3# Experience from our new staffmember

Zanzibar. A place to let your soul take a walk. White sand beaches laying on the coast like they are peacefully sleeping, only being waked up by the ocean, whispering stories from places thousands of miles away – wave after wave. Like protective parents palms are disseminating their big leaves over your head, to momentarily shield you from the sun.

In a couple of weeks a lot of things happened in and around the mangroves; things that lifted the Stand-up Paddling Tour to a whole new level. First and foremost a Makuti changing room was built to prevent countless white butts being presented to civilians. The two part changing room gives you all the comfort you need to change your clothes to a sporty SUPer outfit.

Being in Zanzibar and explore the rich cultural heritage of the capital Stone Town is as much part of this once in a lifetime experience as enjoying the phenomenal beaches of the island. Located on the East-coast of Zanzibar in an area called Michamvi, we offer for those who are looking for some activities during their stay a unique Stand Up paddle experience through the mangroves.

Early risers prefer to watch how the sun appears on the horizon and the nature awakens while others like to combine this relaxing body workout in a beautiful scenery with getting a tan, while others in turn like to feel the cool ocean breeze during our late afternoon sunset trips. Our driver Idris, who is always right on time, will pick you up at every hotel of the surrounding areas such as Paje, Bwejuu, Jambiani or Makunduchi and bring you to the mangrove area in Michamvi. There you will be received by our local tourguide who goes by the name ‘Supermario’ and grew up in that area, thus can answer you every questions possible regarding the mangroves and all living things in it. Part of this beautiful yet adventurous experience is our way to the office which includes a swim in the sea and a walk through the bush. After being equipped with your board as well as your paddle and followed by some instructions and tips of... read more
