Kiwengwa Caves, Kiwengwa

#4 of 6 in Nature in Zanzibar Island
Cave · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Located in a forest reserve, Kiwengwa Caves allows adventurous travelers to delve deep underground. This rustic site lets you experience caves more naturally than other cave tours, with only a concrete path and some stairs provided. You must carry your own flashlight (no other light is provided) and don't be surprised to see bats and spiders. The cave literally crawls with wildlife, including snakes and owls. Bear in mind that exploring this cave means you will get dirty; visitors should be able to crawl and climb without difficulties. Plan your visit to Kiwengwa Caves and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kiwengwa trip planner.

  • We went there to bird watch but the caves are well worth a visit if you want to get away from the beach and the heat for a while!  more »
  • We saw the Caves mentioned on the internet so organised a local driver to take us there. The signs leading in are quite old and unkempt which doesn't attract sightseeing but the caves are wonderful...  more »
  • Quite interesting history class here that is almost forgetten, a route developed post slave trade abolishment so to say.
  • Absolutely awesome place, with its stalactites and stalagmites and crystal that forms on the walls. Many animal species live there, whose frightening (but not dangerous) bats and spiders. Another phenomenon interesting the roots of trees that pierce the soil and find themselves in the middle of the basement. Finally there are also holes of light that break by time the absolute darkness of the cellar.
