  • I couldn’t decide whether or not to visit but am glad I did. I’m not sure why my experience was different to some reviews as the staff were not at all friendly. One man wanted money straight away...  more »

  • Such a fascinating place. Bring a diving mask and light that works underwater to see the depths of the cave. Ask them to point out the giant ancient bone calcified into the bottom of the cave under the water line.
  • BEST EXPERIENCE IN ZANZIBAR AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE ! The Kuza Caves was one of the best experiences I have had in Zanzibar. The Kuza Caves are based right next to a tiny village and is managed by a lovely lady from Australia who is married to a Tanzanian. She lives there with her wonderful children and she is running a local school to make education better. They also have opportunities for volunteer teachers. Besides visiting the beautiful caves and learning ancient history about the area, they also offer cooking lessons. We visited the caves and we loved the area and the wonderful people so much that we came back the next day for a cooking lesson (Swahili seafood). This was the best meal I have had in Zanzibar. The chef was amazing and showed us traditional Swahili cuisine (we had delicious fish curry with coconut rice and vegetables). We all sat together with the family and enjoyed our dinner whilst learning about culture and traditions.
