Imagine yourself sailing near the coast of the vibrant city of Dar es Salaam. Like clockwork and island starts to appear, rising from the ocean’s depths. We want to introduce you to the incredible Fungu Yasini Island, also known as the Dar es Salaam Sandbank.
Fungu Yasini Island is a hidden gem in nature. It only appears when the tide is low, and there are no plants or trees on it. You have just a few hours during the day to enjoy it, making it perfect for a relaxed picnic or a quick stop to take in its unique beauty. It’s like having your own secret island retreat.
Under the water, there’s a whole other world to discover. You will find seagrass beds and coral patches, creating a colorful underwater home for marine life. Snorkelers and nature lovers will have a great time exploring it.
Fungu Yasini Island, also called “Kisiwa cha Fungu Yasini” in Swahili, is a protected place. No one lives there, so it’s like nature’s special playground. It’s all part of the Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve (DMRS). Fungu Yasini Island is a secret world just waiting for you to explore during your catamaran cruise..
Join us at Camille’s Culinary Cruises and take this unique chance to experience the beauty of nature let us take you on a journey to Fungu Yasini Island. It’s a hidden paradise, a quiet oasis, and a breathtaking natural wonder.
