Jambiani cultural village tour and beach day

Visit the fishing village of Jambiani on Zanzibar’s South East Coast, learn about seaweed farming, coconut rope making and other interesting aspects of Zanzibar village life, and relax on the beautiful endless beach.

Jambiani is one of the friendliest villages on the island and because it’s so stretched out and long, you don’t feel like there are other tourists around. The villagers are very friendly and like to share their culture with you.

Much has changed in the last years on the archipelago of Zanzibar as tourism has increased so much.

On this tour we like to show you the livelihood of the island like seaweed farming (depending on the tide) and others which are under threat with technology and western solutions taking over.

Witness the natural and intelligent ways of using coconut in the diet, the beauty of making coconut milk from scratch and meet a wise herbalist who forages daily and still carries the knowledge to cure mainly female, hormonal issues purely with healing herbs and medicinal plants.

You can book this day with or without a local lunch and we will take you to one of the hotels after the tour so you can have a swim in the azure waters and soak up the sun.

Please bring a beach towel and kindly wear modest clothing during the village tour so as to respect the villagers.
