Meet Lau

Member since: November 2015

Hi, my name is Lau. I am a born and bred Zanzibari, who works as a tour guide and loves the Indian Ocean (swimming, snorkeling, diving...you name it!), football and reggae. His momma taught him how to cook and he fine-tuned those cooking skills through training in hotels. I would love to bring you in touch with the culture of my beautiful island and give back to my community. Come and join?
