Kichwani

Kichwani is the most popular dive site in Mnemba. It is formed by a big coral reef that starts from the surface and goes to 30 meters depth. The reef is formed by a good mixture of hard and soft corals of different colors. Don’t miss the glassfish shelter at 25 meters!

All the reef fishes can be spotted here, from puffer and butterfly fish to the rare frogfish! Napoleon fish and Jackfish can be seen on the blue side. Dolphins can sometimes be seen as well.
