Kizimkazi - officially Kizimkazi Mkunguni, but also known as Kizimkazi Mtendeni - is a fishing village on the southern coast of Zanzibar, Tanzania, and was once a walled city.[1] It is situated three miles southeast of the Kizimkazi Mosque (which is located in Kizimkazi Dimbani, commonly known just as Dimbani).[1] In recent years, Kizimkazi has become a major tourist attraction,[2] as daily boat tours are organized to bring visitors off shore to watch bottlenose dolphins and swim with them.
