    My family really enjoyed our tailor made trip. It wouldn't have been the same without or excellent guide Salum. He was friendly, funny and full of information. My two young daughters are still asking about him a week later! I would absolutely recommend Zenith Tour for young families as the Zanzibar is the perfect pace, a great mix of downtime and sightseeing.

    Excellent trip. I had a great time. There was nothing I could complain about. Guide was great and was always willing to talk with me, even answer what was probably an endless list of questions. Over 5 days we definitely had a feel for what the country looks like.

Full day tour… The “Village Life” excursion will provide unique insights into traditional lifestyles of fishing and farming embraced by the local communities of the region. The excursion begins with a visit to a spice plantation. Not only will you see how farmers cultivate spices, fruits and vegetables, you will also get to smell and taste them, as fruit samples and spiced teas. After a short stop at the Kidichi Persian Baths you will proceed to the village of Mchangani where little has changed during the past centuries.

Women still utilize dried palm leaves for weaving mats and thatching roofs. Enter a local home and see how women paint henna and collect water from long-standing wells. Locals will demonstrate and explain how coconuts are essential in the everyday life of villagers. You will be able to participate in learning how to remove the husk and witness the grating process.

At the Mkokotoni fish market you will see the vast variety of fish caught in Zanzibar’s waters. Our next stop will constitute a visit to a local blacksmith, who will amongst other thing show you how he manually produces nails for building projects. At around 1:30 p.m. lunch will be served in Nungwi; the restaurant is situated on one of the island’s most beautiful beach and guests will be given the chance to take a splash into the pristine turquoise blue water. So don’t forget to bring your beachwear!

In Nungwi you will witness how wooden dhows are built. It is fascinating to watch local craftsmen produce such magnificent navigating vessels with their simple tools and constructions materials. Last stop will be at the “Mnarani Natural Aquarium”. The lagoon functions as a prime conservation area and focused on scientific study, as well as serving as a sanctuary for the endangered Green Sea Turtle.
