One of the best days in my life! The colours, the coral reefs... the whole experience was magical from beginning to end. The staff were attentive and nothing was a problem for them! Highlight was seeing the angelfish, stingray and a giant turtle! The food was also wonderful and a great chance to experience Swahili food and culture! Thank you to all of the team Louise x

Amazing! Many thanks to the beautiful people who treated us ten points, the care and respect with which they are handled is spectacular. They take you to the best places and at all times are attentive to your needs. As end of trip a meal from another planet awaits you to enjoy, served by some very good women. Super recomendable, would do it again some other time. Thank you very much

The whole family had an amazing and wonderful time staying at Shimoni Back Packers. Very nice tents, tasty food and very helpful and friendly staff. Snorkelling was out of this world. Beatifull coral's with amazing fishes, sea cucumber and massive sea urchins. Friendly and professional divers. Very tasty seafood lunch. We also saw whale shark and dolphins too. Thank you guys for such a lovely experience and we cannot wait to come back soon.

What a great trip we had with Pilli Pipa. The tour was organized excellent. Even we were not able to watch the Dolphins (they had their day off), we saw many wonderful fishes in all colors and shapes. The guides are very professional. And what a treat we had with the food that was served to us. The tour was worth every Cent. Thanks to Pilli Pipa.

We have dived with Pilli Pipa on two occasions. Both were fantastic days out, where we met some lovely people on board and greatly enjoyed seeing so much during our dives. Yatin and Ben are super divemasters, and we appreciated their knowledge of what to look out for underwater. The admin team is very efficient with booking trips, and everything was organised very quickly. The dhow crew and lunch staff were equally as efficient and super friendly. Lunch was delicious! We were fortunate to get to

There were those who were more afraid of water than I but we all had lots of fun. Lots of crab and Swahili dishes, The coconut sauce was scrumptious.
