Heart island? Mnemba Island Tanzania
photo by Eric Lafforgue


The green forests, which are home to the Zanzibar suni antelope and filled with butterflies, will for sure give you the impression that you have found heaven on Earth. This small, private island (owned exclusively by Conservation Corporation Africa) that arises from the waters of the Indian Ocean has plenty to offer. It's the best place to snorkel in Zanzibar and if one of your childhood dreams is to see whales and dolphins in their own habitat, now it's your chance. And even more exciting and thrilling, you can swim along with whale sharks, the world's largest fish. This is one of the few places in the world where you can do this. This is also the place where the endangered green turtles live.
