Waste of time, no explanations about what the project is doing. They just take the entrance fees and you are left staring into a pond wondering what it's all about. The 'centre' needs to be lifted up before a visit is justified.

This review is for Baraka Natural Aquarium in the Baraka Beach Bungalows - Im not sure if it's the same aquarium - but we had an amazing time swimming with the turtles. They provided us with a snorkel and mask and lets swim around whilst they fed them seaweed. The turtles seem healthy and happy and it was a total pleasure to come in such close contact with them and in a beautiful setting! A highlight of our trip.

Not very well signposted, found it completely by accident as it is right next to where we were staying and we cut through when the tide was in,went swimming with the turtles, very cool....for about $10, also fed them and the fish.

A great place to go if you want to see turtles, and swim with them. However their should be more rules and control over interacting with the turtles as I've seen on numerous occasions guests screaming and kicking at the turtles when they get to close to them. Which is highly unacceptable.None of the staff speak good English or seem to have any idea about what (if any) release programs exist. I've yet to meet a manager on site.

That said the turtles all seem very happy, healthy, well fed and the place is always clean. I just think it needs direction.

Not much to see for 5$ - 27 turtles that ate some sea lettuce in a small salt water lagoon. The staff didn't speak much English and don't say much. There was a bunch of 2 day old baby turtles that were placed in big basins and fed tiny fish. The only other thing to see is a regular tortoise and 3 Tanzanian immigrant crocodiles. Max 20 minute visit. The beach at the entrance is beautiful.
