What to expect

With its mangrove forests, seagrass beds, coral reefs, and biodiversity, you won't have run out of things to see in Uzi. You'll cross when the tide is low and set off on a guided tour into local heritage and culture at Uzi village, a rural Swahili village, and around. You'll see the locals do activities like weaving, carpentry, bee farming, and seaweed farming while learning about the sites.

The tour will bring you to Muyuni Village as well, where you'll get to know the lifestyle of the locals by spending some time in the village and you'll understand the importance of their traditions. Watch them bring ancient crafts to life as they introduce you to the art of rope making, basket weaving, and makuti plating.

After getting to know the community at the village school, you'll set off to explore the mystical Ngonga Cave. Witness a witchcraft healing ceremony in the underground hall, then wander the network of passages and tunnels with your guide. Along the way, you'll discover the history of the cave as a home for vampire bats and the spirits of the Muyuni people's ancestors.
