For centuries, the Nabooti tribe has been protected by the power of seven sacred jewels. But now, the jewels are missing! Trek across Africa to find the missing jewels and return them to the Nabooti tribe. You’ll visit pyramids, ancient mines, and giant waterfalls on your online virtual world quest.

  • Nabooti Island is Poptropica’s 7th island, released on December 11, 2008.
  • It is based on the Choose Your Own Adventure book, The Lost Jewels of Nabooti.
  • Common room: Fly-By-Night Airlines
  • Currently, membership is required to play the full island, and non-members can play a demo version only. Prior mid-late-June 2015, this island had always been free for everyone, having been released before membership was even a reality.
  • Players fly to various places in Africa, such as Blue Nile Falls, Pyramids of Giza, Mountains of the Moon, etc.
  • The cell phone you find at Mountains of the Moon can be used to get a cool new costume. Type in 1225 for a Santa Hat and Sack, 911 for a Police Outfit, 411 for a Brain Helmet, and 1337 for a Nerdy Outfit. When the island was first released, a glitch allowed typing in numbers in the 100’s for handheld items such as a paintbrush, spear, etc. but this was fixed a day later.
  • After the totem flies away into outer space at the end, there is an “invisible platform” glitch where you can stand in thin air by jumping up to where the head of the totem used to be.
  • The Digital Camera has “XL2” on it, which could be a reference to the Canon XL2 camcorder – but that’s not quite the same thing as a digital camera. The one on Nabooti Island could only hold 8 color images, like the early consumer cameras of the early 1990s.

    the first time i played nabooti i won it the first day it was out!

  3. Clothes Minded says:

    I’m not sure where the cell phone is. Can you help?

    Scary Tomato: It’s in the cave in the Mountains of the Moon. Win the man there in a game of Mancala, and you’ll be able to enter the cave. 😉

  4. Shoeless Runner says:

    the cell phone is in the cave in mountains of the moon.


    Codien: Jump over it.

  6. shaggy tornado says:

    Make all the platforms straight. Then go across and go up. Then solve the block puzzle. Move the 1st block to the right a little bit. Then move the 2nd block to its outline. Then move the 3rd block to the one on the right. Then push both blocks to their outline. Then push the last block to the right then to its outline. A passage should open up. Then go in it. Step on the right bricks. first jump on the human brick, then the zigzag line brick, then the bird and cane brick, then the eye brick. then go up the rope. Then u should see the big statues and levers. Pull the 4th switch, then the 2nd, then the 3rd, then the 1st. The mummy case should open up. Then get the blue jewel.

    Hope this helped Savannah! 😉

  22. Fierce Flipper says:

    It was fun but by far one of the hardest islands I’ve ever completed. So glad I completed it. 😀

  23. I won Nabooti Island the first day it came out! Hooray for me!! However, I didn’t start to look at your blog until October 2008, so I never knew much before then about Poptropica. 😥 But, I’m still glad about my Nabooti Island success!! 😀

  24. Nice Guide!! It’s one of my favorite Poptropica Blogs!! 😀

  25. Poptropica Rules!! It’s one of my favorite websites to go to in the entire world!!

  26. Nabooti’s “secret” is really… well, different… I was expecting a more climactic ending with all that hard work to go through…

  27. Did you know that if you press the link on the bottom of the page on the computer in the Internet Cafe in Safari,you will see that Big Zeke has been to all the places that you have? I just discovered that today! 😀

  28. Director Comet (Bronze Comet) says:

    PHB you’ve got to help me now,on my other account i finished Nabooti but when i checked the totem is still there and i lost my blue and green jewel!this is urgent,what happend anyway?

    Scary Tomato: It’s probably a glitch where the game didn’t save. Try refreshing the page and clearing your cache, then logging in again. If it still doesn’t work, re-do that part of the Nabooti quest. 😉

  29. thanks

  30. Hmm, I liked this island alot only it wasn’t as good as I expected. But, I think that because the made us wait so long, I kept my hopes up REALLY high so it’s no wonder I was disappointed. 😉

  31. Shaggy Tornado: actually, Big Zeke only posted pictures he took, but labeled the aanimals with the wrong names;his pictures weren’t so good until the player (you) came along, OK?

