Saadani National Park is a ninety minute drive from Ushongo. Full day or overnight visits are recommended. Although Saadani is one of the smallest national parks in Tanzania most large species can be seen such as lion, elephant, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and buffalo. The Wami River in the south has hippos and crocodiles. A simple mobile camp can be arranged on request.

Snorkeling/Diving off Maziwe Island in the Coelacanth Marine Park. Maziwe Reef is excellent for both snorkeling and diving. Snorkeling is $45 per person and includes the park fee of $12.50, boat, crew and snorkeling equipment. Children are half price. The trip starts at 8 a.m. and returns mid-day. Fun diving starts at $120 for a double dive.

PADI Courses are held by the nearby Kasa Diving School owned and operated by PADI European qualified instructors and their Tanzania staff. Courses are for 2 or more days. A 4-day Open Water Diver Certification course is $490.

Sailing: There is a 7-metre Westerly-22 day cruiser with a bilge keel available for hire at $100 per half day or $150 full day. The local villagers use small wooden trimarans called “Ngalao” which are quite fast but the narrow hollowed out tree trunk is not designed for comfort and is not safe in strong winds and white caps.

Zanzibar Island is 40 kms from Ushongo. It is a two and a half hour boat ride to Kenrock at the northern end of Zanzibar. Stone Town, the capital town of Zanzibar, is an hour’s drive from Kenrock. A spice tour and the narrow streets of Stone Town are recommended. Two days are recommended to include both a Spice Tour and Stone Town.
