Karibu Zanzibar - Welcome Inside!

Are you looking for a thoroughly original, sustainable and personalized holiday experience?

Then Zanzibar Different is for you!

We are a small, professional tour company based in Zanzibar and well connected to mainland Tanzania. Our specialty are truly off-the-beaten-track excursions and activities, combining culture, history, nature and the arts.

Zanzibar is becoming a mass destination fast and we are alarmed by the impact it has on the island. We as Zanzibar Different want to stay away from the crowds and support the local community by inspiring our visitors to buy local and explore the real Swahili coast.

Come with us and see the difference!

Our Workshops

We offer a wide range of workshops by skilled artists and artisans, who are passionate about their craft and love to share it with you.

The workshops are conducted in different locations and have different pricing; just let us know which one/s you’re interested in, and we’ll give you all the information.


Many children in Zanzibar don’t get the chance to explore much of their beautiful homeland. They have long days at school and chores at home, and often their families can’t afford extra activities.

We at Zanzibar Different would like to inspire and encourage you to be part of the future of Zanzibar’s children.
If you would like to contribute and prefer to give in a more sustainable way, we as Zanzibar Different can help distribute funds so that it reaches the right people.

With you help we can arrange tailor-made excursions for local kids. They will playfully explore their island’s nature, gain an understanding of the different ecosystems and (we hope) learn to appreciate and cherish them.

The excursions are carefully put together to be inspiring, fun as well as educational, and we invite children from low-income families who otherwise won’t have this opportunity.

If you would like to support this project or you have ideas and suggestions, we would love to hear from you and of course we will also contribute our share.

Pamoja (together) we can help!
