Activities & Excursions
Zala Park is run by a local schoolteacher who was tired of seeing native species killed by locals out of fear. The park’s ranger ‘ Mohammad’ will introduce you to snakes, monitor lizards, crabs, turtles, dik dik (tiny gazelles) and hyrax, the closest living species to the elephant.
All the animals are living comfortably in a natural habitat. If you show an interest in them Mohammed will take you on a personal tour of the zoo. He may even let you crawl into the python area (caged in a type of chicken wire) to handle the snakes. With some weighing up to 35 kilos you may be left wondering who is handling whom.
All excursions can be arranged and booked at our tour office ‘Mrembo Tours’ situated at the hotel.