    Scary Tomato: No, Shaggy Tornado’s right. There’s another link you can click on the computer. 😉

  32. shaggy tornado: Your Right!

  33. Young Moon says:

    Nabooti was so nice. I made other poptropicans and completed it three times. I just got the book and am going to read it.

  34. nabooti is the best island!!! 😀 🙂 😉

  35. Rainbow bird says:

    I love Nabooti island! 😀
    I think Nabooti island is so easy!

  36. Rainbow bird says:

    Does anyone know what number to type on the phone to get the wand? Because I lost my wand by mistake.

    Scary Tomato: There’s no number for a wand. 😉

  37. massive peanut says:

  39. The winner of the golden globe awards is… drum roll please…………… NABOOTI ISLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. i love nabooti cause there is so many places!! and inside the sphinx i saw signs so i jump it on!! but i fell down

    Scary Tomato: If you need help, you can read the guide shown above (Click on the ‘Guide’ button.) to tell you how to pass the “signs” so you don’t fall down. 😉

  41. Thanks. I couldnt find out what to do at the diamond mines :).

  42. I am so glad you made the guide!! I might have never known where to put the jewels on the totem (rocket ship)!!! 😀 😀 😀

  43. shaggy tornado: OH! I get it! thanx so much!! 😉

  44. Nabooti was hard.

  45. winner123 says:

    I think nabooti is the best of all the islands.

  46. For some reason,Nabooti Island reminds me of the movie Indiana Jones.

  47. Yeah, legodude12, it does for me, too. Especially the airplane thingy, with the flying around and all.

  48. I finished Nabooti island but when I was talking to the merchants the one to the left said she traded Ancient Artifacts. What else is there to trade, and how do I get it! I’ve searched everywhere! Please HELP!!!!

    Scary Tomato: Nothing’s wrong. That merchant will say she trades ancient artifacts even after the quest is completed. 😉

  49. I can’t the find the map that the pilot of the plane asks for. I looked all over the place. I could really use help. Thanks

    Scary Tomato: It’s in Nabooti Museum. Talk to the person near the totem. For more information, read our guide mentioned above. 😉

  50. Trusty Bee says:

    How do you get past the jumping guards in Giza?

    • squeezysinker29 says:

      Trusty Bee: Find the black hat thing and go to Giza and they will stop beating you up and chasing you

      • Cool Bean says:

        You actully have to trade the Egyptian Blue Lilly you find in Blue Nile Falls, and the lady who trades Rare Flowers and herbs will give you the hat.

  51. Fearless Paw says:

    I think this island was challenging, but I rarely visit it…My resort is Shark Tooth.

  52. Hey guys! They changed the secret on Nabooti! When u put in the crystals, the statue says,” Thank you friend. Now that my power crystals are restored, i can finally go home.” Then it shoots into space as usual. Then the woman says that she cant believe that they r of alien origin. Its actually intresting.

  53. Fearless Paw says:

    This is the hardest island as of April 25th, 2009.

  54. bonythunder says:

    from a rating scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best),nabooti is on 9.

  55. Might Fang says:

    • Prickly Dolphin says:

      Speaking of Firework by Katy Perry on Windows Media Player, I was playing Katy Perry Firework on iTunes. I have iTunes and Windows Media Player. I putted Katy Perry on Windows Media Player yesterday. The song Firework for the totem was a perfect time. Nabooti Island was so easy. My favorite parts from the island was finding the jewels.

  72. Cuddly Cheetah says:

    Big Zeke’s favorite movies are night of the living carrots and carrots of fire- Which were playing in the theater on 24 carrot island!

  73. Nabooti island came out on December 11, 2008, not November 10, 2008. The Creator’s Blog post written on December 10, 2008 is titled “Nabooti Eve,” and there’s a short poem saying that Nabooti will come out the next day. 😉

    Slanted Fish: You’re right, though the “Nabooti now online” post seems to have mysteriously disappeared.

  74. Just finished the game, its alot of fun!

  75. wat number am i supposed to dial to get a hard hat for diamond mines??

    Slanted Fish: The hard hat is from Big Zeke in the Safari, not through the phone. See our Nabooti Island Guide for more help. 🙂
