Kizimkazi: an authentic fishing village

Sarabi means mirage. Every day around 6pm the sun sets over the island. For one special moment, when the sun touches the sea, the sea turns into a mirage creating an unforgettable sight. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing this amazing sunset with you. Karibu Sarabi!

We believe we have found a very special place and we want to share it with you. Kizimkazi is a village located on the southern part of Zanzibar. It is famous for the schools of bottle nosed and humpback dolphins that call Kizimkazi their home. We look forward to showing you all of Kizimkazi’s hidden gems.
