Kitu Kiblu runs half-day encounter trips allowing visitors to interact with whale sharks in a safe, relaxed and respectful way. The encounter trips are launched from the KituKiblu Beach Lodge, Kilindoni, Mafia Island. We run internship programs, for those with an interest in marine conservation looking to gain skills and experience working at sea.
Kitu Kiblu offers half-day trips to individuals and groups who wish to view (and have close-up, relaxed encounters with) wild whale sharks, learn about their biology and ongoing conservation issues and efforts. We are open from October 1st to March but may open earlier if whale sharks are already feeding on the surface.» See More
