We will take you to a little village that is still untouched by tourism. The walk through the village will show you local life; discover little village shops, unusual trees, local women chatting in the shade and children playing underneath mango trees.

After a local lunch prepared by villagers, we continue to the beach where you can explore the grounds of an abandoned eco-resort with an eerie atmosphere. It will be an interesting visit since you will see tourism development in Zanzibar from a different side, certainly away from all tourists.

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?
