Nungwi is the one of the most popular places for diving on the island of Zanzibar. Although there are only 3 major reefs, most dive shops arrange diving out to Mnemba if you get tired of the local reefs.

Leven Bank

Max Depth: 40m
Due to the strong currents this is only for experienced divers. In our opinion this is the best reef off the island of Zanzibar. What makes it so attractive is the array of reef and pelagic fauna which includes Guitarfish, Tuna, Moray Eels, Barracuda, Dolphins, and White Tip Reef Sharks. There is a huge variety of coral with clusters of Honeycomb and Pillar Coral.

Hunga Reef

Max Depth: 20m
The reef is ideal for beginner divers and has a large variety of reef fish amongst some very well preserved coral. Large schools of Unicorn and Surgeonfish can be seen and the occasional Barracuda and Reef Shark.


Max Depth: 20m
