Baraka’s Turtle Aquarium is a rehabilitation center for injured turtles nestled in a cave, this natural tidal pool is where you are able to swim and feed these amazing animals. You will experience once-in-lifetime moments by swimming with the friendly turtles at the Baraka Natural Aquarium on Nugwi Beach in the north of Zanzibar. The aquarium is actually a small natural pond – a grotto, which serves as a sanctuary for the turtles. The conservancy receives turtles which have been accidentally caught in fishing nets, and gives them a chance to recuperate before being released into the open ocean again. In Baraka Aquarium they are also buying the turtles, caught by fishermen and they are releasing them back to the fresh ocean water in the lagoon. Join us in the north of Zanzibar, you can find one of the natural lagoon full of sea turtles. Use the unique opportunity to swim with sea turtles. During the visit you can also feed turtles with sea weed or just spend your time in the water. Its lovely to run your fingers over their shells and feel them next to you. There is plenty of food (sea weed) provided at the aquarium for you to feed the turtles. Also, you can take snorkelling mask to dive and watch them in their natural environment. The water can feel murky at certain points in the pond, but luckily, there is a shower on site. If you are not a good swimmer, you will have to make do with sitting by the edge of the pond since the water gets quite deep – up to 2 meters – so definitely we will bring a life jacket.
