What to expect and how you'll make an impact

Nungwi is home to some of Zanzibar’s finest beaches. With white coral sand that seems to glow day and night, it is a popular tourist destination. Volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in helping boost wild turtle populations and assist with treating and releasing injured turtles.

As a Turtle Conservation volunteer you’ll be based at the Nungwi Marine Turtle Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a long established conservation program where injured marine turtles are treated and looked after at a natural lagoon. The turtles are released several times per year and the project also breeds turtle eggs at a safe location until the baby turtles hatch. Young turtles are kept at various pools and at the lagoon. They are released into the ocean once they reach a size that guarantees a higher chance of survival in the wild.

Volunteers will be involved in tasks such as:

  • Cleaning the turtles, lagoon and pools
  • Collecting seaweed
  • Feeding the turtles
  • Medically treating injured and sick turtles (under supervision of local staff)
  • Guiding tourists visiting the lagoon.

Location

The Marine Turtle Sanctuary is based at Nungwi, a small town perched on the northern tip of Zanzibar. With spectacular beaches and a coral reef, there is plenty of fishing, snorkeling, diving, sightseeing and relaxing to be done.

Arrival and orientation

Volunteers need to arrive in Zanzibar on their start date and their orientation will take place the following day.

After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ) in Zanzibar. Your airport pick-up is included in your Program Fee. We recommend that volunteers under the age of 18 travel internationally with a notarized letter from their parents to support their documentation.

When you arrive, you will be greeted at the airport by a member of the local team and transported to the volunteer accommodation. Your accommodation is covered by your Program Fee and includes the Wednesday night before your Thursday program orientation. If you are traveling in Tanzania prior to your volunteer program, we can arrange for you to be picked up in Zanzibar on your start date.

Orientation is hosted by our local team at the volunteer accommodation. Orientation begins on the Thursday morning after your chosen start date. Orientation covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Zanzibar – an introduction to Zanzibar, Zanzibar customs, rules and expectations, language lessons (Kiunguja), safety, travel opportunities in Zanzibar, and an introduction to your project and placement. The orientation will also give you a chance to meet other volunteers.

Volunteer schedule example

First Day

On the first day of the volunteering placement, you will be escorted to the project by our local staff and introduced to the staff at the placement you will be working with.

Weekdays - A typical day would be as follows:

8:00 AMBreakfast
8:30 AMVolunteers travel to their placements
1:00 - 2:00 PMLunch at the volunteer accommodation
9:00 PMVolunteers resume work for the afternoon
9:00 PMDinner at the accommodation

Weekends

Volunteers have free time on the weekends and are able to make the most of the gorgeous beaches, explore Zanzibar’s historic Stone Town or other towns, shop for souvenirs, or enjoy a range of adventure and outdoor activities including snorkeling, diving, swimming, wildlife viewing and fishing. If you’re staying for a while you may also like to fly back to mainland Tanzania or other parts of Africa where you can go on safari or otherwise explore.

Accommodation and WiFi

Volunteers on the Turtle Conservation project stay in a beachside bungalow. You can expect to share with 1 to​ 5 other volunteers of the same gender.

Bedding is​ ​provided, however you will need​ ​to bring​ ​your own towel and toiletries. It is​ ​also​ ​recommended to bring​ ​a​ sleeping bag for weekends away​. There is a cook who​ ​​prepares meals for the​ ​volunteers and the local​ ​​team​​ are also available on a daily basis​ during the week for support and via phone over the weekend.​

If you would like to keep connected during your stay, we recommend bringing an unlocked mobile phone and the local team will provide you with a local SIM card at your orientation. The local team will provide more information on how to top up your SIM at the orientation. For volunteers in the Turtle Conservation project you can also access WiFi at local cafes and restaurants.

If you would like to arrive a day earlier than your recommended arrival date, or wish to spend a few extra nights after finishing your program, we can arrange extra nights of accommodation for you for $29 per person, per night on the Turtle Conservation project. Meals are included, and extra nights are subject to availability. There is an additional surcharge attached when volunteers need airport pick-up earlier than their Wednesday start date.

If you would like to arrange extra nights of accommodation, just make a note in your application or contact your IVHQ Program Manager who will be happy to assist you.

Meals

Zanzibar’s cuisine varies across the island, owing to the difference in produce inland and along the coast. The immigration of Khoja Indians has resulted in local dishes influenced by Indian cuisine. Staple foods in Zanzibar include rice, ugali (maize porridge), chapati and coconut milk.

Volunteers are served three meals per day. Breakfast usually consists of a hot Zanzibari spice tea, instant coffee, chapati, mandazi (deep fried dough), toast with jam, and fruit.

Lunch and dinner are usually plain white rice or pilau rice (which in Zanzibar includes cardamom, cinnamon and cloves), pasta, french fries or ugali with meat or vegetables (usually carrot, potatoes, peas, okra) typically cooked in a coconut sauce that contains some herbs and spices.

Please note that while the local team can cater for vegetarians, they are not able to cater to other special dietary requirements or requests, you should not expect to eat as you normally do at home and there is the need to be flexible or prepared to supplement the food provided. If supplementing food, volunteers must note that the kitchen is not available for volunteer use.

Bottled water is readily available in Zanzibar and volunteers should budget approximately $5 per week for 2 liters per day.

Nungwi Beach and Turtle Sanctuary // Cinematic Travel Video // Zanzibar 2019

© JfJacobsz / Getty Images

In 1993 the villagers of Nungwi opened this turtle sanctuary in a large natural tidal pool near the lighthouse and since then these sea creatures have enjoyed a degree of protection from being hunted and eaten. You can see turtles of various species and sizes, and proceeds from entrance fees fund an education project for local children, hopefully demonstrating the benefits of turtle conservation.

If fishermen accidentally catch a turtle in their net, they bring it to the aquarium. Likewise, turtle eggs discovered on the beach are brought here to hatch.

On a single day every February, a highlight of the year is when local people, tourists, hotels and dive centres cooperate with conservationists to assist hundreds of hatchlings survive their perilous journey across the beach and out to the open sea.

This centre should not be confused with the nearby Baraka Natural Aquarium, which unfortunately allows guests to swim to turtles (an activity that conservationists believe is harmful for the animals).
