANZIBAR Private Transfer | Daily Departure in the morning Full day excursion including light packed lunch.  SPECIAL RUSTIQUE TUMBATU – MYSTIQUE OF ZANZIBAR This truly is a unique experience! Tumbatu is one of Zanzibar’s best kept secrets, as the vast majority is forbidden to set foot on the Island. To enter the island you need special permission from the elders of the community on Tumbatu. People call the Watumbatu – inhabitants of Tumbatu - aloof and unfriendly, just because they are living as a very close, self- supporting community. You won’t find cars or scooters and Tumbatu has only one road to walk on within the island, even though they are living on the island where in the 11th century the Shiraz built the first stone building in the entire Zanzibar Archipelago.  ENYOY THE SANDBANK  Leaving from Mkokotoni by boat you are heading to the fishing territories of the Watumbatu, the citizens of Tumbatu. One of the oldest fishermen within the Watumbatu will show out at sea, towards the sandbank of Tumbatu how they fish with nets and traps. Fishing is the major revenue of the island, though the Watumbatu don’t eat too much fish themselves. They trade with their fish in the nearby fishing village Mkokotoni. After you have witnessed the special techniques of the Watumbatu, which have the reputation of being the best sailors in the region you move on and head towards the village Jongowe, on the South of Tumbatu Island. LEAN THE VILLAGE'S LIFE  After arriving at the beach of Jongowe, you will see how the Watumbatu prepare their fishing nets, fish traps and also how they build and maintain their boats – all by hand! In a short walk you will arrive at the school of Jongowe and learn about who built the school and the importance of the huge and old Baobab trees to the community. You will see the difference between new and old sections of the village and you will visit the house of a fisherman’s family. We will show you the unspoken secrets of Tumbatu, as they are world famous for witchcraft. SPECIAL INFORMATION: As Tumbatu is a very special excursion and only possible based on the trust of the elders with their community of Tumbatu, we would like to provide a little extra information for the benefit of all, of which you should pay attention: Please note that you may have to walk knee deep in the sea, while entering the boat or reaching the island, depending on the tides. Therefore; ➢ You need waterproof shoes and clothes which can be wet, but no beachwear! The Watumbatu are very religious and do not accept our type of clothes. ➢ You have to wear a Kanga around your hip and for women a scarf/ kanga to cover your hair! NOT allowed is beachwear or shoulder free T shirts! Best is a wide trouser or long pair of shorts with a Polo Shirt or T Shirt! As we are almost the whole time on or near the sea without a shade, sun protection and a hat are very important! ➢ Sun protection and a hat/ cap Photographs are only allowed after you get the permission from our guide ➢ No photographs without permission Based on the type of the excursion, we are not able to serve you a normal lunch. Please note that we only provide packed lunch with soft drinks ➢ Only packed lunch with soft drinks As you probably heard, it is very rare to get permission for Tumbatu, therefore we expect you to follow the rules of the guide and show respect at any time. Many of the Watumbatu have never been on Unguja! ➢ Show respect to the Watumbatu at all times and follow the rules of the guide. Yes, Watumbatu are very special and different to people from Unguja! But if you want to learn the secrets and how they live, we ask you to follow the rules of your guide at all times and don’t show disrespect to this special community. ➢ Dress code - Kanga and scarf (for women).     read more read less
